Ice-Cream Truck Ballad

I heard an old familiar sound
Just on the other day,
Which started me to thinking
In a nostalgic way.

Ringing through the neighborhood
Was the delightful tune.
I found me patting both my feet.
It made me want to croon.

Such sound, so gentle and so sweet,
And so very mild,
Took me back to the days
When I was just a child.

With favorite treats less than a buck,
‘Twas the sound of the ice cream truck.

Refrain:
The ice cream truck.
The ice cream truck
Everybody loves
The ice cream truck.
A sound that never runs amok—
The sound of the ice cream truck.
