ICE MAN!
(Williams Mitchell)
As recorded by Billy Mitchell on Blue Records 101-B, 1953.

Ice man! Ice man!
Tellin' all you folks y'all better buy some ice.
Told you once; ain't gon' tell you twice.
Think y'all better change yo' plan
And get yo'self a new ice man.
You know, I'm sellin' the coldest ice in town.
Let me know when I can call aroun'.

I would like to be your ice man.
I'm sellin' the coldest ice in town.
Ladies all think that I'm a nice ice man,
Love to see me when I call aroun'.
The lady livin' over there across the creek,
She gets one piece and it lasts a whole week.

Better let me be your ice man.
I'm sellin' the coldest ice in town.

Tellin' that ice man! Ice man!
Coldest ice in town!
Ladies all think I'm a nice ice man,
Love to see me when I call aroun'.
You know, I'm the best ice man that's in these blocks.
I'll give you the right size piece, as sure as you're boss.

Ice man!
Sellin' the coldest ice in town!

Ice man! Ice man!
Coldest ice in town.
Ladies all think that I'm a nice ice man,
Love to see me when I call aroun'.
I'm tellin' you this, mama, and I'm tellin' you in front:
Get the right kind o' piece, it last a solid month.

Ice man! Cold ice!
Sellin' the coldest ice in town!

Ice man! Ice man!
Coldest ice in town!
Ladies all think I'm a nice ice man,
Love to see me when I call aroun'.
I got some o' the hardest ice you ever felt.
When you put it in your box, don't worry, it ain't gon' melt.

It's good ice, cold ice!
Sellin' the coldest ice in town!

Ice! Ice! Ice man!
Coldest ice in town!
An' the ladies all think I'm a nice ice man,
Love to see me when I call aroun'.
You better get you some ice that's gon' cool your meat,
'Cause them other brothers' ice won't stand the heat.

Ice man! Sellin' ice!
Sellin' the coldest ice in town.

Tellin' that ice man! Ice man!
Coldest ice in town!
An' the ladies all think I'm a nice ice man,
Love to see me when I call aroun'.
The lady livin' in the house that's painted green,
She got a good ol' box but she won't keep it clean.

Ice man!
Sellin' the coldest ice in town!
Ice man!
Ice man!
