ICE MAN BLUES
(George Kirby)
As recorded by Tom Archia and His All Stars, vocal by George Kirby, Aristocrat 602A, 1947.

I'm the ice man, baby; I sell the coldest stuff in town.
I'm the ice man, baby; yes, I sell the coldest stuff in town.
Anytime you get hot, baby, call up ol' ice man an' I'll cool you down.

Ev'ry man's got a woman, an' ev'ry boy's got a chick.
Ev'ry man's got a woman—hoo!—an' ev'ry boy's got a chick.
But you don't have to worry 'bout ol' ice man, 'cause ol' ice man always have his pick.

You owe me for fifty pounds, yes, and you claimed you ain't got no dough.
Listen to me baby: you owe me for fifty pounds, and you come 'round here tellin' me you ain't got no dough.
Well, if you [don't?] pay me some o' my money, I ain't gon' put it in your box no mo'.

I sell ice to all the women, to all the finest chicks in town.
Won't their husbands be real salty when they find out what ol' ice man's puttin' down?
I'm the ice man, baby; yes, I sell the coldest stuff in town,
And won't their husbands be real salty when they find out what ol' ice man's puttin' down?
And I sell the coldest stuff in town.
