you were cold to the touch
i always had to come to you
pick you out and heat you up
my doctors said you were bad for me
but i still loved you
your moods came in many flavors
one day you be sweet the next tangy
but soon are affair will end
i will miss you
with these chains holding are kisses back
what will i do
i carve for you
day and night
what will i do with out you
even if the chains come off
i still cant have you
i will miss you
ice cream
i will miss you

Ice Cream

I bought some ice cream at the store,
Ate it all, but wanted more...
Got a little larger cone,
Two scoops with sprinkles,
Should it be known...




Still I was not satisfied,
Wanted more ice cream inside...
To the store I went again,
And got a triple-scoop my friend...




But when I was done,
My stomach did growl,
"Give me more Ice cream!"
I heard it howl...
So to the store yet again,
And said to the owner (we'll call him Ben),
"Give me a quadruple-scoop, triple fudge swirl,
Make it a double, with a strawberry whirl!"
Ben stacked nice ice cream,
At least two feet too high,
And he gave a grave look at me,
Right in my eye...




He said, "Listen kid,
If you eat all this now,
You're gonna be sick,
And as big as a cow...




But I ate, and I ate, and I ate, and I ate,
Until it was gone,
And I was still feeling great!!!
Was I quite finished?
Was I quite done?
No!
Give me an ice cream,
As big as the sun!




Ben's hands were tired from scooping ice cream,
I stood and I watched as if in a dream.
Rocky Road, Coffee, Caramel Whipped Cream,
French Vanilla so sweet, Mint Chocolate Green...
Chewy Cherry Chocolate Chip, Crunchy Crunch Bar,
Marshmallow Mushy Fudge, my favorite so far!
Bubble Gum, Spaghetti, and Pizza ice cream,
Taco, Egg Roll, every flavor I dream!
And when Ben was all done,
Scooping sweet stuff,
He gave it to me and said,
"Kid, I hope this is enough..."

I took the cone,
That was piled so high,
That cold from my ice cream,
Brought rain from the sky...
(cold clouds make rain...)




It reached so far up,
That the man on the moon,
Took a few licks,
Then took out a spoon.




Ice cream so high,
It hurt me to think,
Was I really not hungry?
Did I just want a drink?




I don't like to say it,
But the truth is quite true,
I didn't want ice cream,
Can I give it to you?
I asked a few people,
If they wanted to eat,
But they had to have dinner and couldn't eat sweets.
So I let it all melt into a sea of ice soup,
That covered the world,
In one great big loop...
People sailed through it,


In banana split boats,
Castles were surrounded by ice cream filled moats...
And people ate it,
and ate it,
and ate it they did,
And the sea got smaller,
Like an adult to a kid...




=



It was soon so small,
That folks couldn't find it,
I know it sounds bad,
but I didn't mind it...
Many explorers have searched for the spot,
Do I tell where it is???
I think quite...NOT!!!!!
It never runs out,
And it's always so good,
I don't like to share it,
But I know that I should...
Because the ice cream's still sweet,
As sweet as can be,
Maybe one day you'll come share some with me...
