  • My phys-ed teacher's got me working too hard
    Relax after school sitting out in the yard
    Just me and my baby I'm holding her hand
    And then pop ding a ling here comes that popsicle man
    Orange, lemon, cherry and lime
    Fudge, tutti-frutti and a grape that's fine
    Buy one for me and one for my chick
    A lot of good eating on a popsicle stick

    Popsicle ba-ma-ma-ma-ma, ba-ma-ma-ma-ma
    Popsicle ba-ma-ma-ma-ma
    If you want to keep cool it does the trick
    And it comes on a stick
    Uh-huh-huh uh-huh-huh

    Some people buy popsicles just for kicks
    But me and my baby we save the sticks
    To keep brother and sister quiet as a mouse
    We give them popsicle sticks to build a popsicle house


    So when you hear the bell go ding a ling
    That's the popsicle man and he's the goody king
    Save popsicle wrappers and before long
    You'll win a phonograph to play this record on
