The song

“Ice Cream” (By Howard Johnson, Billy Moll, and A.K. King)

In the land of ice and snow

Up among the Eskimo

There’s a college known as Oogie-wawa.

You should hear those college boys

Gee, they make an awful noise

When they sing their Eskimo tra la la.

They’ve got a leader, big cheer leader, oh what a guy!

He’s got a frozen face just like and Eskimo Pie.

When he says, “Come on, Let’s go!”

Though it’s forty-five below

Listen what those Eskimo all holler:

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Rah, rah … Oogie de wawa rah rah rah!

Tuesday, Monday, we all scream for Sundae,

Sis-boom, Aurora borealea, bah!



We’ve got the chocolate

I’ll take vanoola

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Rah, rah, ice cream soda or gingerale pop!
