Subject: Lyr Req: If I had a nickel, I would buy a popsicle
From: GUEST,Howie

I think that the words go something like this:
    If I had a nickel, I would buy a popsicle,
    I would buy it from the popsicle man!
    As he comes down the street, with a dingle dingle dingle chim,
    all the children start running, and then they all begin to sing,
    If I had a nickel, I would buy a popsicle,
    I would buy it from the popsicle man!

If I had a nick nick nickel
I would buy a pop popsicle
Buy it from the pop popsicle man

As he comes down down the ave'nue
With a dingle dangle dongle
All the children start start running
And they all they all begin to sing

If I had a nick nick nickel
I would buy a pop popsicle
Buy it from the pop popsicle man


There may have been another stanza, but not that I can presently recall.

I learned this song in grade school, fifty years ago, and still sing it to this day! Love it, and loved the ice cream truck!!
If I had a nickle I would buy a Popsicle,
I would buy it from the Popsicle man.
As he comes down the street with his ding-a-ling-a-ling-a-ling,
All the children start running and they all begin to sing....
If I had a nickle I would buy a Popsicle,
I would buy it from the Popsicle man!

Now you've got me wondering. Are popsicles even made any more?

I can buy sushi, I can buy barbecue, I can buy tufu, arugula and appletinis, but I have no idea where I could go to buy a simple popsicle.

Yes, popsicles are made in lots of places. You can buy them in large packs from your local supermarket.

Thanks for the info. I bet they are near the ice cream, and my husband is lactose-intolerant, so we hardly go near the ice cream any more.

Mystery solved.

Subject: Lyr Add: POPSICLE (from Jan & Dean)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 09 Aug 16 - 11:10 AM

This was mentioned in another thread so I thought it should go here, although it's not exactly the song that was requested.

POPSICLE
Written by Buzz Cason & Bobby Russell.
As recorded by Jan & Dean, 1966.

My phys-ed teacher's got me workin' too hard.
Relax after school sittin' out in the yard,
Just me and my baby and I'm holdin' her hand,
And 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 o' good eatin' on a Popsicle stick.

CHORUS: Popsicle! Bomp-pa-bomp-a-bomp (etc.)
Popsicle! Bomp-pa-bomp-a-bomp (etc.)
If you want to keep cool, it does the trick,
And it comes on a stick.

Some people buy Popsicles just for kicks.
Me an' my baby we save the sticks.
To keep brothers an' sisters quiet as a mouse,
We give 'em Popsicle sticks to build a Popsicle house. CHORUS.

So when you hear the bell go ding-a-ling,
That's the Popsicle man and he's the good-eatin' king.
Save Popsicle wrappers and before long,
You'll win a phonograph to play this record on.

Popsicle! Bomp-pa-bomp-a-bomp (etc.)
[REPEAT AD LIB AND FADE.]

I recall this song very well. I will lay money on the following being the exact lyric:

If you have a nickel,
You can buy a Popsicle.
You can buy it from
The Popsicle man.

You can have any flavor
That you wish or you favor
All you do is ask
The Popsicle man.

As he comes down the street
With his ding-a-ling-a-ling-a-ling,
All the children start running
And then they all begin to sing.

If you have a nickel,
You can buy a Popsicle.
You can buy it from
The Popsicle man.

The lyrics are timeless; we need the music to accompany them.
