[INTRO] (Moderately: ad-lib arpeggios [piano, really])
   Dm  /  Dm  /  BbM7  /  A+  [5x ... 5th x, move A+ fingering up every 
                                  2 frets for neat effect; then pause...]
 (quicker tempo:)
   Dm / Dm<C> / Bb7 / A7+ / [2x]
  
[Verse 1]
          Dm       /       Dm<C>  /    Bb7   /   A7+  /
 Well, I take 'em by your house about two forty-five--
  Dm  /    Dm<C>      /  Bb7   /   A7+  /
 Sidewalk sundaes, strawberry surprise--
          Dm     /  /    / Gm7   /   /   /
 I got a cherry popsickle, right on time--
    A7   /     /      /       A7+ /    /    /
 A big stick, mama, that'll blow your mind--
  
[Chorus]
             Dm    /   Dm<C>  /  Bb7   /   A7+  /
 'Cuz I'm an Ice Cream Man--
       Dm   /  Dm<C>   /  Bb7   /   A7+  /
 I'm a one-man band--
        Dm    /   Dm<C> /     Bb7   /  A7+  /  Dm  /  Dm<C> /  Bb7 / A7+ /
 I'm an Ice Cream Man, honey, I'll be good to you.
  
[Verse 2]
         Dm     /      Dm<C>   /    Bb7    /   A7+   /
 If you meet me in the alley, baby, don't you fret--
  Dm   /     Dm<C>  /   Bb7   /  A7+  /
 Come back around, and don't forget--
              Dm   /           /      /       Gm7      /      /    /
 When you're tired and you're hungry, and you want somethin' cool--
  A7  /         /       /     A7+ /    /    /
 Got somethin' better than a swimmin' pool--
  
[Chorus]
             Dm    /   Dm<C>  /  Bb7   /   A7+  /
 'Cuz I'm an Ice Cream Man--
       Dm   /  Dm<C>   /  Bb7   /   A7+  /
 I'm a one-man band--
        Dm    /   Dm<C> /     Bb7   /  A7+  /  Dm  /  Dm<C> /  Bb7 / A7+ /
 I'm an Ice Cream Man, honey, I'll be good to you.
  
             Dm    /   Dm<C>  /  Bb7   /   A7+  /
 'Cuz I'm an Ice Cream Man--
       Dm   /  Dm<C>   /  Bb7   /   A7+  /
 I'm a one-man band--
        Dm    /   Dm<C> /     Bb7   /  A7+  /  Dm  /  Dm<C> /  Bb7 / A7+ /
 I'm an Ice Cream Man, honey, I'll be good to you.

[Verse 3]
         Dm  / Dm<C>       /        Bb7  /   A7+    /
 If you see me comin', 'n'you ain't got no change--
  Dm    /     Dm<C> /     Bb7 /  A7+    /
 Don't worry, baby, it can be arranged--
   Dm     /        /     /     Gm7   /   /    /
 Show me you can smile, baby, just for me--
  A7       /       /   /         A7+    /      /    /
 Feed you with a drumstick, I'll do it for free-- 
                           [no Freudian stuff in THIS song, by God!]
  
[Chorus]
                      Dm  /  Dm<C> /  Bb7  /  A7+  /  Dm / Dm<C> /
