I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Ice Cream
Song by Billy Moll, Howard Johnson, Robert A. K. King
Recorded on Jan. 14, 1928

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

In the land of ice and snows
Up among the Eskimos,
There’s a college known as Ogiwawa!
You should hear those college boys,
Gee, they make an awful noise
When they sing an Eskimo tra-la-la!

They’ve got a leader, big cheer leader,
Oh, what a guy!
He’s got a frozen face just like an Eskimo Pie!
When he says, Come on, let’s go!”
Though it’s forty-five below,

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Tuesdays, Mondays, we all scream for sundaes,
Sis-boom-bah!
Boola-boola, sarsaparoolla,
If you got chocolate, we’ll take vanoola!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
Rah! Rah! Rah!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Frosts and malts that are peppered and salted,
Sis-boom-bah!
Oh, spumoni, oh, cartoni,
And confidentially, we’ll take baloney,
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
Rah! Rah! Rah!

Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah!

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

In the land of ice and snows
Up among the Eskimos,
There’s a college known as Ogiwawa!
You should hear those college boys,
Gee, they make an awful noise
When they sing an Eskimo tra-la-la!

They’ve got a leader, big cheer leader,
Oh, what a guy!
He’s got a frozen face just like an Eskimo Pie!
When he says, Come on, let’s go!
Though it’s forty-five below,
This is what the Eskimos all holler:

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Tuesdays, Mondays, we all scream for sundaes,
Sis-boom-bah!
Boola-boola, sarsaparoolla,
If you got chocolate, we’ll take vanoola!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
Rah! Rah! Rah!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Frosts and malts that are peppered and salted,
Sis-boom-bah!
Oh, spumoni, oh, cartoni,
And confidentially, we’ll take baloney,
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
Rah! Rah! Rah!

Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah!
