Chocolate Ice Cream Song

Song Video


My mama said if I'd be good,
She'd send me to the store
She said she'd make some gingerbread
If I would sweep the floor.

She said if I would make the bed
And dust the telephone
That she would send me out to buy
A chocolate ice cream cone.

And so I did the things she said
And then she made the gingerbread
Then I went out, just me alone
And bought a chocolate ice cream cone.

While coming back I stubbed my toe
Upon a big old stone
Now need I tell you that I dropped
My chocolate ice cream cone.

A little puppy came along
And took a great big lick
And so I hit that mean old dog
With just a little stick.

Then he bit me where I sit down
And he chased me all over town
And now I'm lost, can't find my home
And all because of a chocolate ice cream cone.

Information About Chocolate Ice Cream Song

The "Chocolate Ice Cream Song" tells the tale of a child who is promised a reward of being able to go get an ice cream cone after the child does his chores around the house. The song lyrics were written by an American country and western singer named Rose Maddox. and a record of the song was released on the Capital Records label in 1959.

It's nice to get chocolate ice cream as a reward or any time! Ice cream is a frozen dessert, frequently made from dairy products, like cream or milk, with sugar and flavouring added. A sweet desert like ice cream has been around for thousands of years, way before manufacturing plants started producing ice cream as we know it today. The first known treats like this were made by pouring fruit juice over snow.

I have been trying to remember the words to this old song. I even wondered if my mind was playing tricks on me because no one else remembered it.

My Great Grandma sang this to her 8 children, and they sang it to their 28 kids, and they sang it to their innumerable kids, my cousins and me included! When my Great Grandma sang this to me, I'd picture myself in her neighborhood, trotting off to get an ice cream cone. For years, I thought this was a song she made up to tell me about my Grandma, her daughter. Now I sing it to my Grandson. He begs for it every time. Love, love, LOVE this song!!!

My mom sang this song. I am the only one that remembered it. Sang it to my grandson and now to great grandchildren. I think it was published first in the 30s. I am 74 now so it must be that old.

My Father sang me this song with his guitar, when I was a little girl. I had always wanted to get him on video singling this song to me. So my Grandniece and Nephew would have a part of there Great Grandfather. But now it's filled one of many holes still left upon my heart. To see the words in writing so I may learn the keys and sing it myself to leave just a little part of my dad's legacy. Since I was never able to have any children, I am the only remaining legacy to my father. I only hope this will be enough of his legacy that he sung to me, that I can sing to them.

I ALWAYS thought my mother made this song up, I love it. Although now that my son is 8 he understand the words and loves the song but got sad when he realized the little boy was lost so now every time we sing it together we make up another couple sentences for the ending to make it happy for the boy.. RIP Momma you died so young and I lost you way to soon.. I'm happy to know there are more people I can connect with from this song alone...

I learned this song in elementry school 50 years ago from a friend who used to sing it all the time and I never forgot the words. I used to sing it to my kids when they were little and just found an mp3 version I have added to a CD I am making for my grand kids. I always loved this song.

My grandmother (my mothers mother), who was practically my mom, since she did most of my raising. Dearest woman in the whole wide world to me...used to sing this song all the time for me. I remember saying, "Granny sing that one song again. You knowthe one about the chocholate ice cream."
