Icicle

Icicle

Icicle, icicle, icicle

I want to bite an -icicle, icicle, icicle

I want to bite an icicle

I want a piece of  ice.

I want to eat it where I like

I want to eat it now.

****

You say cough, I say cold,

You say fever, I say hold:

Let not your imagination go bold.

****

Icicle, icicle, icicle

I want to chew an icicle

I want to munch some ice.

****

You say fridge, I say woods n’ hanging stalactites

You say frost,  I say fun

Hold your horses, don’t let your monkey mind run.

****

Icicle, icicle, icicle,

I want adventure in the wilderness

I want to touch boughs with snowy lace.

I want tongue tingling ice.

Nothing matters but the feel of ice.

I want to eat it now .

  1. Queen’s lyrics
    First and second verse

    Bicycle, bicycle, bicycle
    I want to ride my bicycle, bicycle, bicycle
    I want to ride my bicycle
    I want to ride my bike
    I want to ride my bicycle
    I want to ride it where I like
    You say black, I say white
    You say bark, I say bite
    You say shark, I say hey man
    Jaws was never my scene
    And I don’t like Star Wars
