All the characters in this song are based on real people and we used their real names.

lyrics

Greg said to Jon, I know what will be fun
We'll do a Christmas Show and all our friends will go
But all the halls were booked, and the bars and grills were too
There's got to be an opportunity we overlooked

Santa Claus, Santa Claus he's calling us just because
He wants the ICV to play at the annual Holiday elf parade
and the after party too, no I not be fooling you
This is how the Ice Cream Vendors got a Christmas Special

Jon and Greg were singing, the telephone was ringing
Who could be calling on our land line?
I saw you in the Westmont Holly Days parade last year
We thought that you were great, we’ve got to have you here
So we got into the car and we drove to the North Pole
We're off to do a gig for Santa Claus

Santa Claus, Santa Claus he's calling us just because
He wants the ICV to play at the annual Holiday elf parade
and the after party too, no I not be fooling you
This is how the Ice Cream Vendors got a Christmas Special


Driving on the road, Kansas City MO
We found Thibodaux, he was made of snow
Because we did not know we said which way will you go?
I'm traveling to the annual elf parade at the North Pole

Thibodaux, Thibodaux Fan of ICV you know
Riding with us to the gig, so it seems we all shall go
Thibodaux, Here you go here's a paper hat
Now you must be our musket, Thibodaux the traveling snowman

What's our heading? Northerly. Filling our gas tank Fully
We thought things were going fine then we saw the Dingeldein
Dingledeins are know for crashing Christmas parties
Dingledeins are know for crashing Christmas parties

Dingledein, name sublime Hates nothing more than Christmastime
Worse than that there's music too That's what we're about to do
I will stop the elf parade and the ICV
from playing happy Christmas songs at Santa's festivity

Thibodaux said yes, I won't let you down
I will be your guide on your way to Christmas Town
Dingledein will ride on his mower in the sky
But we'll get there before he ruins Christmas

Yes we got there first the parade was a success
Dingledein was late and that was for the best
He donned a paper hat and proceeded to confess:
Thibodaux is cold, but I am feeling warm
It seems that Christmastime is halfway decent!

Party time! Santa brought the beer
Dingledein wishes you good cheer
We feel fine so drink you up some wine
Celebrate with Ice Cream Vendors 'cause it's Christmas

Party time! Santa brought the beer
Dingledein wishes you good cheer
We feel fine so drink you up some wine
And Celebrate with Jon and celebrate with Greg Celebrate with Ice Cream Vendors 'cause it's Christmas

Ice Cream Vendors Westmont

The Ice Cream Vendors (ICV), made up of longtime pals Jon Kostal and Greg Barnett, is not just a musical duo but a mysterious life force. Those familiar with Jon and Greg know that boy meets girl lyrics and verse/verse/chorus clichés are simply not in their genetic makeup. Defying classification, ICV examines its subjects through a sometimes-surreal lens, but always with fondness and curiosity. ... more
