Lord, I would love to be yo' iceman
But I would like to be yo' coalman, too now
I said, I would love to be yo' iceman
But then, an I would wanna be yo' coalman, too
Now, an you wouldn't be tellin' yo' coalman
You know, what yo' iceman, can do now

I'm goin' to give you my phone number
So you can call Sonny Boy up, ev'ryday
I'm goin' to give you my phone number
So you can call Sonny Boy up, ev'ryday now
Now you need an ice or coal?

You must let Sonny Boy know, right away now!

(harmonica & instrumental)

Now, an I b'lieve you need some ice
Baby, yo' ice has done gotten old now
I b'lieve you need some ice, yeah
Baby, yo' ice had done gotten old
Now an I won't disturb none-a-yo' people
Babe, I'll ease it in through yo' back do' now

Now tell me what the matter wit' your basement?
I don't b'lieve you use Sonny Boy's coal, no mo' now
Oh, tell me what the matter wit your basement?
I don't b'lieve you use Sonny Boy's coal, no mo' now
Well, I always been nice to you
I would bring it in through yo' back do'.
