Anyone who grew up with a Mister Softee ice cream truck surely remembers what the jingle sounds like. But did you know that the tune, which was written in 1960 by Les Waas, has both a title ("Mister Softee Jingle and Chimes") and lyrics? Here they are:

Here comes Mister Softee The soft ice cream man. The creamiest, dreamiest soft ice cream, You get from Mister Softee. For a refreshing delight supreme Look for Mister Softee. My milkshakes and my sundaes And my cones are such a treat. Listen for my store on wheels Ding-a-ling down the street. The creamiest dreamiest soft ice cream, You get from Mister Softee.

You can make it your ringtone here.
