Mexican Ice Cream is a song from Noah's Umbrella.

Julia sings alongside Minnesota while selling ice cream.


Julia: One sunny and hot summer day

To Mexico I pushed my wagon

Painted bright green I raised a cabana I rang my campana

And gave all the children heir ice cream

Para la nina (for the girl)

Children: Helado de pina

Julia: Pineapple ice cream

Para la senora (for the lady)

Children: Helado de mora

Julia: Raspberry

Para el chico Andres (for little Andy)

Crowd: Un Helado con nuez

Julia: Ice cream with nuts

Crowd: Para toda la cuadrilla

Julia: For the rest of the group

Crowd: Un helado de vanilla

Julia: Vanilla! Take it Minn!

Minnesota Cuke: Umm....

Para la nina

That's you

Helado de pina

What's that, pineapple?

Para la senora

Hello Miss?

Helado de mora


Para el chico Andres

Um... Helado con nuts


Para toda la cuadrilla'

U helado de vainilla

That's vanilla I guess... (frustrated) That's it! I'm done! I don't have time to sing and dance, Rattan may be in trouble!

Julia: Sorry ninos, we'll have to finish this later.

Kid: Come back, senor! We will sing the Dance of the Cucumber!
