The Zamboni Machine Driver

This morning when I was driving me son Tate to pre-school he called out to me in the front seat.

"Dad"

"Yeah" I said.

"When I grow up, I want to go to an ice skating rink and I want to drive a Zamboni."

"Yeah? That's pretty cool."

"Yeah, when I grow up I want to be a Power Ranger and I want to drive a Zamboni machine"

"Well Tate when you grow up, you can be whatever you want. If you want to drive a Zamboni, I think that's cool."

Gear Daddies- I Wanna Drive The Zamboni


Well I went down to the local arena
Asked to see the manager man
He came from his office, said, "Son can I help you?"
I looked at him and said, "Yes you can..."
I want to Drive the Zamboni...hey
I want to Drive the Zamboni...Yes I do!
Now ever since I was young it's been my dream
That I might drive a Zamboni machine
I'd get the ice just as slick as could be
And all the kids would look up to me
I want to drive the Zamboni...hey
I want to drive the Zamboni...Yes I do!
Now the manager said, "Son, I know it looks keen
But that right there is one expensive machine
And I've got Smokey who's been driving for years."
About that time I broke down in tears.
Cause I want to drive the Zamboni...hey
I want to drive the Zamboni...Yes I do!

Whoops, copyrighted lyrics probably not a good idea, esp. on this blog :-)
