Scary Ice Cream Truck Music

Note. The tune that comes in faintly at the end of the first version of 55147 twelve o’clock has a life of its own on the internet as “scary ice cream truck music.” The melody is from “The Waits Carol,” also known as “The Moon Shines Bright.” It is an old English song, dating to perhaps the 16th century.

One verse goes:

The life of man is but a span, —
It is cut down in its flower;
We are here to-day,
and to-morrow are gone;
We are all dead in an hour.
