I got a penthouse n Manhattan
2 more n Malibu
I bought an '87 Cadillac Seville
Girl, I got a Mazarati 2
I wear diamonds on my fingers
I got a couple on my toes
I wear the finest perfume money can buy
It keeps me smellin' like a rose

If U wonder how I do it
There's just 1 simple rule
I'm just cool, oh oh
Honey baby, can't U see, girl, I'm so cool?
Ain't nobody bad like me
Hey (C-O-O-L)
What's that spell? (C-O-O-L)

I might dine n San Francisco
Dance all night n Rome
I go any freakin' place I want 2
And my Learjet brings me home (Listen 2 him)
I got ladies by the dozens
I got money by the ton
Just ain't nobody better
Heaven knows that I'm the 1

And it's all because of something
That I didn't learn n school
I'm just cool (Cool)
Honey baby, can't U see, girl, I'm so cool? (Cool)
Ain't nobody bad like me
Sing it, baby (C-O-O-L)
What's that spell? (C-O-O-L)
That spells cool (Cool)
Cool straight thru sex (Cool)
That spells cool (Cool)
Suck my dick (Cool)

What time is it? Cool

Listen baby
It takes a lot of lovin' and a little money
2 b a friend of mine
But baby, if U know how 2 shake that thing
I'll try 2 squeeze a little time
Cuz I make love, love every mornin'
2 who's ever by my side
Or U might say that I'm a nymphomaniac
But it keeps me satisfied

When I look n2 the mirror
It just tells me something I already know
I'm so cool (Cool)
Honey baby, can't U see, girl, I'm so cool? (Cool)
Ain't nobody bad like me
Sing it (C-O-O-L)
What's that spell? (C-O-O-L)
What time is it? (4) (Cool)
I'm so cool
Cool
Girl, I'm so cool
Band

C-O-O-L, C-O-O-L
Cool, that's right
I'm cooler than Santa Claus, baby
Oh, mmhmm, ain't nobody bad like me
Somebody pinch me, I must b dreamin'
I know that's right, honey
Cuz there ain't nobody bad like me
What time is it?
Is it time 2 get my hair done yet?
I said, "What time is it?"
Time 2 just walk and shake my head
I'm cool till I'm dead
Enough has been said
C'mon, baby, let's go 2 bed
Everybody, walk, shake my head
Cool till I'm dead
Enough has been said, let's go 2 bed

When I look n2 the mirror
It just tell me something I already know
I'm so cool
There ain't nobody bad like me
Girl, I'm so cool
I said ain't nobody bad like me
All 2gether now (C-O-O-L)
What's that spell? (C-O-O-L)

Band? (Yes!)
Is anybody hot? (No!)
Do U know why? (Why?)
Cuz we're cool (Cool)
{repeat chant}

Yes! No! Why? Cool {repeat}
Oh, I'm so cool
