I've seen a many bridges n my time
And crossed every 1 of 'em with no trouble at all
Yeah...
I had trials and tribulations, heartaches and pains
(Well, that's alright)
Survived 'em all, baby (Uh-huh, say it, say it, girl)
Hmph, I'm still Melody and I'm still Cool
Melody Cool (Yeah yeah hahaha)
Ow!

They call me Melody Cool (Melody...)
I was here long b4 U (Melody...)
If U're good, I will love ya but I'm nobody's fool (Melody...)
I'm Melody Cool

When I was born, there were tidal waves (Melody...)
Whole town went under, nobody saved (Melody...)
At every funeral it rained every time I sang (Melody...)
Melody Cool
La da da da... (Melody...)
I have been here much longer, longer than U (Melody...)
I'm Melody Cool

Well now, everybody runnin' around talkin' about savin' souls
When they know good and plenty well
They got enough trouble tryin' 2 save their own
(Well, that's alright
Woo-oh (Say it, say it, girl) (C'mon, honey)

Let me give U a piece of some good advice (Melody Cool)
And I do get paid 4 counselin' (Melody Cool)
