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

(Melody) (Ow) {repeat}
They call me Melody Cool
was here long b4 U
If U'r good, will love ya
But 'm nobody's fool
'm Melody Cool

When was born, there were tidal waves
Whole town went under - nobody saved
At every funeral it rained
Every time sang
Melody Cool

(Melody) (Ow) {repeat}
La da da da...
have been here much longer, longer than U
'm Melody Cool

Well now, everybody runnin' around
Talkin' about savin' souls
When they know good & plenty well
They got enuff trouble tryin' 2 save their own
(Well, that's alright)
Woo-oh (Say it... girl) (C'mon, honey)
Melody...
Mmm

Every woman & every man
1 day they just got 2 understand
That if we play N the same key
Everything would B Melody Cool, oh

Everybody sing now across the land
Say, "Hey hey hey" (Hey hey hey) {repeat}
Everybody...

(Melody Cool) {repeat sample}
Let me give U a piece of some good advice
& do get paid 4 counselin' - huh
There ain't no big 's & little U's N my life (Ahh)
