PLAY IT COOL
(Ray Campi)

Now when your baby tells you
She don't wanna jump and play
There's just one thing that you can do
To make her see your way
Gotta play it cool, don't you be a fool
You gotta play it cool, like an icicle

Now when you're seen out dancin'
With a chick of another guy
He walks up to you and taps you on the shoulder
You look him right in the eye
But play it cool, don't you be a fool
You gotta play it cool, like an icicle

When the jukebox takes your nickles
And still don't make a sound
There ain't no use to make a fuss
And sit around and frown
But play it cool, don't you be a fool
You gotta play it cool, like an icicle

Now when you're caught out draggin'
With a bet on the baddest "T"
A cop drives up, takes a look at your heap
And says, you come along with me
Better play it cool, don't you be a fool
You gotta play it cool, like an icicle

Well, the draft board hews your age in
Gonna try to stop your fun
You get a letter in the mail marked US Gov
But it ain't no tax refunds
You gotta play it cool, don't you be a fool
You gotta play it cool, like an icicle

Well, you gotta play it, play it mighty cool
Play it, play it mighty cool
Don't you be a silly fool
Play it, play it mighty cool
You gotta play it cool, like an icicle
Cool, mighty cool
Frigid man, frigid
