If there's one rule to this game
Everybody's gonna name, it's, be cool
If you're worried or uncertain
If your feelings are hurtin', you're a fool if you can't keep cool

Charm 'em, don't alarm 'em
Keep things light, keep your worries out of sight
Play it cool, play it cool
Fifty-fifty, fire and ice

If your heart is on the floor
'Cause you've just seen your lover
Comin' through the door with a new fool
Be cool

Don't you sweat it
Start writing right now
I'm trying to forget it
Be cool

Don't get riled, smile, keep it light
Be your own best friend tonight
And play it cool, play it cool
Fifty-fifty, fire and ice

Don't get jealous, don't get overzealous
Keep your cool
Don't whine, kiss of that flaky Valentine
You're nobody's fool

Be cool fool
Be cool

Lots of other fish
In the sea

Play it cool, play it cool
Fifty-fifty, fire and ice

So if there's one rule to this game
Everybody's gonna name, it's be cool
If you're worried or uncertain
If your feelings are hurtin', you're a fool if you can't keep cool

They want you to charm 'em, don't alarm 'em
Keep things light, keep your worries out of sight
And play it cool, play it cool
Fifty-fifty, fire and ice
