I always live by the, golden rule
Whatever happens, ha, don't blow your cool
You gotta have nerves of steel
And never show folks how you, honestly feel

I lived all my life this way, ha
For example, take yesterday

I breeze home happy bringin' her my pay
Her note read, so long savvy, I haven't gone away
An' I threw myself down across our empty bed
An' this is what I said

Ooo shhhhiiiii ooow ooow ooow
What? Oh what are you gonna do with me?
Ooo wow uh
But I was cool

So I, one for the roaded, at a all night bar
I wound up so loaded, I tore up my car
The judge threw the book at me
An' when I read, the sentence there, I said

Oow! Please oooow ooow, please I got to know, I got to know
What? what went wrong?
I don't underst, I oh a
But I was cool

So I said she's the only one, that I have to pay
And I found her an' pulled my gun, an' fired point blank
The shot whistled right past that woman's head
An' I killed my hound dog, dead

Oooooow, ruff ruff, rrr, rrr, rrr, rur, rur, rur
As they carried me away
I was overheard to say
Be cool, be cool, stay cool, be cool
