Something cool
I'd like to order something cool
It's so warm here in town
And this heat gets me down
And I'd like something cool

My, it's nice, just to sit down and rest awhile
Hey, you know it's a shame
But I can't think of your name
But I remember your smile
Well, I don't ordinarily drink
With strangers

I guess I usually just, just drink alone
But you were so nice to ask me
And I'm so terribly far from home
Like my dress, well, I must confess
It's very old

Hey, but it's simple and neat
And it's just right for this heat
Hey, I will save my furs for the cold
A cigarette, no I don't smoke them as a rule
But, I'll have one, it might be fun with something

I'll bet you wouldn't imagine
But I once had a house with so many rooms
I couldn't count them all
Yeah, I know you wouldn't imagine
But I had fifteen different guys

Who would beg and beg to take me to a ball
And I know you wouldn't picture me
The time I went to Paris in the fall
Oh who would think the guy I loved
Was quite so handsome and quite so tall

Well, it's through, it's through
That was just a memory I had
One I guess I almost forgot
Oh, 'cause the weather's so hot

And I'm feeling so bad about a date
Oh wait, I'm such a fool
He's just a guy who stopped to buy me
Something cool
