Cool city Lyrics

Cool city by Oingo Boingo  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



Cool city Icy steel shooting through concrete, cool city

Mountains of glass reflect the sky

Everybody feels real good in cool city

Each day brings a new surprise

Johnny came two-thousand miles to the cool city

He came to see what makes things tick

He cut his hair and bought new clothes in the cool city

Finally found his life's ambition


How to do nothing perfectly

To do it with style so gracefully

'Cause life is so delicious in Cool City


Outside no one's on the street

Don't stop or you'll miss a beat


Someone's standing in a doorway -- cool city

You open the door and check him out so casually

The music's blasting all night long in cool city

They recognize his face, so it's all right

This one knew the right address

He even knew someone in a band

While the others wait all night standing there in

Cool city


So hard to make the right friends

You might have to sell some skin

The nights go on forever


The blacks they all hate the whites

The whites think they're tough, but they're not, cool city

The boys go out with each other

The girls who will be in movies


If you're high, you're in the right place, cool city

Animals seek out their own kind

Shake some hands and take a lunch in cool city

Someone's going to try and tempt you

Listen to all the brilliant plans in the cool city

It's all free now, but you'll pay later with your soul

Pray to the the objects on the wall

That you'll stay young and never grow old

So come on, the water's fine

Have a drink, snort a line

'Cause the nights get very chilly here in cool city
