  • 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
