my lyricsbox
I've seen a many bridges in my time and crossed every one of 'em
With no trouble at all (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
I had trials and tribulations, heartaches and pains
(Well, that's alright)
Survived 'em all baby (Uh-huh, say it, say it!)
I'm still Melody and I'm still Cool (Melody Cool)

They call me Melody Cool {"Melody" repeats thru in BG}
I was here long before U
If U're good I will love ya, but I'm nobody's fool
I'm Melody Cool

When I was born, there were tidal waves
Whole town went under, nobody saved
At every funeral it rained every time I sang Melody Cool

I have been here much longer, longer than U
I'm Melody Cool

Well now, everybody runnin' 'round talkin' 'bout saving souls
When they know good and plenty well
They got enough trouble tryin' 2 save their own
(Ah, that's alright) (Say it, say it)

Go on, go on
Every woman and every man
One day they just got 2 understand
That if we play in the same key everything will be Melody Cool

(What's your name?)

New power, wave your hand
Everybody sing out across the land
I said "Hey, hey, hey" (Hey, hey, hey)
Say "Hey, hey, hey" (Hey, hey, hey)
Everybody say "Hey, hey, hey" (Hey, hey, hey)
They call me Melody Cool

Looka here young'n
Let me give U a piece of good advice
And I do get paid for counseling
It ain't no BIG I's and little U's in my life
So that's why U see

They call me Melody Cool (Melody Cool)
I was here long before U (Long before U)
If U're good I will love U, but I'm nobody's fool
I'm Melody Cool

(Melody Cool) {"Melody Cool" repeats to fade}
(Long before U)
This song is from the album "Grafitti Bridge".
