Something cool
I'd like to order something cool!

It's so warm here in town
And the heat gets me down
Yes, I'd like something cool!

My! It's nice to simply sit and rest awhile
Now I know that it's a shame
But I can't think of your name
But I remember your smile!

I don't ordinarily drink with strangers
See, I most usually drink alone
But you were so terribly kind to ask me
And I am so awfully far from home.

Like my dress? Well I must confess it's very old
But it's simple and neat
It's just right for the heat
And I save all my furs for the cold!

A cigarette? Well I don't smoke them as a rule
But I'll have one
It could be fun
With something

I'll bet you couldn't imagine
That I one time had a house
With so many rooms I couldn't count them all!
And I'll bet you couldn't imagine
I had fifteen different beaus
They who would beg and beg to take me to a ball.

And I'll bet you couldn't picture me
The time I went to Paris in the fall
And who'd have thought that the man that I loved would be quite so handsome
Quite so tall?

Well that's true
Just a memory I had,
But I almost forgot
Because the weather's so hot!
And I'm feeling so bad
About a date
Oh wait!
I am such a fool!
He's just a guy
Who's stopped to buy
Me something cool!
