Heaven
Heaven is a basket case
Confessing in a bright red booth
Yelling at your mom on the phone
Hollow out an elephant's tooth
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool

My face turned into a phone
My belly is a lobster claw
My baby is a red hot iron
More ripe than a president's lung
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool

If you like Art
If you like Art go see him
I'm here instead of God
Half-priced funeral brunch
Twenty-first century boy
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool

I'm a bronco for your love
I'm a little in the middle of love
I'm drowning in my own blood
Digging up my mom's old wig
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool

Hanging
Hanging with the Portuguese
Putting on Superman's gloves
I'm a German living in France
Flying in a basket drool
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool

Making up the bed with you
Keeping up a Batman tool
Running through a field of thumbs
Alligator deaf and dumb
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool

[It's all the rage these days
Matching socks and writhing pythons for pants
Believe me believe me]

I'm climbing
Climbing up a tree for you
Put your neck on my nose
Send me out of the room
Kiss me on the chin someday
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool

You don't have to take me home
I could never fail today
Flattened by a frightful mob
Flipping on the parallel bars
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool
Everybody just be cool

 

EVERYBODY JUST BE COOL
