Lyrics:
Friend, friend ?? we’re at it again
Blastin off for Timbuktu
I said it before, I say it again
We learned to be cool from you

Hey lady, in the Mermaid Cafe
Bathed in a spotlight of blue
Singing those Sarah Vaughan songs until dawn
We learned to be cool from you.

Maybe I can parle a little Francais
Maybe I can even write a whole page a day
Do a crossword puzzle in a minute or two
But I learned to be cool from you.

Hey Mr Mustache, look what we’ve done
lived longer than we thought we could do
Through all of the games and all of our fame
We learned to stay cool from you
Hey there, Leonard and Willie on the stage
Still singing your songs pure and true
Who would have thought that time could be bought
We learned to stay cool from you

Maybe I can parle a little Francais
Maybe I can even write a whole page a day
Do a crossword puzzle in a minute or two
But I learned to be cool from you.

You said it’s more about music and less about fame
You taught us it’s ok to play without shame
It’s more about life than the right thing to do
Hang on to the hullabaloo.

Hey Captain Walter, starin’ for the stars
Always knowing that your vision was true
It was your sign-off note that kept us afloat
We learned to be cool from you.

Maybe I can parle beaucoup Francais
Maybe I can still write a whole page a day
Do a crossword puzzle in a second or two
But I learned to be cool from you.
I learned to be cool from you.
