Verse 2:
--------

(Same chords as verse 1)


If your heart is on the floor
Cause you've just seen your lover
Comin' through the door with a new fool--
Be cool
Don't get riled
Smile-keep it light
Be your own best friend tonight
And play it cool
Play it cool
Fifty-fifty
Fire and ice

Keep your cool

Don't whine,              kiss off that flaky valentine

You're nobody's fool


777777  7799xx  7777xx  7799xx  7777xx

Play it cool, play it cool,     fifty-fifty fire and ice



Verse 3:
--------

So if there's one rule to this game
Everybody's gonna name
It's--be cool
If you're worried or uncertain
If your feelings are hurtin'
You're a fool if you can't keep cool
They want you to
Charm 'em
Don't alarm 'em
Keep things light
Keep your worries out of sight
And play it cool
Play it cool
Fifty-fifty
Fire and ice

(Repeat intro riff)
