COOLSVILLE

I and Braggar, and Junior Lee,
well that's the way we always thought it would be

Take me, Rickie
Take me, Rickie Lee
Take me to Coolsville
Where we can stick it in.

And if she don't know your name
She knows what you got
From Your matzo balls
To the chicken-in-the-pot
chicken-in-the-pot
chicken-in-the-pot

I wanna meet Chuck E.
Catch you
Down at the Pantages

If this ain't healthy it is some kinda clean

I'll learn all of the lines
I won't stutter when I talk
I want a cool and inspired sorta jazz when I walk

You've found the last chance Texaco

The last chance to trust a man
I threw all the rods
That you gave me

Downstairs at Danny's all-star joint
They got a juke box that goes doyt-doyt

I wanna see those Jills
With their eyes
On a couple bills

The vice is nice, they stay in the back all day
But when the nighttime comes, hey-hey

Take me, Rickie
Take me, Rickie Lee
Take me to Coolsville
Where we can stick it in.

And I swear to God I thought this one was smart enough to
stick it into Coolsville.....yeah stick it into Coolsville...

Don't you think I'm
Smart enough?
Rickie Lee
Don't you think I'm
Smart enough
To stick it in?

stick it into Coolsville.....yeah stick it into Coolsville...

Well, J and B
That's not me
Not even close
(not no more)

But I wanna meet
Braggar, too
And Junior Lee

In the wind-strewn leaves of September, how we met

IN THE WINSTON LIPS OF SEPTEMBER, HOW WE MET

How'd you meet
again
Rickie Lee?
(we can talk about it)

Don't you know
Chuck E's in love, Chuck E's in love
Chuck E's in love, Chuck E's in love ...
Chuck E's in love with me

Tell Chuck E.
Tell Chuck E. for me
Rickie Lee
Tell Chuck E. I'm in love, too
Tell Chuck E. I'm in love . .

. . with the little girl who's singing this song.
