  • She sees them walking in a straight line
    That's not really her style
    And they all got the same heartbeat
    But hers is falling behind
    Nothing in this world could ever bring them down
    Yeah, they're invincible, and she's just in the background
    And she says

    I wish that I could be like the cool kids
    'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in
    I wish that I could be like the cool kids
    Like the cool kids

    He sees them talking with a big smile
    But they haven't got a clue
    Yeah, they're living the good life
    Can't see what he is going through
    They're driving fast cars
    But they don't know where they're going
    In the fast lane, living life without knowing
    And he says

    I wish that I could be like the cool kids
    'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in
    I wish that I could be like the cool kids
    Like the cool kids

    I wish that I could be like the cool kids
    'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to get it
    I wish that I could be like the cool kids
    Like the cool kids

    And they said
    I wish that I could be like the cool kids
    'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in
    I wish that I could be like the cool kids
    Like the cool kids

    I wish that I could be like the cool kids
    'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in
    I wish that I could be like the cool kids
    Like the cool kids

    I wish that I could be like the cool kids
    'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to get it
    I wish that I could be like the cool kids
