  • Here I sit, a nobody with no one
    Bein' me ain't really all that fun
    Leavin' her wasn't very smart
    Admittin' I was wrong would be so hard

    If it was cool to be a fool
    I'd be the hippest guy around
    If a heartache made you famous
    I'd be know from town to town
    It tears were made of pennies
    And cold beer brought her back
    My bank account and self esteem would both be in the black
    If some Hollywood producer made a movie that was sad
    About some guy who lost the best thing he ever had
    Hey, I could be a star
    If it was cool to be a fool

    But we all know the way it really is
    You don't get recognized for doing things like this
    You spend a lot of time feelin' sorry for yourself
    It doesn't really mean that much to anybody else

    If it was cool to be a fool
    I'd be the hippest guy around
    If a heartache made you famous
    I'd be know from town to town
    It tears were made of pennies
    And cold beer brought her back
    My bank account and self esteem would both be in the black
    If some Hollywood producer made a movie that was sad
    About some guy who lost the best thing he ever had
    Hey, I could be a star
    If it was cool to be a fool
    Hey, I could be a star
    If it was cool to be a fool Writer/s: DEAN STEVEN, JOE NICHOLS, WIL NANCE
