  • Everybody's saying silly things
    Without knowing that life brings a change
    And I've been checking all the signs
    My friends say I'm love sick 'cause I
    All I keep thinking about is her in my arms
    (Got to see what love is all about)
    And I won't be the same until she is mine
    And my friends keep telling me to

    Cool it now
    You got to cool it now
    Oh watch out
    You're gonna loose control
    Cool it now
    You got to slow it down
    Slow it down
    You're gonna fall in love

    Everyday I walk her home from school
    And she tells me how she really feels
    And there's no doubt in my mind
    That this girl is one of a kind
    'Cause all I keep thinking about is her in my arms
    (Got to see what love is about)
    And I won't feel the same until she is mine
    But my friends keep telling me to

    Cool it now
    You got to cool it now
    Oh watch out
    You're gonna lose control
    Cool it now
    You better slow it down
    Slow it down
    You're gonna fall in love

    Cool it now
    You got to cool it now
    Oh watch out
    You're gonna lose control
    Cool it now
    You got to slow it down
    Slow it down...
    You're gonna fall in love

    All I keep thinking about is her in my arms
    (Got to see what love is all about)
    And I'll never be the same until you are mine
    And my friends keep telling me..

    When ya got a girl who takes her time
    You must slow the pace you can't mess with her mind
    If she feels the same she'll letcha know
    Just prepare yourself or be ready to go
    And I hope this message stays in your mind
    Cause you almost lost a girl who is right on time
    There's one more thing that ya got to know
    Just cool it down and stay in control

    Cool it now
    You got to cool it now
    Oh watch out
    You're gonna lose control
    Cool it now
    You got to slow it down
    Slow it down
    You're gonna fall in love baby

    All I keep thinking about is her in my arms
    (Got to see what love is all about)
    And I'll never be the same until you are mine, oh
    Listen to me let me tell you

    Why you all coming down on me
    Tryin' to tell me how my life is supposed to be
    I know you're only trying to help me out
    Tryin' to show me what life is really about
    But this time I'm gonna make it on my own
    So why dontcha fellaz just leave me alone
    Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky and Mike
    If I like the girl who cares who you like

    Cool It Now
    Oh watch out, out, out, out
    Cool It Now
    Slow it down, down, down, down
    Cool It Now
    Oh watch out, out, out, out
    Cool It Now
    Slow it down, down, down, down

    Cool it now
    Oh watch out
    'Cause you're gonna lose control
    Cool it now
    You got to slow it down
    Slow it down
    You're gonna fall in love

    Cool it now
    Slow it down
    You're gonna lose control

    Cool it now
    You got to slow it down
    Slow it down.
    'Cause you're gonna fall in love

    Cool it now
    Slow it down
    'Cause you're gonna lose control

    Cool it now
    You got to slow it down
    Slow it down

    Cool it now
    Ooh watch out
    Cool it now
