  • I and Braggar, and Junior Lee,
    Well that's the way we always thought it would be
    In the wind-strewn leaves of September, how we met
    Decked out like aces, we'd beat anybody's bet

    'Cause we was Coolsville
    'Cause we was Coolsville

    Well you stick it here;
    You stick it over there;
    But it never fits

    And now a hungry night you want more and more
    And you chip in your little kiss.
    Well, I jumped all his jokers,
    But he trumped all my tricks

    And I swear to God I thought this one was smart enough to
    Stick it into Coolsville
    Yeah stick it into Coolsville

    So now it's J and be, and me, and that sounds close,
    But it ain't the same (well, that's okay)
    Hot City don't hurt that much but everything feels the same
    Well the real thing come and the real thing go
    Well the real thing is back in town
    Ask me if you want to know The way to Coolsville.
    (Well I hear you want to go back to Coolsville
    Well come on honey, take you back to Coolsville) Writer/s: Rickie Lee Jones
