Cool Under Heat

Album: Cut The Crap (1985)
  • Rebels on the corner
    Rebels to the core
    Got a million dollar question
    What is livin' for?

    Hey! Man can scratch a livin'
    In a fat man's city class
    The teacher is survival
    But soon the present will be the past

    So!
    Be cool under heat
    Be cool under heat
    Be cool on the street
    Be cool under heat

    When you're rockin' down
    On a cold hard night
    Pitiless eyes of the cityless souls
    Narrow in the lights

    Sorrow upon sorrow
    Go ganging up in your head
    You can leave it till tomorrow
    If you can balance on the edge

    Hey!
    Be cool under heat
    Be cool under heat
    Be cool on the street
    Be cool under heat

    When the baby and you got to fight
    Go cool your love in the rain
    When the match refuses to strike
    Show that you really are in pain

    I'm giving you a warning
    Gonna burn those blue suede shoes
    Swagger in the mornin'
    Prints up front page news

    Be cool under heat
    Be cool under heat
    Be cool on the street
    Be cool under heatWriter/s: BERNARD RHODES, JOE STRUMMER
