Lyrics COOL JERK,
COOL JERK,
WE KNOW A CAT
WHO CAN REALLY DO
THE COOL JERK,
WE KNOW A CAT
WHO CAN REALLY DO
THE COOL JERK.
WELL,
THIS CAT
THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT
I WONDER
WHO COULD IT BE
'CAUSE I KNOW
THAT I'M THE HEAVIEST CAT,
THE HEAVIEST CAT
YOU EVER DID SEE.

WHEN YOU SEE ME
WALKING DOWN THE STREET
NONE OF THE FELLOWS
WANT TO SPEAK,
ON THEIR FACES
THEY WEAR A SILLY SMIRK,
'CAUSE THEY KNOW
I'M THE KING
OF THE COOL JERK.

[spoken:]
HA, LOOK AT THOSE GUYS
LOOKING AT ME
LIKE I'M A FOOL,
BUT DEEP DOWN INSIDE
THEY KNOW I'M COOL.
BUT NOW THE MOMENT OF TRUTH
HAS FINALLY COME
WHEN I'M GONNA SHOW YOU
SOME OF THAT COOL JERK.
NOW GIVE ME A LITTLE BASS
WITH THOSE EIGHTY-EIGHTS,
AH, YOU'RE COOKING,
UH, YOU'RE SMOKING,
NOW I WANNA HEAR EVERYBODY,
AH...

CAN YOU DO IT
CAN YOU DO IT
CAN YOU DO IT
CAN YOU DO IT
CAN YOU DO IT
CAN YOU DO IT
CAN YOU DO
THE COOL JERK!
COME ON, PEOPLE,
COOL JERK.
HEY! HEY!

WHEN YOU SEE ME
WALKING DOWN THE STREET
ALL THE FELLOWS
WANT TO SPEAK,
ON THEIR FACES
THEY DON'T WEAR
THAT SILLY SMIRK,
'CAUSE THEY KNOW
I'M THE KING
OF THE COOL JERK.

[fade:]
COOL JERK.
COME ON, PEOPLE,
COOL JERK,
YOU CAN DO IT.
COOL JERK.
COME ON, PEOPLE,
COOL JERK,
YOU CAN DO IT.
