I’m Cool

I originally wrote this as a song, so when I read it I have the inner tune and rhythm along with it. I can’t ‘read it’ as a poem, so I don’t know how it works if you read it without my ‘inner tune’. I’d be interested to know how you read it – as a song or poem. Either way, I hope you enjoy it!

I don’t need no make-up to make me look cool
And I don’t need no fancy clothes to go acting like a fool
I don’t dye my hair or wear fancy jewellery-
What you see is what you get; I’m cool just being me.

I’m cool with what I am, who I am each day,
I’m cool, I like it -I like myself this way.
I’m cool with what I am, who I am each day,
I wouldn’t want to be any other way-
I’m cool.

Daddy always told me ‘Girl use your head’,
‘Use the wits I gave you’ Mama always said:
‘Batting lashes and swinging hips only gets you so far
But an intelligent mind will show people who you are’.

I’m cool with what I am, who I am each day,
I’m cool, I like it – I like myself this way.
I’m cool with what I am, who I am each day,
I wouldn’t want to be any other way-
I’m cool.

If you want to know me don’t look at my clothes-
Listen to my conversation and hear where it goes
I will charm you with my humour and with my mind
Just spend some time with me and see what’s inside.

I’m cool with what I am, who I am each day,
I’m cool, I like it – I like myself this way.
I’m cool with what I am, who I am each day,
I wouldn’t want to be any other way-
I’m cool.
