Fountains Of Wayne – Too Cool For School lyrics

He walks alone under the big city lights
He always knows just when the time is right
He never shows what he's thinking he keeps it inside
Because he's too cool for school
He comes alive when the sun goes down
He gets it right you know he's always down
He keeps one eye open and his ear to the ground
And he's too cool for school

He's an operator
He's a real player
And if you mess with him
You know you'll never win
He's an instigator
Enemy eliminator
And when he knocks you better
You better let him in

He's got his own way of getting things done
He's always looking out for number one
Don't try to beat him cause he's already won
And he's too cool for school
