lyrics

I'm smoother than Play-Doh
I'm harder than hard boiled sweets
I've got my own style that
Was taken from films that I've seen
My friends always tell me
That no-one looks badder than me
But I'm not just a pretty face
I've also got a sexy physique

I'm dashing like Elvis
But he hasn't got my mystique
I wish I'd met James Dean
'Cause I think he'd like to be me
I'm just so enigmatic
Without even having to speak

But the feeling never goes
That maybe everybody knows

That I'm faking Cool. I'm faking cool
I'm faking cool, faking cool

I'm hot on guitar and
I don't really know any chords
The girls always tell me
That I could win poser awards
I only wear leather
And sunglasses when I'm indoors
I'm as slick as I can be
A rebel without any flaws

But for everything I've said
Now all that's going through my head

Is I'm faking Cool. I'm faking cool
I'm faking cool, faking cool

And It feels so hard
To drop the facade
When your back's against the wall
And I'm petrified that
When I strip it all back
I'll be left with nothing at all

But I'll never let it show
I can't let anybody know

That I'm faking Cool. I'm faking cool

And the truth will never spread
Because I'll never have it said

That I'm faking Cool. I'm faking cool
I'm faking, faking cool
