When you first meet someone, you do everything in your power to give off that cool vibe. But sometimes you just wanna cut their hair off and save it for your scrapbook. That is NOT playing it cool.


Don’t wanna scare you off, don’t want this to stop
So I try to play it cool, if you knew what I wanna do
My friends say, you’d never stay
And what would be so wrong,
with googling her to fill the lyrics out in our soon to be love song?
They shake their heads, I say ‘look’
What’s wrong with writing every word she says in this little secret notebook?

Don’t give a fuck what they say
I’m gonna snapchat you twenty times a day
I’m coming on strong, so look out

And are you scared? Cause I wanna make a duplicate wig out of your hair
Not for anything wrong, just in case you’re ever gone

Don’t wanna run you off, just wanna turn you on
So I’ll dress up like Rashida Jones
I’ll change the background on your phone to a picture of my cornea
And what could be so bad
With renting puppies so we can roll around with them in bed?
My friends tell me ‘play it cool’
Meanwhile I’m writing out this poem about the first time we played pool

Don’t give a fuck what they say
I’m gonna smother you in every single way
I’m coming on strong, so look out

And are you scared? Cause I wanna make a t-shirt out of your underwear
So I wrote you a song, is that so wrong?
And are you scared? Cause I won’t stop kissing on your forehead
It’s just I’m really into you, it’s hard to play it cool
