You know it really doesn’t matter
Doesn’t matter at all
What other people think of you
You should be standing up tall

Don’t let ‘em break your heart
Just ‘cause you’re far too smart
No need to conform
Rules are made to be broken

And I like singing in the shower
Playing video games with my friends
I do not have to be like them to be cool, be cool, be cool

And one day I will spend an hour
Making love in my Mercedes-Benz
I do not have to be like them to be cool, be cool, be cool….

And in case of an emergency
You can break out this song
’Cause music kept me breathing
So now I pass it along

You’ll see the brightest light
After the darkest night
Hang on in there, love
I am with you ‘till the morning

And I like singing in the shower
Playing video games with my friends
I do not have to be like them to be cool, be cool, be cool

And one day I will spend an hour
Making love in my Mercedes-Benz
I do not have to be like them to be cool, be cool, be cool….

Baby, I know it’s kinda hard
Ooh, I’ve been right where you are
There was no one to save me
It’s ok to be yourself
You can’t be nobody else
Look at me;
I was made in the Eighties
I was made in the Eighties, ooh yeah!

And I like singing in the shower
Playing video games with my friends
I do not have to be like them to be cool, be cool, be cool

And one day I will spend an hour
Making love in my Mercedes-Benz
I do not have to be like them to be cool, be cool, be cool….
