Cool Kids

Lyrics

play She sees them walking in a   line,
play That's not really her  
play And they all got the same  
play But hers is falling   .
play Nothing in this world could
play Ever   them down
play Yeah, they're   ,
play and she's just in the  
play And she says

play I wish that I could be like the cool kids
play 'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in
play I wish that I could be like the cool kids
play Like the cool kids

play He sees them talking with a big  
play But they haven't got a  
play Yeah, they're   the good  
play Can't see what he is going  
play They're   fast cars
play But they don't know where they're going
play In the fast lane, living life without knowing
play And he says

play I wish that I could be like the cool kids
play 'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in
play I wish that I could be like the cool kids
play Like the cool kids

play I wish that I could be like the cool kids
play 'Cause all the cool kids they seem to get it
play I wish that I could be like the cool kids
play Like the cool kids
play And they said

play I wish that I could be like the cool kids
play 'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in
play I wish that I could be like the cool kids
play Like the cool kids

play I wish that I could be like the cool kids
play 'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in
play I wish that I could be like the cool kids
play Like the cool kids

play I wish that I could be like the cool kids
play 'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to get it
play I wish that I could be like the cool kids
play Like the cool kids

meaningMeaning

Sydney Sierota explained the song's meaning to The Sun. "It's about the desire to fit in," she said. "But the message is to accept yourself and that's all it takes to be cool. We see people of all ages coming to our shows, so it's really cool to see that everyone is able to connect on that level and to be able to embrace who they are."

According to the group, listeners often mishear the title as "cookies."
