Bad song lyrics

Bad Song Lyrics: Cool For The Summer

January 26, 2016

Look, I know I did one of these not that long ago, but I’ll level with you: I need to post today to keep up my “every second day” blogging streak I’ve been rocking for January and these are easy to write and don’t require mega thought in terms of photography or illustration.

Yes I had ample time in which to write a proper post, but then I found this video of tigers enjoying a nice bubble bath and it took over my life. A quick browse through all the posts I have in drafts for something that’s 80% finished that could be tidied up at the eleventh hour revealed titles such as “socks”, “glitter” and somewhat more puzzlingly, “death”, but upon closer inspection I would like to give these topics the the true blog-based dedication they deserve. So, Demi Lovato gets the sarcasm stick today.

This song as been piquing my interest for a good six months now. Usually I just sing along at the top of my lungs and have a good time, but today I’m going to inspect it a little closer.

Tell me what you want
What you like
It’s okay
I’m a little curious, too
Ok. Seems easy enough thus far, though we’ve only just dipped our toe in.
Tell me if it’s wrong
If it’s right
I don’t care
I can keep a secret, can you?

I want it and I like it but it’s wrong? What ? It’s a secret? Wait, am I some kind of deviant? People don’t usually discover that about themselves through the medium of song…

Got my mind on your body and your body on my mind
Got a taste for the cherry, I just need to take a bite

Can we get some chocolate sauce up in here? It goes well with cherry. Black forest sexual scenarios are always on my mind (hey, whaddaya know, maybe I am a deviant)
Don’t tell your mother
Um. Ok. Why? Does she hate you?
Kiss one another
Sure.
Die for each other
Holy fucking WHAT bitch?
We’re cool for the summer
(Ha)
We most certainly are not. Why must kissing lead to death? Why? How? Do you have meningitis?
Ooh, ooh
Not helping my general state of alarm…
Take me down into your paradise
Don’t be scared ’cause I’m your body type
I’ll be honest with you, it wasn’t your body type that scared me. It was the threat of imminent death.
Just something that we wanna try
Death? No, that wasn’t on my list of kinky shit for Tuesday, sorry.
‘Cause you and I
We’re cool for the summer

Gradually getting less and less cool as this song goes on and as I back gingerly towards the door making no sudden movements…

Tell me if I won
If I did
What’s my prize?

Life? Not dying? Enjoying a nice theatrical interpretation of Romeo and Juliet without having to act the fucker out?
I just wanna play with you, too
When you say play…
Even if they judge
Fuck it
I’ll do the time
I just wanna have some fun with you

They’re judging? Wait, I thought this was supposed to be a secret? What exactly happened between you and my mother? We never got to the bottom of that…

Got my mind on your body and your body on my mind
Got a taste for the cherry, I just need to take a bite

I think I’m hungry. All I can think about is Cherry Ripe.

Don’t tell your mother
Kiss one another
Die for each other
We’re cool for the summer
(Ha)
Ooh, ooh

Let me reiterate, my mother is not generally against kissing. She’s not terribly fond of death, though. It may just be how I was raised, but I echo these sentiments….

Take me down into your paradise
Don’t be scared ’cause I’m your body type
Just something that we wanna try
‘Cause you and I
We’re cool for the summer
(Ha)
We’re cool for the summer
We’re cool for the summer

I didn’t realise I had a body type preference for the person who wants me dead…

Shh… don’t tell your mother
I’m definitely telling my mother.

Got my mind on your body and your body on my mind
Got a taste for the cherry, I just need to take a bite
I’m really only still here on the off chance you’re hiding a black forest gateau out the back or something… the things I’ll do for cherry based treats… I’m going to be disappointed by the metaphorical nature of this lyric in the end, aren’t I?

(Take me down) Take me down into your paradise
(Don’t be scared)Don’t be scared ’cause I’m your body type
Just something that we wanna try (wanna try)
‘Cause you and I (you and I)
We’re cool for the summer

You know what I want to try? Gateau.

(Take me down) We’re cool for the summer
(Don’t be scared) ‘Cause I’m your body type
Just something that we wanna try
‘Cause you and I (you and I)
We’re cool for the summer
(Ha)
Ooh

I’m just happy you’ve stopped harping on about death. That was a little bit OTT for my tastes, generally. Let’s just get ice creams and cool the fuck down.
We’re cool for the summer
I’ve lived through to the winter. Phew.

  • Well, of course they’re judging. I mean, if you kill people you at some point end up facing a literal judge, right?

  • Demi Lovato has a great voice, but this song makes no sense to me lol. And it’s really that one phrase (Cool for the summer) that throws the whole thing off! I think someone was just dead set (ha. haha) on that title and wouldn’t let it go.

    • I dunno, I was kind of messed around by “die for each other”. Too much too soon, Demi. Cool your jets. XD
