Race That Train - Cool

the sun gets a little kinder at about six o'clock
so pick up your pole and that old tackle box
package liquor, a six pack and a one hitter
who gives a damn what you catch

when its cool, cool
cool by the water
mosquitoes don't bite me
they don't like me
it's something to do with my skin
it's cool, cool
cool by the water
i wish twilight would last forever
so tonight would never
begin

last night somebody's son
got a little hot headed with a gun
and killed my neighbor's boy
he was caught in the wrong place
at the right time
interrupting the course of a crime

now he's cool, cool
cool by the water
the river will take him
to st peter's gate and wash him
of his sins
yeah, he's cool, cool
cool by the water
now twilight will last forever
and tonight will never begin

the sun gets a little kinder about six o'clock
so pick up you pole and that old tackle box
package liquor, a six pack and a one hitter
you never know what you'll catch
