Went to a dance last Saturday night
I was feeling tipsy, the mood was right
Sight a little daughter steppin' out the corner
'Cause I feel like dancing all night

But I told her:
Cool down the space for me little woman
You're coming in to fast for me
Cool down the space for me little woman
That's not how it should be

I told her to try
I dunno why
She keep on trying be she can't
And so she do it how she want

And so I told her:
Cool down the sspace for me little woman
You're coming in to fast for me
Cool down the space for me little woman
That's not how it should be

And I told her: Cool down, cool down
I told her: Cool down, cool down

Went to a dance last Saturday night
I was feeling tipsy, the mood was right
Sight a little daughter steppin' out the corner
'Cause I feel like dancing all night

And so I told her:
Cool down the space for me little woman
You're coming in to fast for me
Cool down the space for me little woman
That's not how it should be

She said she would try
She just dunno why
She keep on trying be she can't
And so she do it how she want

And so I told her:
Cool down the space for me little woman
You're coming in to fast for me
Cool down the space for me little woman
That's not how it should be

And I told her: Cool down, cool down
I told her: Cool down, cool down
Cool down, cool down

She said she would try
I dunno why
She keep on trying be she can't
And so she do it how she want

But I told her:
Cool down the space for me little woman
You're coming in to fast for me
Cool down the space for me little woman
That's not how it should be

Cool down the space for me little woman
You're coming in to fast for me
Cool down the space for me little woman
That's not how it should be
