Verse 1

Kool Thing sittin' with a kiddie
Now you know you're sure looking pretty
Like a lover not a dancer
Superboy take a little chance here

Chorus

I don't wanna,
I don't think so
I don't wanna,
I don't think so

Verse 2

Kool Thing let me play it with your radio
Move me, turn me on, baby-o
I'll be your slave
Give you a shave

Chorus

I don't wanna,
I don't think so
I don't wanna,
I don't think so

Chuck
Yeah,
Tell'em 'bout it
Hit'em where it hurts
Kim
Hey, Kool Thing, come here
Sit down beside me
There's something I gotta ask you
I just wanna know, what are you gonna do for me?
I mean, are you gonna liberate us girls
From male white corporate oppression?
Chuck
Tell it like it is!
Kim
Huh?
Chuck
Yeah!
Kim
Don't be shy
Chuck
Word up!
Kim
Fear of a female planet?
Chuck
Fear, fear, black, fear, baby!
Kim
I just want to know that we can still be friends
Chuck
Let everybody know
Kim
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on
Kool (kool) thing, kool (kool) thing
When you're a star, I know that you'll fix everything

Kim

Verse 3

Kool Thing sittin' with a kiddie
Now you know you're sure lookin' pretty
Rock the beat just a little faster
Now I know you are the master

Chorus

I don't wanna,
I don't think so
I don't wanna,
I don't think so

Verse 4

Kool thing walkin' like a panther
Come on and give me an answer
Kool thing walkin' like a panther
What'd he say?

Chorus

I don't wanna,
I don't think so
I don't wanna,
I don't think so
