I was sitting in the cafeteria
Nothing on my mind
A guy comes and sits beside me:
Wearing sunglasses, gel all over his hair,
Good morning dear Miss.
I’m the cool guy
I listen to 50 cent
My car shines
I never skip an event
I got a chalet
A Villa in Faraya
and Ex Miss Lebanon, yeah I’m her brother.Girl:
I pretended to be stupid
I pretended to be dumb
I said nothing
While painting a shy smile on my face
I’m the cool dude at USEK
My eyes are colored
I drink dry vodka
and my chemise’s muslin
Dad’s a colonel
and I smoke cigar
give me your number so I call
to go out someday
Enough, it’s too much to me.
My face went green and smoke went out of my ears.
My face went green and smoke came out of my ears I realized why they say Eve was a snake.
I told him NO WAY! How destiny joined us! My whole life didn’t have a meaning before you came.
But, love of my life and loins of my heart: let us discuss something from the beginning.
A romantic relationship doesn’t exist in my dad’s dictionary
It must be serious to get him to agree.
It’s time to marry
And to bring me a car
And bring some kids
And to call the girl Sara
And to build a swimming pool
And to change the lamp
And to take me to China
And to carve me mango
And to bring furniture
And to bring me before-getting-married wears
And to cut the grass
And to sparkle the glass
And about before-getting-married wears, I really liked!
Come on, when do you want us to get engaged, to show you where’s home?
Put away his glasses
And said: uh, sorry I’m busy and I should go home.
And I stayed alone drinking Nescafé,
Laughing at myself while going to class,
I talked to him with all my love and listened to him!
But he didn’t come through, I swear I dunno why…
The cool guy disappeared!
The one who listens to 50 cent!
Whose car sparkles
And never skips an event!
He’s got a chalet,
A Villa in Faraya
and the Ex Miss lebanon’s ex, yeah he is her brother
the cool guy of USEK, his eyes are colored,
drinks dry vodka and his shirt if made of muslin
his dad is a colonel and smokes cigars and he thought of calling me to go out someday…
