Lyrics

Smoke curls from your lungs
The sweat drips off the drums

Hats off to you
You solved the Rubik's Cube
Turning the orange
Into yellow into blue

Blue like jazz, blue like jazz
Show me how to be cool like that
Blue like jazz, blue like jazz
Show me how to be cool like that

Don’t mind me; I'm a little slow
I can't play sixteenth notes

My mother’s boy
Learning his IOUs
Don't have the huevos
To attain goals like you do

Blue like jazz, blue like jazz
Show me how to be cool like that
Bluе like jazz, blue like jazz
Show mе how to be cool like that

My face is red, your bill is due
I see your soul and it's black
And it's black and it's blue

Blue like jazz, blue like jazz
Show me how to be cool like that
Blue like jazz, blue like jazz
Show me how to be cool like that

Show me how to be cool like that

Smoke curls from your fire
Paint besmears your face

Pray to your gods
Sing them your solstice song
Nothing will happen
'Cause you don't know how to make it

Blue like jazz, blue like jazz
Alice Liddell looking through the glass
Blue like jazz, blue like jazz
Spooky grin on a Cheshire cat

Come here, sit by my side
This Lord will provide

I know the charms
And I know the secret runes
Everything happens
'Cause I do know how to make it

Blue like jazz, blue like jazz
Alice Liddell looking through the glass
Blue like jazz, blue like jazz
Spooky grin on a Cheshire cat
