Cool The Engines
Tom Scholz/Fran Sheehan/Brian Delp
Now I like takin' off.
Don't like burnin' out.
Every time you turn it on
Makes me want to shout.
We keep gettin' hotter.
Moving' way too fast.
If we don't slow this fire down
We're not gonna last.

Cool the engines
Red line's gettin' near.
Cool the engines
Better take it out of gear.

I'm no fool -- I'm gonna keep it cool
And take it day by day.
We won't know where we might go
Until we make it all the way.

Take me for a ride.
Take me all the way.
Take me where I've never been
Someplace I can stay.
Don't get yourself too hot.
Don't get yourself too high.
If we don't take it easy now
We can kiss it all goodbye.

Cool the engines
Slow this rocket down.
Cool the engines

Why don't ya take a look around.

I'm no fool -- gonna keep it cool
Take it day by day.
We won't know where we might go
'Til we make it all the way.

Cool the engines
Cool the engines
Goin' over the line
Goin' off the dial
Runnin' out of time
And it's gettin' wild

Got flashin' lights
Goin' 'round and 'round
Until we get it right
Better cool it down
Better cool it down

Cool the engines

And now we're on our way.
No need to hurry
Just to get from day to day.
And I oooh, oooh I know
We don't have to run that hard
To get where we can go.

Cool the engines
Cool the engines down
Cool the engines
Cool the engines down
