"Cool" is a song that is featured in the 2021 live-action feature film, West Side Story. After Riff (Mike Faist) buys a handgun, Tony (Ansel Elgort) sees it and takes it away from him. The dance number that follows is centered on him trying to keep the weapon away from the other Jets.

Lyrics

Tony:
Boy, boy, crazy boy
Get cool, boy!

Got a rocket in your pocket?
Keep coolly cool, boy!

Don't get hot
'Cause man, you've got
Some high times ahead

Take it slow and, Daddy-o
You can live it up and die in bed!

Boy, boy, crazy boy
Stay loose, boy!
Breeze it, buzz it, easy does it
Turn off the juice, boy!

Go man, go
But not like a yo-yo school boy
Just play it cool, boy
Real cool!

Ice:
Cool!

Tiger:
Go!

Numbers:
Crazy!

Ice:
Cool!

Tiger:
Go!

Numbers:
Crazy!

Ice, Tiger and Numbers:
Go!

Riff:
Boy, boy, crazy boy
Stay loose, boy!
Breeze it, buzz it, easy does it
Turn off the juice, boy!

Just play it cool, boy
Real cool
