Alternative demo of Cool Cat recorded during the Under Pressure sessions in Montreux in 1981. This has recently been leaked so I've decided to put my copy up on here.

Lyrics (with Bowie's "bum bum bum's" throughout) :

Woooh, yeah
Woooh, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

You've taken all the sunshine away
Making out like you're the main line
And I knew that

You're a cool cat
Tappin' on the toe with a new hat
Woooh just cruisin'
Drivin' along like the swing king, feelin' the beat of my heart

Huh huh, feelin' the beat of my heart
Mmm you're a cool cat
Tappin' on the toe with a new hat
Ooh, you're alright
Hanging out and stealing all the limelight
Messing with the beat of my heart
Messin' with the beat of my heart

Up town, me - never seen the real life (mmm)
Til' you came into my life, came into my life
You used to be a mean kid (mean kid)
Mmm makin' such a deal of life
You used to know that (I used to know that)

Ooh you've been wishin' and hopin' and waiting to really hit the big time
But did it happen, happen, no
You're speeding too fast
Slow down, slow down, you better slow down
Slow down

Hmm you really know how to set the mood (set the mood)
Mmm and you really get inside the groove, yeah

Cuz you're a cool cat
Messing around with a cool child
Ooh just cruisin, drivin' along with a swing king
Feeling the beat of my heart, feeling the beat of my heart

Yeah yeah
Feeling the beat of my heart
I can feel it
Feeling the beat of my heart, yeah
Yeah, feeling the beat of my heart, huh

Yeah, hmm, don't make such a big deal, yeah
Feeling the beat of my heart
Hmm, hmm, woohoo yeah
