"Red Dress" as written by and Miranda Eleanor De Fonbrune/higgins Cooper....
Cooler than the red dress
'cause I'm cooler
'cause I'm cooler
'cause I'm cooler than the red dress
'cause I'm cooler
'cause I'm cooler

Using subtle diploma
To get what she wants
Can't say that it's wrong
No baby
A man's not a boy can't you see
We're pulling the strings
We're taking the lead

And when you're sure
You'll never let him play you again
She'll put on your favorite smile
And plug the cord
And get you in your dirty dance
Her hips will send you into a trance

'cause I'm cooler than the red dress
I'd rather catch a guy on my own
(Give me credit)
'cause what you see the man gets
(Don't forget it)
And if he don't I'm better off here alone
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Don't need candlelight to make you stay over
I'm giving it up now, baby
If that's what I gotta do just to own you
I'm giving it up now maybe
(To you)

I've played the desperate lady
Jumped through all of the hoops boy
Instead of constant craving
I leave the chasing to you
And if you don't respect it
Ill pick up my Jimmy Choos
'cause boy if you don't love me
Then I've got nothing to lose

'cause I've been down this roads before
I should have known that I was to blame
Won't put on your
Favorite smile
Won't plug the cord to get you to your dirty dance
That's not the way I get my demands

'cause I'm cooler than the red dress
I'd rather catch a guy on my own
'cause what you see the man gets
And if he don't I'm better off here alone

(Save your kisses)
'cause I'm cooler than the red dress
(Do you get it)
I'd rather catch a guy on my own
(Give me credit)
'cause what you see the man gets
(Don't forget it)
And if he don't I'm better off here alone
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Don't need candlelight to make you stay over
I'm giving it up now baby
If that's what I gotta do just to own you
I'm giving it up now baby
Don't need candlelight to make you stay over
(Right now)
I'm giving it up now baby
If that's what I gotta do just to own you
(Own you, own you baby)
I'm giving it up now maybe

Said don't call me baby
(Cooler than the red dress)
Said don't call me baby
(Cooler than the red dress)

    General Commentreally hate this song-but the lyrics have been annoying the hell out of me-why is she 'cooler than the red dress'? does it mean she doesnt need fancy clothes to get a guy?

    General Commentits about how she doesnt need sexy clothes or dirty danceing to get a guy, cuz shes done that before and doesnt like the types of guys it attracts.
    She'd rather be herself and if the guy doesnt want it then shes better off without him

    General CommentHere are the correct lyrics :)

    Cooler than the red dress
    Cos I'm cooler
    Cos I'm cooler
    Cos I'm cooler than the red dress
    Cos I'm cooler
    Cos I'm cooler

    a girls entitled to flaunt
    To get what she wants
    Can't say that it's wrong
    No baby
    A man's not a boy can't you see
    We're pulling the strings
    We're taking the lead

    And when you're sure
    You'll never let him play you again
    She'll put on your favourite smile
    unplug the phone to get you alone
    dirty dance
    Her hips will send you into a trance

    Cos I'm cooler than the red dress
    I'd rather catch a guy on my own
    (Give me credit)
    'Cos what you see the man gets
    (Don't forget it)
    And if he don't I'm better off here alone
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    dont need candlelight to make you stay over
    I'm giving it up now, baby
    If that's what I gotta do just to own you
    I'm giving it up now maybe

    To you
    I've played the desperate lady
    Jumped through all of the hoops boy
    Instead of constant craving
    I leave the chasing to you
    And if you don't respect it
    Ill kick with my Jimmy Choos
    Cos boy if you don't love me
    Then I've got nothing to lose

    Cos I've been down this road before
    I should have known that I was to blame
    Won't put on your
    Favourite smile
    unplug the phone to get you alone
    dirty dance
    That's not the way i get my romance

    Cos I'm cooler than the red dress
    I'd rather catch a guy on my own
    Cos what you see the man gets
    And if he don't I'm better off here alone

    (Save your kisses)
    Cos I'm cooler than the red dress
    (Do you get it)
    I'd rather catch a guy on my own
    (Give me credit)
    Cos what you see the man gets
    (Don't forget it)
    And if he don't I'm better off here alone
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    dont need candlelight to make you stay over
    I'm giving it up now baby
    If that's what I gotta do just to own you
    I'm giving it up now maybe
    Dont need candlelight to make you stay over
    I'm giving it up now baby
    If that's what I gotta do just to own you
    (Own you, own you baby)
    I'm giving it up now maybe

    So don't call me baby
    (Cooler than the red dress)
    So don't call me baby
    (Cooler than the red dress)

    General Commenthahahaha!!!
    Until reading the lyrics right now, I though it went:
    "Cos I role up in the red dress
    I'd rather get to god on my own"
    instead of:
    "Cos I'm cooler than the red dress
    I'd rather get a guy on my own"

    So funny when that happens. Bad though when you start singing it and everyone teases you. Has anyone else heard them wrong like that?

    General CommentLol, mel_possum7. I thought it was 'I'd rather Get To God on My Own' aswell.

    General CommentI always assumed it was about someone trying to attract a guy by being herself, and showing another materialistic, dressed up girl that she's the cooler one because she's acting herself
