I’m ok you’re ok

I’m ok you’re ok
stood by the water cooler
I’m ok you’re not ok
it’s slowly running colder
we’ll do this together
for the rest of our lives
stood by the water cooler
saying alright mate
one hundred times a day
that line is growing older
drop by drop
with nout else to say
stood by the water cooler
