I've been posing down the pub
On seeing my reflection
I'm looking slightly rough
I fancy this, I fancy that
I want to be so flash
I give a little muscle
I spend a little cash
But all I get is bitter and a nasty little rash
And by the time I'm sober
I've forgotten what I had
And everybody tells me that it's cool to be a cat
It's cool for cats."

Cool for Tropes
- Age Progression Song: "Up The Junction", the baby is created, born and learns to walk.
- All Drummers Are Animals: Gilson Lavis had this said about him prior to sobriety
- Artistic License: Referencing the otherwise unrelated William Tell and Maid Marian in "Pulling Mussels (From the Shell)"
- Creator Backlash: "853-5937" Glenn Tilbrook is not a big fan of this song.
- A Date with Rosie Palms: The opening line of "Touching Me Touching You""I’m always touching myself"
- Homage: to The Sweeney in Cool For Cats
- Intercourse with You: Many Squeeze songs fit into this category with "Loving You Tonight" being very blunt:"Sometimes I can't see the trees for the wood
But loving you tonight feels good"
- Market-Based Title: The band's first Self-Titled Album was dubbed U.K. Squeeze in America due to a band named Tight Squeeze already existing.
- Not Staying for Breakfast: "Goodbye Girl"
- Obligatory Bondage Song: "Sex Master"
- "Hard to Find" - the singer tells how he ties his girlfriend up, but then passes out drunk.
- Ode to Intoxication: "Slightly Drunk"
- The One That Got Away: "Up the Junction", after marriage and parenthood.
- Revolving Door Band: Those that aren't Difford or Tilbrook tend to change, although Gilson and Jools both came back post break up
- Sequel Song: "Vicky Verky" to "Up the Junction" and possibly "Labelled with Love"
- Shout-Out: "Pulling Mussels (From the Shell)" mentions "A Harold Robbins paperback"
- Step Up to the Microphone: Difford on "Love Circles" and "Cool for Cats". Keyboardist (and later vocalist for Mike + the Mechanics) Paul Carrack on "Tempted."
- Teen Pregnancy: "Vicky Verky", which notably averts Good Girls Avoid Abortion.
- Visual Pun: In the logo on the front cover of East Side Story, the second "e" in "Squeeze" is printed much smaller than the rest of the word - thus, the middle of their name is being "squeezed".
