"Music is Everywhere" World Premiere on Kids Can Groove

Today, the 12th and penultimate Mista Cookie Jar & the Chocolate Chips single-a-month release, “Music is Everywhere,” premieres on Kids Can Groove!

“[Mista Cookie Jar’s] arrangement is a perfect complement to the song's message which celebrates the power of music and the innate connection we have to it; The notion that music exists within us and all around us, whether it's in a poetic verse, your child's laughter, an ocean breeze, or that one perfect note.”

Lyrics: 

Everywhere, music is everywhere!

Music puts the magic in this life.
You can build a castle in the sky. 
Close your eyes and you shall see. 
It's so simple as a melody. 
Music puts the magic in this life.

In this life 
music surrounds you
You just got to open up your ears
like the hounds do. 
Listen around you. 
Music! It's everywhere 
and for everyone. 
Magic, when it happens,
Starts out with a little fun. 
It's in that "haha!" moment. 
When u stumble upon a note 
and its an "aha!" moment. 
Aha!!
Don't need no law degree 
or musicology degree
to understand the beauty 
in the rules of harmony. 
Ya follow me?

Music puts the magic in this life.
You can build a castle in the sky. 
Close your eyes and you shall see. 
It's so simple as a melody. 
Music puts the magic in this life.

Music touches lives.
Ya better believe me when I say dat
It keep it sweet like chocolate chips 
and butterscotch haystacks.
So when ur down and out,
music flips your frown around. 
You can YouTube your favorite tune 
and you'll be bouncin’ around. 
See, something huge it 
grabs a hold of you. 
The music is in motion. 
I'm not trying to sound dramatic
But it's kinda like an ocean
flowing in you. Call it magic.
Yeah, I'm talking Harry Potter. 
It's that ever lasting feeling 
from ya very first concert!

Music's the glow
In your best friend’s eyes. 
Poetry flowin' across the universe 
throughout space & time. U kno!
The spirit of many 
from many-a-thousand years. 
So many-a-story 
passed in melody. 
Sad and joyful tears. 
So open up and live in the moment. 
Take a chance when u dance
and just own it. 
Just got to focus on one perfect note. 

Music, music.
Music, music.
Music, music.
Music, music.

Everywhere. 
Music in the earth and sky.
It’s anywhere.
Music to the milky stars.
It’s everywhere.
Music is the one thing that can take you there.
Music is everywhere.

Music puts the magic in this life.
You can build a castle in the sky. 
Close your eyes and you shall see. 
It's so simple as a melody. 
Music puts the magic in this life.
