New Mista Cookie Jar song: "Kindness is the Way" World Premiere with Mr. Jeff 2000!

Courtesy of Mr. Jeff 2000, the latest Mista Cookie Jar tune, "Kindness is the Way" drops today on MLK day. Check out the write up here.




“Kindness is the Way”

Mista Cookie Jar returns with a dandy of a vibe, taking it back to the basics of common sense values — caring, friendship and love. In a “soul jambalaya” of jazz, hip hop & Cookie’s signature pop melodies, the tune is lead by the heart as Mista Cookie Jar lyrically dances over walking bass lines, piano licks and a steady jazz shuffle. Through all the music, magic, and mysteries found along the adventures of life — Cookie finds his way with kindness.

Lyrics:

Kindness is the way.
Kindness is the way.
Kindness is the way.

I get a feeling 
tingling all thru my bones. 
A funny, favorite kinda feeling 
as if I’m not alone. 
I’m laughing and I’m dancing 
and I feel like I’m home.
Im feeling dandy. 
Feeling dandy, I…
I get a feeling tingling all thru my bones. 
I gotta share this special feeling
so that I’m not so alone. 
Now you’re laughing and you’re dancing 
and you feel like your home.
You’re feeling dandy. 
Feeling dandy, you… 

You wanna be there 
for a friend in need?
Kindness is the way 
to the heart. 
You wanna show them 
you're a friend, indeed. 
Kindness is the way 
to start. 

And when ya low low low,
don't ya hang your face. 
We're gonna do 
whatever it takes.
To get ya up up up
you bet we'll escalate
each day, everyday. 

My mama said that 
love is family
and that kindness 
be the way to the heart. 
My mama said,
respect your elders, please,
and that kindness is 
the way to start. 

For our love love love to elevate,
we gotta do whatever it takes. 
To the top top top
you bet we'll escalate
each day, everyday.

Call it the circle of life
Just how it works is a mystery. 
But keep on riding that energy
And what ya left with is sweet melodies.
You just gotta stay kind.
That’s the secret to the recipe
Stir it up on top the fire! Oooo!
It’s called a soul jambalaya 
aya-aya-aya…!

I'm talking unity. 
Community. 
Remember a time 
when it used to be so simple ?
Sunshine and dimples
drawn with crayon and pencil. 
Love's a photon to stencil.
Paint a pretty picture. 
Happy Day!
HD photography. 
You're winning
the happiness lottery. Yess!
And when ya feel blessed 
it's so easy to be to kind. 
You'll want to share 
the love within you. 
It's the reason we peace sign. 
That's how we comin'. 
Peace and loving. 
Help and hugging. 
Ain't that something. 
Inspiration out of nothing. 
Keeping kind. 
The number one thing, right?

You want to talk about equality? 
Kindness is the way to start. 
Go put yourself in someone else's feet. 
Kindness is the way to the heart. 

For our
love love love to elevate,
we gotta do whatever it takes. 
To the top top top
you bet we'll escalate
each day, everyday.

Call it the circle of life
Just how it works is a mystery. 
But keep on riding that energy
And what ya left with is sweet melodies
You just gotta stay kind
That’s the secret to the recipe
Stir it up on top the fire! Oooo!
It’s called a soul jambalaya
aya-aya-aya-aya-aya-aya-ow!

Kindness is the way.
Kindness is the way.
Kindness is the way.
