about

Multi-instrumentalist, wordsmith and audio auteur, Mista Cookie Jar, and his rebel-rocking family band, The Chocolate Chips, have created a childhood inspired, 3-song collection for families. In a dreamy blend of classical, roots music, and urban flavors unique to Mista Cookie Jar, these songs seamlessly infuse lyrical menageries of storytelling, hip hop, and folk. "My My My" starts it out in a motown-swing bang, Mista Cookie Jar's personal and nostalgic homage to his step-kids and growing up. "Be a Little Angel" is a harp-laced, 50's pop-tinged, rap-ballad celebrating in a lyrical waltz the tiny treasures found in innocence and youth. In closing is "Prairie Boy," a simple day-in-the-life tale of a boy in nature set to harmonica and Mista Cookie Jar's signature "stars & moon" resonator. In a sweep of saxophones, chimes, strings, banjos, and the rhymes & harmonies of 13 year-old Ava Flava, "3's a Charm" is a collection of meticulously crafted visions that urge the listener to give in to the imagination and stay forever young. 

"3's a Charm," a 3-song EP, is the 3rd official collection of songs released by Mista Cookie Jar & The Chocolate Chips.

Track Name: My My My
My little child, won't you stay young forever?
My little child, can't you stay young forever?
It's been a minute, now, we've grown up together.
Baby, please, stay forever young.
My little child, won't you stay young forever?
Won't you stay!
My little child, can't you stay young forever?
Can't you stay!
It's been a minute, now, we've grown up together.
Baby, please, stay forever young.
Baby, please stay young forever!

But now I gotta say,
My, my, my, my, how you've grown.
My, how you've grown.
Oh baby, my, my, my, my, how you've grown.
My, how you've grown.

Wasn't too long ago
When u were beggin' me at night to stay by ur side
when you went to sleep. Oh!
And I would tell u not to worry
We could meet up on a little white cloud
Up there in a dream...
But now you're older and more competent
Wiser & confident
Responsible & similar compliments
I know you're already on top of it.
Yyyeah! And one day, u might not need me no more.
But I promise I'll always be here for you that's fa sho!

I'm singing my, my, my, my, how you've grown.
My, how you've grown.
Oh baby, my, my, my, my, how you've grown.
My, how you've grown.

Like peter pan, 
I'll never age in tha land of never never
i'm gonna stay this young forever
---whatever path---
I gotta be clever, see?
another identity?
nah, just me with a bigger body.
Think I'm old? in minute, i'll be older.
Remember the time I would ride on your shoulders?
But now I'm competent
wiser and confident
responsible and similar adjectives
You know I'm already the raddest kid! 
HA! but I kid,
cuz, well, that's just what I be.
And I never will grow up
Forever y-o-u-n-g!

All this time we've taken
Baby steps, day by day
through all the crazyness.
Moment by moment
through the babyness.
And now ur grown up,
It's the craziest. Oh!
I've always known it
this was meant to be.
Back when u started learning ABC's.
And now its funny just the way I feel.
Happy and sad you
lost your training wheels.
But now, all I can say is

But now all I can say is,
My, my, my, my, how you've grown.
My, how you've grown. (repeat)
Track Name: Be a Little Angel
Be a little angel.
Be a little angel.
Be a little angel for me.
Be a little angel.
Won't you be a little angel.
Be a little angel for me.

Be a little sentimental.
Sweet like a little red Skittle.
Like melody on a fiddle.
How u playin dat?
Oh, you little devil.
Moonlight. Dancing.
Fred Astaire prancing.
Michael Jackson. Moonwalk.
Shakespeare poetry. Moon talk.
Little clowns. Little riddles.
Little clouds. Little squiggles.
Add a little color to your daydreams.
These are some of my favorite things.
Coltrane. Just a little.
Make 'em laugh. Little Jimmy Kimmel
Make em smile just a little while.
Little teardrops for tha baby crocodiles.

Be a little angel.
Won't you be a little angel.
Be a little angel for me.
Please, be a little angel.
Just be a little angel.
Be a little angel for me.

"Don't get caught in the cookie jar,"
said the Cookie Jar to his flock of cherubs.
Team Saintly runnin' errands.
Hug sprees.
Cookie sharin'. We all about that carin'.
Mischievous? Sometimes.
Gotta keep it real for 'em. 1 time!
For the love, 1 family, 1 world, 1 love bubble. 1!
2 times! for the double trouble causing
on the double. Biggin up the bubble.
3 times a charm!
So spread that love far, far, far as you can!

1 little.
2 little.
3 little pink ballerinas.
Splash over oceans in between us.
Pirouette and dash like a cheetah.
Sick wit it.
Quick wit it.
On some now you see me
now you don't bi'ness.
Sing what you
really, really wanna say.
Be a perfect phrase.
Billy Holiday.
Keep lovin'. Keep learnin'.
Keep livin'. Keep yearnin'.
Gotta stay young. Gotta Stay free.
Gotta stay on top of what you oughta be.
To be a doll. To Be kind.
To be your own kinda Albert Einstein.
I know I'm filling up ya precious harddrive.
But just remember one thing, sweet child.
That's:

Be a little angel.
Won't you be a little angel.
Just be a little angel for me.
So please, be a little angel.
Be a little angel.
Be a little angel for me.
Track Name: Prairie Boy
See him swim through rolling green.
Skip along the prairie spring.
Feel the warm summer rays
shine a dream to guide the day.

The wind it dances through the trees
singin' a song between the leaves.
Even fences know them well.
The wind has many a tale to tell.

All alone on the prairie.
The prairie boy follows the fairies.
He watches how they play.
He cares so much about their little ways.

A day of play requires rest.
He takes a breath as the sunsets.
On top a grassy hill he lies
to hear those whispering lullabies.

Oh, the places dreams will go.
His home a sky of indigo.
The peace before that flash of green.
It means so much these little things.

All alone on the prairie.
The prairie boy follows the fairies.
He watches how they play.
He cares so much about their little ways.

He cares so much about their little ways.
He cares so much about their little ways.

He cares so much about their little ways.
He cares so much about their little ways.

He cares so much about their little ways.
