Spread the love and count your blessings! It's time to usher in the Thanksgiving season with the new Chocolate Chip single, "Gratitude." Simply enough, it's a bright and sunny ode to thank-yous. The song features Mista Cookie Jar and his kid, Ava Flava, croonin' and rhymin' to a lively Motown rhythm tickled with soulful xylophone melodies and a bright tenor sax. All instruments are played by the in-house one man band, Mista Cookie Jar. Dare to NOT shake your booty with this one. Gratitude is contagious!

lyrics

Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Thankya, thankya, thankya, thankya, thankya, thankya.
Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Thankya, thankya, thankya, thankya, thankya, thankya.

You, you're such a doll 
with your sweet ways. 
(You're such a sweetie pie, darlin')
How u remember 
all the little things, little things 
that make my day. 
(Go 'head and make my day.)
And we make it day by day 
by day by day
with love. Yeah!
(Ya gotta spread the love.)
And what we got is something
bigger than the pieces of the pie. 
No time to even wonder how or why.

We just go.
(Gotta keep it moving. Gotta keep it moving.)
So aimless. 
(Love is aimless, yeah!)
Spread the love everywhere. 
Doesn't matter. 
Gratitude is contagious. 
(Thank ya! Thank ya!  Thank ya!  Thank ya!  Thank ya! Thank ya!)
We just go. 
(Gotta keep it moving. Gotta keep it moving.)
Find a way through.
(Find a way through, oh!)
And just remember check in
with your crew and your heartbeat too. 
And say thank you, thank you, thank you. 

Thankya. Thankya. 
Thankya. Thankya. Thankya. Thankya. 
Thankya. Thankya. 
Thankya. Thankya. Thankya. (So much!) Thankya. 
Thankya. Thankya. 
Thankya. Thankya. Thankya. Thankya. 
Thankya. Thankya. 
Thankya. Thankya. Thankya. Thankya. 


Thankful for the hugs 
And thankful for the kisses. 
So thankful for my chocolate chips And for the missis. 
Thankful for the laughter in an afternoon movie. 
Thankful for the wisdom 
of a meme in my news feed. 
Thank you! Thank you!
For all of the smiles on your faces. 
Thankful for the plenty oxygen 
molecules that sustain us. 
Thankful for the Q.T. 
with my cuties. 
Quality Time with the family. 
Thankful for what's been handed to me.
So thankful for sunshine.
For fruit punch at lunch time. 
For rock stars at showtime. 
For clean socks in no time.
Gratitude for all my sistas and bros. 
It's on the daily. Keep it going. 
Never stopping, baby!
We just go!
(Gotta keep it moving. Gotta keep it moving.)
So aimless. 
(Love is aimless, yeah!)
Spread the love everywhere. 
Doesn't matter. 
Gratitude is contagious. 
(Thank ya! Thank ya!  Thank ya!  Thank ya!  Thank ya! Thank ya!)
We just go. 
(Gotta keep it moving. Gotta keep it moving.)
Find a way through.
(Find a way through, oh!)
And just remember check in
with your crew and your heartbeat too. 
And say thank you, thank you, thank you. 

Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Thankya, thankya, thankya, thankya, thankya, thankya.
Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Thankya, thankya, thankya, thankya, thankya, thankya.
Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
Gratitude! (Gratitude!)
