about

In the spirit of February's pioneering Aquarians and the cultural hodgepodge that is Mardi Gras, Mista Cookie Jar & the Chocolate Chips bring you "The Way We Gets Down," an anthem for the funky weasels, the cool cats, and the badd, baby beagles of planet Earth. Cookie's one-man-band of horns, whistles, kazoos, & more bring a hybrid of old-timey jazz & new-timey pop & hip-hop. In a melting of melting pots, the Chocolate Chips have reinvented themselves yet again in celebration of the universality of being unique. So join the family and follow Mista Cookie Jar's big band parade from the outskirts of outer space all the way back home. 

"The Way We Gets Down" is the 5th in a row "single-a-month" release in anticipation of the third Mista Cookie Jar & the Chocolate Chips album release (date yet to be determined).

lyrics

The Way We Gets Down

To all my badd, baby beagles.
My funky weasels.
My cool cats from miles around.
We pound a fist becuz we equals.
That's just the way we gets down.
Where all my turkey-talking eagles?
My beardy Beatles?
Dat tribe traveling town to town?
We puts da WE in we da people.
Dats just da way we gets down.

Hi to all my hybrids
maximizing hyphens.
Duck-billed platypi
confounding bio-science.
Oh, what a riot!
It's categorically defying.
Ya do da ting ya do
cuz when ya do
it keep us smilin.
Uncountable
flavors so flavorful
when ya dining.
Risk takin fashion makin.
Timeless with ya stylin.
Too many styles!
Best ya rolodex for filing,
then line em up
for higher self-defining.
Word!

To all my badd, baby beagles.
My funky weasels.
My cool cats from miles around.
We pound a fist becuz we equals.
That's just the way we gets down.
Where all my turkey-talking eagles?
My beardy beetles?
Dat tribe traveling town to town?
We puts da WE in we da people.
Dats just da way we gets down.

The way we getz down
hair, it's time to lets down
Straight, curly, dreadlock,
toupee, bald, -- comb-over
and wrap-around!
Bowl cuts, crew cuts.
blowouts 'n' super giant afros.
Every type of anything
Under the sun
That's how this rap goes!
Please pardon me for asking
Im wondering bout ya accent
It's cultural gymnastics
How we jumpin round the map from
the urban, suburban to rural.
Humans and aliens.
Boys and the girrrlz.
Intergalactic. Down to the neural
Colliding worlds

To all my badd, baby beagles.
My fonky weasels.
My cool cats from miles around.
We pound a fist becuz we equals. Pow!
That's just the way we gets down.
Where all my land-loving seagulls?
My beardy beetles?
Dat tribe traveling town to town?
We puts da WE in we da people.
Dats just da way we gets down.

So much color and soul I
had never experienced before.
I had never seen
or heard anything like it.
The epic incredible wonders galore.
The feeling spreads up
from out the beat
inside your heart
and to your feet.
Gotta tap-tap-tap dat toe on the floo'
Keep it jumpin and bumping and thumping.
We SO on to something. So,
by virtue of the other,
outside the lines we color.
It's who we are
and is and will be.
So be cool, my brotha.
So stay chill, my sista.
Boogie as you will.
You know you can count on us
That we know tha deal.
We family!

To all my badd, baby beagles.
My fawnky weasels.
My cool cats from miles around.
We pound a fist becuz we equals. Pow!
That's just the way we gets down.
Where all my land loving seagulls?
My beardy Beatles?
Dat tribe traveling town to town?
We puts da WE in we da people.
Dats just da way we gets down.
