This Is True

My inspiration for writing This is True actually came about from friendships over the years… There is obviously a lot more going on in these friendships than one reads in the lyrics, but they present the general gist of the strong bond between these friendships. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4a9WXa0WxI Stream/Download: SoundCloud Amazon Digital Google Play Spotify Deezer Routenote Lyrics: The …

I Remember

Another updated song with the YouTube embed, hence the reblog.

Author & Songwriter Kevin Cooper

I wrote the following Country Music song in honour of a past relationship which is so long past it seems like it was in another life. The song was written with the intention of it being performed as a duet. With that in mind, Brian and Melissa were kind enough to collaborate and record it for which I am truly grateful.

Lyrics

Do you
remember the time we were together?

Do you
remember the laughter and the tears?

Do you
remember the times when things were doubtful?

Do you remember how we scraped by through the years?

Yes, I remember the way that you loved me

I remember
the way that you cared

And somehow
those very happy moments

Still bring
tears back to my eyes we often shared

Do you
remember the times we got in trouble?

Travelling Light

As with some of my other songs, I’ve replaced the audio player with the YouTube embed and reblogged the post.

Author & Songwriter Kevin Cooper

I wrote this song after going through a rough patch in which I had to give up my beloved house and I had to become a council tenant which is something I never thought would happen. However I still considered myself to be lucky when I thought about those who are not so fortunate and end up on the streets. Hence the cover I used for this song.

Lyrics

Travelling Light

That’s the way I’m going

Travelling Light

That’s the way I came

I have no care for many a possession

For wealthy or for poor it’s all the same

When the die is rolled for you there’s not much you can do

One can still be content in life, my son this much is true

Life has its way to drag you down no matter…

The Birthday Song

I updated this post with the YouTube embed and thought it appropriate as there are several birthdays for us in September.

Author & Songwriter Kevin Cooper

I wrote this song a couple of years ago. The Lyrics are very short and are sang faster at each step… Shown below. It’s just another silly song that may not be everybody’s cup of tea.

Lyrics

It’s your birthday

Another year has come and gone

Open your presents

And have a drink on us

While we sing to you this birthday song:

Happy birthday, happy birthday!

It’s party time, take a look

Open the bottles and get some cans out

We’re gonna make you drink until you puke

We all wish you a happy birthday

And we’ll get you to the bathroom quick

So we can all laugh and have a jolly time

While you do the head in toilet trick

(Repeat Happy birthday… 3 times… each time faster)

So we can all laugh and have a…

Play On My Guitar

Since I’ve recently added the track onto YouTube I thought it a good idea to update this post and reblog it.

Author & Songwriter Kevin Cooper

Play On My Guitar (A silly songI wrotea while back. Hope you enjoy it!)

Lyrics

I like to play on my guitar

I like to play on my guitar

I like to play on my guitar everyday

I like to play on my guitar

I like to play on my guitar

I like to play on my guitar everyday

It brings a song onto my lips

That blows the audience to bits

But when I sing the song out loud

I always see a disappearing crowd

(Repeat chorus: I like to play on my guitar…)

I love to sing with my guitar

But people say, I won’t get very far

Yet when I played my favorite tune

They sent me on a rocket to the moon

(I like to play on my guitar…)

When I landed on the moon

I entertained the Moonies race

But then they…

Be-Bop!

Be-Bop! is my latest song to date and one of my favourites. I'm not sure where it came from to be honest. It was like, out of nowhere! I suspect alien influence but I'm not mad enough to insist on it... You know how slowly the world conforms to change. I mean, it... Anyway, I …

The Boogie Song

Once in a while a get a silly jig in my mind that I put lyrics too. The Boogie Song is just another silly (and little bit naughty) song from such an occasion. It's meant more for a party dance type atmosphere, but if you're anything like me (God forbid) That's just about anywhere at …
