about

Kristen Cook Santa Monica, California

Ms. Cook is the next voice in children's music and education.

"She has the bubbly nuances of Jack Johnson, the aloofness and unpredictability of Regina Spektor, the enthusiasm for life of Bob Marley, and the sense of camaraderie of all those country and folk singers you love. Wrap yourself in a comfy blanket—that's the music of Kristen Cook." ... more

Track Name: See What I Like
I wanna wake up early
I’m gonna get out of my cozy bed.
cuz I know tonight I, I get to fall asleep in it again...
In it again.

I believe in myself, and the stars in the sky
nd’ I’ll always do my best to find the love that it’s in their eyes.
I could teach you to sing,
and hope you don’t sing lies.
But I’d rather be the clay I mold,
see in the mirror what I like.
See what I like.

I’m gonna rise up early,
with the bright and shining morning sun.
tackle today,
So tonight my To Do’s will be done,
They will be done.

CHORUS

sweet bridge
CHORUS
Track Name: My Very Own Beatbox
Can’t fight this feeling, my body’s free wheeling,
I can’t keep my feet on the ground.
I’m hearing a rhythm, and using my voice so I can make a fountain of
sound!

I’m gonna plant my feet, like a tree,
So I can be, the best version of me.
Sway my limbs, to the beat,
Of my Very Own Beatbox, Yeah my Very Own Beatbox!

BOOTS n CATS! :)

Jumping and Twirling, my heart is free whirling,
My body it moves like a wave.
All I can think of is doing a breakdance
Do you have a beat we could play?

I’m gonna plant my feet, like a tree,
So I can be, the best version of me.
Sway my limbs, to the beat,
Of my Very Own Beatbox, Yeah my Very Own Beatbox!

You get me fired up!.....
I’m gonna plant my feet, like a tree,
So I can be, the best version of me.
Sway my limbs, to the beat,
Of my Very Own Beatbox, Yeah my Very Own Beatbox!
Track Name: Teahupo'o
I had a dream, we swam to an island on a freeway of streams.
In search of a wave, We hoped that the planets and the tides were in
sync.
We will be free, We will have love, We will ride, It won't be too tough.
Teahupo'o Teahupo'o Teahupo'o Teahupo'o

You look for your board, under the shade of the tree, by the porch.
and I strum a song, and I whistle "good bye" as you head out the door.

We will be free, We will have love, We will ride, It won't be too tough.
Teahupo'o Teahupo'o Teahupo'o Teahupo'o

Sometimes it swells so high above the other waves,
We hang 8 9 10, We're feeling strong, We're feeling brave.
Sometimes it swells so high above the other waves,
We hang 8 9 10, We're feeling strong, We're feeling brave.

Teahupo'o Teahupo'o Teahupo'o Teahupo'o

You’ll have your ins and outs,
You’ll have your faith your doubts,
You’ll have your ins and outs, your faith your doubts…

We will be free, We could have love, We could ride, It won't be too
tough.

Teahupo'o Teahupo'o Teahupo'o Teahupo'o
I’m waiting for you.
Track Name: I Give Thanks
I give thanks with my whole heart, with my whole heart,
I give thanks.
I give thanks with my whole heart, with my whole heart,
I give thanks.
I am grateful for this food, for my friends I have gratitude.
I am grateful for my home, I’m grateful for my family,
I’ll never be alone.
I give thanks with my whole heart, with my whole heart,
I give thanks.
I give thanks with my whole heart, with my whole heart,
I give thanks.
Track Name: Fruit Fight
“You look a little seedy to me,” said the Coconut to the Strawberry.
“You feel a little fuzzy for me,” said the Pineapple to the young Kiwi.
That’s when the strawberry came and said the coconut had bananas
for brains.
Kiwi had enough of this fight so he stood up and shouted with all his
might…

We may all be Different.....We may all be Different....
It’s Okay!!!!! It’s Okay!!!!!!!

“You’re rich in Vitamin C,” said the Pineapple to the young Kiwi.
“You and I could make a groovy smoothie,” said the Coconut to the
strawberry.
Strawberry came back around and said, “I’m sorry that I put ya
down.”
Then the kiwi smiled and said, “I’m glad that we can all be friends!”

We may all be Different.....We may all be Different....
It’s Okay!!!!! It’s Okay!!!!!!!

Sing it Out, Around the World! …….
