As it is 04:01
AS IT IS Some fellas need to jump off a cliff Some are oblivious to the highest bliss Some others need the speedin’ up ‘Cause they get bored no matter what they do Some others like it as it used to be Some people need to go “Tie me please” Some others like to unleash the beast.....aahhh Some just can’t help being so square So many love to keep and never share Different pills for different thrills Chorus: Woohoo You know I dig my life as it is Woohoo I’m gonna love my life as it is, as it is Woohoo Youknow Idigmylifeasitis Woohoo I’d rather face it just as it is , as it is Some brothers kill their sisters’ dreams Too many women lack of self esteem Some others need to have a cross to bear Some just can’t help but judge you and me But we won’t feed their tragedy Chorus: Woohoo You know I dig my life as it is Woohoo I’m gonna love my life as it is, as it is Woohoo Youknow Idigmylifeasitis Woohoo I’d rather face it just as it is , as it is

Vs 2 Got to own a home common sense we got to show turning ourselves into slaves (Slaves, slaves, slaves) so we had to find a job all the self respect we lost tryin' to live the way we've been told now i'm not here to say you got to carry on this or that way we all happen to be right here, right now (right here, right now, Vocoder only) we all think we're doing what we can, we don't wanna be no "yes man!" and it so hard sometimes to see which way to go Bridge : life is pain and pleasure, but it's only what we choose to believe and life we cannot measure we only get to live it Hearin' what you hear Feelin' what you feel, how can you still believe How can you believe / How can you still believe It's all an equal game, A necessary pain (necessary pain) these waves hitting you everyday (waves)

ONE IN A BILLION ( SirJo Cocchi) Walkin' down the streets today Each single face a different shade Everyone 's got a story that' I'd love to hear When they pass me by , their scent so near I can sense flowers and a bit of tears The whole world in a single smile Wiping away the six basic fears There's a billion beautiful girls but none of them suits my world the way you do, oh yeah, baby it's true So many talks , each one their unique way I can't speak the language, but I bet they got something to say Well I'd love to listen, I wonder what they're talking about I'd love to hear them whisper, holler and shout YEAH A lot of people stare but they just can't hear A whole world in a single sound Wiping away the six basic fears There's a billion beautiful girls but none of them suits my world the way you do, oh yeah, baby it's true There's a billion beautiful girls but none of them suits my world the way you do, oh yeah, baby it's true Many many beautiful girls So Many many bbut only you give me the right foundation, right vibration you lift me up high Cause There's a billion beautiful girls but none of them suits my world the way you do, oh yeah, baby it's true

Black beauty 04:02
BLACK BEAUTY (SirJo Cocchi) Black Beauty Walk your dog Gotta make our eyes cross Watching the music shop window Faking it all right, When our eyes do finally cross I feel satisfied But Satisfactions last a moment This one is no exception, when u pass me by my eyes change suddendly direction When satisfaction is repeated My rapture’s (My Rapture’s) been totally completed The first look was a smile, the second one You’re just checking if I turned to you, Searching for That feeling we’ve (just) been expecting Then you turned to me, Yes you turned to me And this time , here it really happens In a loveless place, in a lovers’ town Your green eyes seam fearless They succeed and drag me on down The first look was a smile, the second one You’re just checking if I turned to you, 2X Searching for That feeling we’ve (just) been expecting Then you turned to me, Yes you turned to me 2X Then you turned to me

Tell me 05:13
TELL ME Somebody told me I was too white to funk But to me there ain’t no color When it’s time to stomp, no I do believe the real power’s within In your heart in your mind And not in your skin Now I don’t have to act Like someone I ain’t To prove some people That I ain’t no fake Tell me What do you see on my face When you look at me? Tell me What it is, what’s within? Now people let me tell you It’s the sweat That is pouring and pouring From my feet to my hat It’s the groove running up my spine that is pushing and pushing so I can get some drive And it comes to get on stage I feel so funky, what can I say? Tell me What do you see on my face When you look at me? Tell me What it is, what’s within?

Crazy fool 04:23
CRAZY FOOL (SirJo Cocchi) "Wait, remember everything u do can make or break the world you're living in" "no," he said "this is not possible! you crazy fool, how can you dream Iʼd believe you? just take a look at all the past and all the lunacy surrounding you right now, we're isolated feeble candles in a storm” And U may feel that Iʼm a crazy fool, donʼt think that I / just donʼt care about it all And U may feel I live by crazy rules, no fear or doubt / will ever change my will to love "See, i realize what you're going through: a rude awakening / following a glorious dream, is this the fear you're running from? but morning always comes, we're all soon gonna rise / take a look inside the stories out there / all the love you see into a motherʼs eyes , / weʼre bright lighthouses, shelters in the storm And U may feel that Iʼm a crazy fool, donʼt think that I / just donʼt care about it all And U may feel I live by crazy rules, no fear or doubt / will ever change my will to love

about

This album is the result of the collaboration between different artists based in Italy. Each one of them has his/her own project and here they once again got together (after the first album AS IT USED 2B) to record some new songs by SirJo Cocchi, specifically written with this band in mind. They recorded the basic tracks for 5 days at Elfo Studio in Northern Italy, all together (singers included) in different rooms, then did a minimum of overdubs on the vocals, and that was it. The idea is to have songs that most of the time, after the classic 4 min or so, turn into a jazz-funk-rock jam, reflecting the way the songs were played live.

about

SirJo Cocchi Milano, Italy

I'm a singer-songwriter, atypical keyboardist and producer, I'm based in Milan, Italy and my sound is a SoulFunkPop trip where I mix modern and vintage. I started singing as a kid and developed a vertical, grooving approach to the keyboard also because I was born with dysmelia in my left hand. The Songbook Chronicles is my current project, a series of 6 interconnected thematic EPs. ... more
