Biography

Born in 1975 in the Land of Mozart, Mai Cocopelli acquired music with Mother’s milk. With the writing of her first children’s song at 15, she found her calling and went on to study music and music education. Naming herself after Native American troubadour and medicine man Kokopelli, multi-instrumentalist Mai has taken the hearts of children (young and old) by storm. In addition to a first place at the song contest hosted by Western German Broadcasting and UNICEF in Cologne, she is the first woman to win the prestigious Nurnberg contest. The mother of a wonderful daughter has been touring in Europe since 1999 both solo and in various splendid synergies. Mai dedicates her life work to children through her performances, CDs and accompanying books; the first English CD will be released soon.

Lyrics

Bug in your Ear

Written By: Mai Cocopelli

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah….

Refrain:
You have a bug in your ear
But there’s nothing to fear
You have a bug in your ear
That’s a reason to cheer
You have a bug in your ear
But there’s nothing to fear
Cause that bug in your ear
Will give you an idea
What to do now and here
Enjoy that bug in your ear

1
This tiny bug starts to move
And begins to really groove
In your hand the bug makes you
Want to greet a friend or two
Watch what happens now
The bug will show you how

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah….

2
This tiny bug starts to move
And begins to really groove
Now it moves down to your feet
And dances with you to the beat
Watch what happens now
The bug will show you how

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah….

3
This tiny bug starts to move
And begins to really groove
In your heart this little bug
Makes you want to kiss and hug
Watch what happens now
The bug will show you how

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah….

Refrain:
La la la la la la la la la…

1. I wanna keep moving, stay in motion
Walking, running, with devotion
Without sports I cannot be
Come on kids and move with me

La la la la la la la la la…

2. I wanna jump high and ever higher
Turning, singing with desire
Without sports I cannot be
Come on kids and jump with me

La la la la la la la la la…

3. I wanna kick a football, make it roll
Playing, passing, score a goal
Without sports I cannot be
Come on kids and play with me

Ye dedle dedle dedle...

4. I wanna swim around just like a fish
Diving under, that’s my wish
Without sports I cannot be
Come on kids and swim with me

La la la la la la la la la…

5. I wanna dance alone or in a crowd
And sing to the music way up loud
Without sports I cannot be
Come on kids and dance with me

La la la la la la la la la…

a Thousand Sounds

Written By: Mai Cocopelli

A thousand sounds fill my ear,
a thousand sounds all new to hear.
Rattles, rumbles, knocks and ticks,
jingles, rustles, songs and clicks.
A thousand sounds fill my ear,
a thousand sounds all new to hear.

1
Have you ever heard that earthworms
sneeze on every kiss from germs?
Perhaps they caught a cold,
or they’re simply getting old?
It sounds something like this,
a sound you should not miss.
Now everyone come near
and hear what I can hear:
(kiss) (kiss) hachoo

2
A lady bug smacks its lips
when it eats potato chips.
A lady bug smacks its lips
and I forgot to bring the dips.
It sounds something like this,
a sound you should not miss.
Now everyone come near
and hear what I can hear:
Mmh, crab, crab, crab.

3
This wood is full of termites
that chomp both day and night.
The termites really know the beat
that can bring me to my feet.
It sounds something like this,
a sound you should not miss.
Now everyone come near
and hear what I can hear:
Rgzg Rgzg Rgzg

It sounds something like this,
a sound we should not miss.
Now everyone join in
Let’s sing with a big grin:
