Cookie Jar blends British R’n’B of the ‘60’s with Strong Persuader era Robert Cray, a Hammond organ hook leading into a tale of suspicion, infidelity and ultimately murder. Drummer Roy Martin drives this number from the outset with an urgent and subtly funky backbeat, locked in with bassist Andy Graham, while Matt Taylor delivers a big story in few words and a short sharp shock of a guitar solo.


Cookie Jar (Taylor)

I never thought I’d be
The kind of guy to beg for mercy
I’ve been around the world
But I’ve never met anyone like you girl
You come and go just as you please
Your destination a mystery
You treat me like a sevant child
You’ve brought a grown man to his knees

You never thought that you’d get caught
With your hand in the cookie jar

I never thought I’d stoop so low
To follow you around wherever you go
I saw you ring the bell
And step into the house you knew so well
The gate was locked so I climbed the wall
And at the window I saw it all
Where your affections really lie
It brought about my downfall

I forced the door and I climbed the stairs
In the bedroom I found you there
For treating me like such a fool
There won’t be no more cookies for you
