srcoops 56


Ohio US   Feb 2011

Artist Bio

Influences:   mainstream jazz

ZeCoop's and Guatecoop's dad. Occasionally provide lyric ideas for them. 84 yr old with no musical talent other than buying instruments and paying for lessons for my offspring. Retired. Have a great marriage of more than 63 years to my high school sweetheart.

I first started writing lyrics in 2011 when I heard ZeCoop was going to do this crazy challenge, and I just kept writing more. I officially started participating and posting lyrics to FAWM in 2018 and have enjoyed the collaborations with the musicians, as well as the supportive and friendly community here. Would like to look into collaborations (lyrics from me - music from you) with others.

You can hear collaborations from previous years on my Bandcamp page:

    Yeah, teachers (and especially the principal) really set the tone for the school.
    Socioeconomic issues are by no means a worthy way to judge kids, or anyone, really. ๐Ÿ˜ž

  • @opossum Mar 2

    Dear srcoops,

    YES! Pogo was a hero of mine when I was a kid! What an awesome opossum he was! Thanks for reminding me!

    Your pal,

  • @nancyrost  Mar 1

    Thanks for sharing your story with me - there's always more under the surface. I respect your mother and you for facing hard circumstances with determination, and you and John for your positive and humorous take in the song.

  • @gordon  Mar 1

    It has been a pleasure trying to interpret your songs again this year. Some people write lyrics which are complicated or too long or just not quite right. I always find that yours are suitably short and simple enough to interpret in different ways. It's a skill to be able to do that, and you have it in spades.

  • @johnstaples  Mar 1

    Hey srcoops! I finished 57 Straight Stick this evening and posted it. I hope you like it. I had lots of fun putting it to music!

  • @johnstaples  Feb 28

    Hiya srcoops! If I can find time later today I was wondering if you would be open to me adding music to your 57 Straight Stick? I can't promise as I am running out of time but I may be able to try. Also, if it is OK would you mind if I added a refrain or a couple of lines that get repeated in several places in the song? I enjoyed reading your lyrics and just wanted to check with you in the event that I have time! Thanks!

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 28

    Hiya Papa!
    Thanks so much for reaching out to me..
    I was planning on packing it in but let me have a look and see if I can work something out..I normally donโ€™t work that fast but because itโ€™s you Iโ€™ll have a crack at it..itโ€™s already 7:16 pm here so Iโ€™m pretty beat but Iโ€™ll let you know by tomorrow..
    Thanks so much papa..take care

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 27

    Ah that's so lovely! I grew up about an hour's drive from Aberystwyth, in a small village called Llanfair Caereinion. (One end of the Llanfair to Welshpool Light Railway.) My Grandparent's were Evans too, though they hailed from the Midlands (England). I'm delighted you enjoyed the song!

  • @wacha  Feb 27

    I had planned on working on Late Love earlier this week. Unfortunately, I've had some health issues that have sidelined me for the last week.

    I am thinking may have to put a placeholder for it and work on the song the first week in March.

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 25

    Hello Mr Cooperider Sir! Iโ€™m so glad you enjoyed Ajax 409 - itโ€™s been a real joy to collaborate with your son and his beautiful wife, I feel very privileged.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 24

    I hope you like what I did with Friendship.

  • @cts  Feb 22

    Sure thing. And I hope that you get back to a place of familiarity. So many miss it (that human interaction). All the best to you and wow - you like, completed a 50/90 during FAWM. That's awesome.

  • @gordon  Feb 19

    I hope you don't mind but I enjoyed the lyrics to A lifetime passes so much that I couldn't resist. As ever, let me know if you really don't like it and I'll take it down, but I tried to do them justice.

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 17

    Thank you so much for your kind comment on my collab with Rob. It was so much fun.

  • @zecoop  Feb 16

    That certainly is a memory! Hahaha ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @gordon  Feb 14

    Well, I had a quick go at it with some harmonies, but I'm sure your boys could do a better job. I'll post it and you can see what you think. I think the lyrics are so powerful that more people would want to have a go.

  • @elesimo  Feb 11

    I really enjoy your lyrics! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @klaus Feb 10

    Hello, again Mr. Srcoops. I just added the Winter Wonderland demo. Please feel free to add liner notes and stuff if you like. Thank you very much for this collaboration. I'll post Junk Drawer Thursday the latest. Cheers! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 9

    I still have a ratty old ENMU Marching Band t-shirt somewhere. I wasn't in it, but snagged it up from a Goodwill or something ๐Ÿ˜

    I was there helping out a buddy that was struggling getting help for work crews, mostly house remodeling. I think our work site got robbed 4 or 5 times. Most of our work was in Clovis. Not a very pleasant little city. Miserable heat/wind and I think it stormed about 3 times a day, enough to make it humid when the sun inevitably popped back out 5 minutes later ๐Ÿ˜ No pleasant memories for me from the place. ๐Ÿ˜

  • @klaus Feb 9

    Hi Srcoops. Just wondering do you want me to send you a demo for approval before I post it? Because this is our first collab and all. I'm working on them tonight.

    Oh, and I may have in a hurry asked your permission twice for Winter Wonderland collab. Sorry about that. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 9

    saw your comment elsewhere about Clovis, NM I'm used to the desert and small towns/cities, but I couldn't agree with you more. I spent maybe half a year in Portales. I got out of there first chance I could ๐Ÿ˜ and it was a pretty little quaint town, but was too close to Clovis hahaha

  • @daveyboy103  Feb 8

    I hope that rotten egg din't spoil your day ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @gordon  Feb 7

    I do hope you don't mind, but I had a go at Down and hope I have done it justice. See what you think

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 6

    Hey mate thx for our Collab it was fun and we got some nice feedback! I might have one more in me so if you find one you think is me hit me up!

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 4

    music up for A Young man grown - hope you like this little pop song which you words were calling me to do!

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 4

    would love to take A young man grown

  • @tunecat  Feb 3

    I've done a demo for your song "I'll never do that again. Just uploading now.

  • @gordon  Feb 3

    As promised (or threatened?) I had a go at As time goes by

  • @wobbiewobbit  Feb 2

    thanks for the listen, sorry you caught it , so glad you are better! yes of course advice offered in my song only applies to online! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @mishykatz  Feb 2

    Thank you for the comment on There is Good! I love first fruits, it's my 'second' first fruits haha. Much appreciated.

  • @rigbysummer Feb 1

    gah! now i came to your landing page and read your bio and i'm so excited to follow you! i may have to pick some lyrics for collab ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿงก

  • @sjbatavia  Jan 31

    So glad youโ€™re doing better! So far I donโ€™t think I need to go to the hospital, but itโ€™s definitely scary!

  • @seemanski  Jan 30

    Hey, happy fawming. A collab could definitely be on the cards ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @sjbatavia  Jan 29

    Looking forward to it! Glad to see youโ€™re back. Iโ€™m recovering from Covid so I wonโ€™t be on my game right away.

  • @coolparadiso  Jan 29

    all being well I will be up for a collab!

  • @judypie  Jan 28

    Happy Fawming โค๏ธ

  • @cynthiawolff  Jan 22

    Hiya Papa Coops..
    Hoping we can collab again this year...
    Have an amazing time amigo.

  • @gordon  Jan 21

    Rest up and get well soon. Thinking of you and sending you good thoughts. Stay positive and take plenty of rest.

  • @sapient  Jan 21

    A pleasure to see you here again! Happy Fawming!

  • @gordon  Jan 21

    You must be psychic sir! On my way to work today I thought I must write to Srcoops and see how he is doing, but you beat me to it. Looking forward to February again, and hope we can work together.

  • @zecoop  Jan 15

    Welcome back to FAWM, dad!!! I'm excited to read (and hear) what is created this year! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @metalfoot  Jan 12

    Well then! We'll have to collab at some point again this year ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @nancyrost  Jan 12

    Welcome back! Yes, let's collab again this FAWM.
