Bubble Toes
Original Translation of Slang

It's as simple as something that nobody knows
that her eyes are as big as her bubbly toes
on the feet of a queen of the hearts of the cards
and her feet are all covered with tar balls and scars

It's as common as something that nobody knows
that her beauty will follow wherever she goes
up the hill in the back of her house in the wood
she love me forever, I know she could

It's as simple as something that nobody knows
that her eyes are as big as her bubbly toes
on the feet of a queen of the hearts of the cards
tar balls Reference to the tar on the beach at the University of California-Santa Barbara. Johnson wrote the song about his wife, who he met when they were in school there. Thanks to UCSB student Kimberly J. for this info and the truth about the DLG (below)

I remember when you and me
how we used to be just good friends
Wouldn't give me none
But all I wanted was some
She's got a whole lot of reasons
She can't think of a single one
That can justify leaving
and he got none but he thinks he got so many problems
Man he got, too much time to waste



Wouldn't give me none
wouldn't be romantic/have sex with me


His dreams are like commercials
But her dreams are picture perfect and
Our dreams are so related though they're often underestimated

It's as simple as something that nobody knows that
Her eyes are as big as her bubbly toes
On the feet of the queen of the hearts of the cards
And her feet are infested with tar balls and

La da da da da da

   

Well I was eating lunch at the D. L. G.
When this little girl came and she sat next to me
I never seen nobody move the way she did
Well she did and she does and she'll do it again

When you move like a jellyfish
Rhythm don't mean nothing
You go with the flow
You don't stop
Move like a jellyfish
Rhythm is nothing
You go with the flow
You don't stop

It's as common as something that nobody knows that
Her beauty will follow wherever she goes
Up the hill in the back of her house in the wood
She'll love me forever, I know she

La da da da da da

If you would only listen
You might just realize what you're missing
You're missing me

 

D. L. G. The dining commons at Johnson's dormitory at UCSB

I never seen nobody I've never seen anybody
go with the flow relax, accept things as they are
