Bubble Toes

Album: Brushfire Fairytales (2001)
  • 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 world she love me forever,
    I know she could

    I remember when you and me mmm 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

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

    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

  • David from Lafayette, InYou ever notice how the Colbie Calet song Bubbly seems to refrence then song...? think she wants to bone Jack?
  • Kyle from Egmondville, CanadaThis song really got me into JJ. I just love coming on here and reading how every song started as a joke with his wife. hahaha
  • Kappy from Concord, CaD.L.G. is not the only reference to Santa Barbara in the song. The line "and her feet are allcovered with tar balls and scars" refers to the fact that natural tar seeps from the ocean floor in the SB area and when you walk along the beach little tarballs stick to your feet.
  • Max from Honolulu, Hiwow! i love this song soooo much! it really picks me up when i am having a bad day! thanks Jack i love you!!!!
  • Adam from Greenfield, InI went to a JJ concert fairly recently and It was horrible. I was so buzzed when I left just from a contact buzz... It was just some hippy pot smoking fest... But hey if thats your thing... Then Rock ON
  • Dave from Philadelphia, PaJack's not bad. Rodeo Clowns is a good one but the version with G-love is better I think.
  • Billy Ross from Hagerstown, Mdmy favorite JJ song
