"If you would only listen you might just realize what you’re missing you’re...
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

La da da da da da

    General CommentThis is definitely a toe-tappin' tune, but the part I love best is the line "If you would only listen you might just realize what you're missing, you're missing me." It explains miscommunication so very well. I can't add to it, it's just genius.

    General CommentI have always wondered, what the heck are "tar balls"? Should I know this already?

    Other than that, I have to say I find this song delightful. I like Jack's whimsical lyrics, like "she moves like a jellyfish," and his style of delivery perfectly complements them.

    I also like how all of Jack's song portray the ambivalence of love - he sees this woman's imperfections very well, but his main complaint is that she doesn't listen.

    General Commenti love the connections that only a few people will get from this song . . . ^_^

    Jack Johnson graduated from UCSB and the DLG is the De La Guerra Dining Commons . . . it's cool thinking how cool it is that i might be sitting in the same spot as he is when he saw that girl

    his style of music fits his background of a UCSB surfer and film maker . . . very laid back and relaxing . . . perfect song for beach parties

    General CommentThis guy is such a great songwriter, this song's awesome. Jack Johnson's SO big in Santa Cruz, since half of us are just washed up surfers with seawater flowing through our ears. But yah, he does good job of taking her imperfections along with her good things. A must in anything is to realize the bad with the goo.
