Sheryl Crow
Soak up the Sun
Original Translation of Slang

My friend the communist
Holds meetings in his RV
I can't afford his gas
So I'm stuck here watching TV
I don't have digital
I don't have diddly squat
It's not having what you want
It's wanting what you've got

 

My friend the communist
RV recreational vehicle
I can't afford his gas
So I'm stuck here watching TV

digital digital television
I don't have diddly squat I really don't have anything (strong emphasis)

CHORUS
I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
I've got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I'm looking up
I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna soak up the sun

I've got a crummy job
It don't pay near enough
To buy the things it takes
To win me some of your love
Every time I turn around
I'm looking up, you're looking down
Maybe something's wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do

CHORUS

I'm gonna soak up the sun
While it's still free
I'm gonna soak up the sun
Before it goes out on me

 


gonna going to
I'm gonna tell everyone
lighten up take things less seriously
I've got no one to blame
lame weak


n

crummy low quality
don't correct grammar: doesn't

Don't have no master suite
I'm still the king of me
You have a fancy ride, but baby
I'm the one who has the key
Every time I turn around
I'm looking up, you're looking down
Maybe something's wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do
Maybe I am crazy too

CHORUS

I'm gonna soak up the sun
Got my 45 on
So I can rock on

 

master suite large suite of rooms at a hotel
the king of me in control of myself
