Newest song I have been screwing with. I recorded it like my last one I shared: using my looper linearly, like a regular recorder. Here are the lyrics, too. I know the bass is probably too prominent, and the vocals could come up a touch. Oh well—next time. Let me know what you think. Appreciate you guys!


Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum
cakewalking in the sun,
baby, look at you.

Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum
my sweet elastic one,
love ya through and though.

We go out all night, and never fight like the others do.
Come morning light, I feel alright,
then I just chew, chew, chew

on my Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum
so pretty and sorta dumb.
Let’s see those easy eyes.

Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum
my crispy butter crumb,
always a surprise.

Love how you say this’ll poof away if we take it slow.
Baby every day I plan to feel this way so I’ll just blow, blow, blow

up my Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum. Call for me and I’ll run
right to your side.

Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum,
my cuckoo full o’ fun,
my perky punkin pie,

I remember a time I’d get five for dime.
They tried to make me stop.
But now you’re mine, and you say it’s fine
If I just pop, pop, pop

On my . . .

-solo-

Let me unwrap you first
You look about to burst
Oh man alive, my luck
I’m gonna eat you up, up,
up, up.

Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum,
can’t believe I’m the one
that gets to take you home.

Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum,
my search has come and gone.
Stick to me alone.

Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum,
love you a tasty ton.
Girl I’ll never roam

from my Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum,
can’t wait to get me some.
Better than an ice cream cone.

Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum,
my yummiest yummy one,
man, the biggies I’ve blown

with my Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum,
so silvery in the sun.
Yum yum yoam.

Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum,
bubbliest Bubble Gum.
Yum yum yoam.

My my my my Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum
Bubble Gum, bubbly one.
Yum yum yummy yoam.

Oh, Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum,
my bubbly Bubble Gum.
Yum yum yoam

My my Bubble, Bubble Gum . . .

Well, poof is onomatopoetic, I suppose. It’s a sound of something vanishing. Something that goes poof disappears or ends, so, in this case it is a relationship that will end if the lovers slow down and practice mediation. Being a little reckless fuels the love itself, I guess. Equally as important here, the phrase poof away also acts as a double-entendre in that a bubble gum bubble also pops, or “poofs” away. They also tend to deflate disappointingly, or poof away, if you blow them up too slowly.

I like the music. But if you redo it with a modern pop production and some auto tune I think it might gain some traction.
