Taylor Lyrics

They say Taylor was a good girl, never one to be late
Complain, express ideas in her brain
Working on the night shift, passing out the tickets
You're gonna have to pay her if you want to park here

Well mommy's little dancer is quite a little secret
Working on the streets now, never gonna keep it
It's quite an imposition and now she's only wishin'
That she would have listened to the words they said
Poor Taylor

She just wanders around, unaffected by,
The winter winds here, she'll pretend that
She's somewhere else, so far and clear
About two thousand miles, from here

Well Peter Patrick pitter patters on the window,
The sunny silhouette won't let him in
And poor old Pete's got nothing 'cause he's been falling
And somehow sunny knows just where he's been

He thinks that singin' on Sunday's gonna save his soul
Now that Saturday's gone
And sometimes he thinks that he's on his way,
But I can see, that his brake lights are on

He just wanders around, unaffected by,
The winter winds here, and he'll pretend that
He's somewhere else, so far and clear,
About two thousand miles from here

Such a tough enchilada, filled up with nada
Givin' what you gotta give to get a dollar bill
Used to be a limber chicken, times have been a ticking
Now she's finger lickin' to the man
With the money in his pocket, flying in his rocket
And only stopping by on his way to a better world

If Taylor finds a better world
Then Taylor's gonna run away

  • This song is often rumored to tell the story about a prostitute. The prostitute statement is simply a misunderstanding. Jack Johnson wrote this song about a young girl named Taylor, hence the title of the song.

    The song tells the story of three characters. The main character is Taylor, a sweet, young, innocent, lonely little girl, who is searching to find her heart. In the story, Taylor works the night shift, passing out tickets to patrons who want to see her dancing. All this time, Taylor is dreaming of a paradise where sadness is unknown. However, things turn sour when a secret about her life reveals a sudden change. Feeling as though she has been mistreated, Taylor leaves her parents' home, trying to find someone who will comfort her. However, she only finds herself wandering the streets, looking for a place she can call home. As she wanders along, Taylor meets the second character in the story, a young man named Peter Patrick, who is twice her age. Like Taylor, Peter Patrick is trying to find his heart. When Peter Patrick discovers that he's locked out of his own house, he pitter-patters on his window. As he waits with Taylor outside his house, Pete discovers that the third character of this story, his wife, Sunny, won't let him into his own house! Somehow, Sunny realizes that she knows the truth, she knows just where Pete's been going to. Sunny discovers the secret, that Pete has fallen for Taylor! However, Pete realizes all the while that he has made so many mistakes, but he wasn't going to let his love for Taylor be the biggest mistake he's made in his life. So, Pete tries to cover up the situation by thinking that going to church every Sunday will make everything right again.
  • The line, "Two thousand miles from here" refers to Hawaii, Jack Johnson's native home.
  • Johnson made a music video of this song with Ben Stiller, who plays the director.
  • Back when Taylor Swift was a teenage country star, she revealed to Rolling Stone that this song was her ringtone, saying that she ignores "the fact that the song is probably about a prostitute or a stripper."
