Unfinished Sweet

Album: Billion Dollar Babies (1973)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is about a trip to the dentist! On the Good To See You Again, Alice Cooper DVD, this song is acted out as Alice having a cavity and having to get it drilled out. It then cuts out of the concert and shows him chasing the tooth through the street. It wasn't originally going to be shown that way but to keep it rated PG they had to shoot the street thing and edit out the part where he gets "frisky" with the giant tooth brush. That part is in the deleted scenes. >>

    you think THAT'S a weird song for alice?? lol -- not laughing at you, just thinking of some other songs of alice's ... 'cold ethyl' comes to mind lol ...

    "One thing
    No lie
    Ethyl's frigid as an eskimo pie
    She's cool in bed
    Well she oughta be 'cause Ethyl's dead"

    and his delivery just cracks me up ... but alice has had some beauts ,... a great performer and all time classic
  • Jordan from Akron, MiThis is great. Alice chasing the tooth with a giant toothbrush is just brilliant.
  • Johnny from Los Angeles, CaWhat a weird song. Dentist? What strange concept for Alice Cooper, especially after reading the "frisky with toothbrush" line and realized just how weird he was.
