He Liked To Feel It

Album: A Worm's Life (1996)
  • There was a boy
    Who liked to wiggle his tooth loose so he could show it
    And then we'd watch
    While he would tie it to a doorknob, wind up, and then slam it

    And that was how he liked to have his teeth pulled out
    He told us how he liked to feel it when it came out

    But he grew tired
    Of using doorknobs and so he thought up a brand-new trick
    He said he'd tie
    His tooth to his dog's tail, find a stick, wind up, and then throw it

    And that was how he liked to have his teeth pulled out
    He told us how he liked to feel it when it came out

    He called his dog
    But just as he was set to go, his dad arrived there
    He yelled at him
    Then got some pliers, held him, wound up, and yanked it out right there

    That wasn't how he liked to have his teeth pulled out
    He wouldn't tell us how it felt when it came out Writer/s: BRAD ROBERTS
