Dental Care

Album: Ocean Eyes (2009)

  • I brush my teeth and look in the mirror,
    And laugh out loud,
    As I'm beaming from ear to ear,
    I'd rather pick flowers instead of fights,
    And rather than flaunt my style I'd flash you a smile
    Of clean pearly whites.

    I've been to the dentist a thousand times so I know the drill,
    I smooth my hair,
    Sit back in the chair
    But somehow I still get the chills

    Have a seat he says pleasantly,
    As he shakes my hand and practically laughs at me,
    "Open up nice and wide" he says peering in,
    And with a smirk he says "don't have a fit,
    This will just pinch a bit"
    As he tries not to grin.

    When hygienists
    Leave on long vacations
    That's when dentists scream and
    Lose their patience

    Talking only brings the toothaches on because
    I say the stupidest things
    So if my results go south, I swallow my pride with an aspirin and shut my mouth

    Golf and alcohol don't mix
    And that's why I don't drink and drive
    Because good grief
    I'd knock out my teeth
    And have to kiss my smile goodbye

    I've been to the dentist a thousand times
    So I know the drill,
    I smooth my hair,
    Sit back in the chair
    But some how I still get the chills Writer/s: ADAM R. YOUNG
