the Abscess Blues

There's trouble on my gum line, I can feel it in my bones

I had a premonition that I would have to take out a loan

I knew the tooth had a cavity, but I didn?t think It?d pop

Holy cow it?s throbbing and I think I?m gonna drop

Everything exploded, and the blood began to spill

The dentist just smiled and fired up his drill

Here's a little money, now we'll set up an easy payment plan

You be cool for twenty minutes, and It'll cost about a grand

Yeah just about a grand?

I'm sorry it went down like this, but someone had to lose

It's the nature of the business, it's the abscess blues.

The drills and the xylocaine, the needles and gas

He pokes it and asks is this it? as I levitate my ass

The drilling wouldn?t bother me if I didn?t see the smoke

I hope he gives me a script for some really strong dope

Doesn?t matter if you are John Wayne, Hercules or super man

When the drill hits home you?re gonna scream just like a girl

Yeah, just like a girl?

I'm sorry it went down like this, but someone had to lose

It's the nature of tooth decay, it's the abscess blues.

Your face swells up and throbs just like a disco ball

Everything hurts no matter if it?s big or small

You wonder how a little tooth can cause so much pain

You talk just like Clint Eastwood, there?s no need to explain

You wonder how you ever let it get this bad

Everyone avoids the dentist, an old story that so sad

Yeah, it?s so sad?

I'm sorry it went down like this, but someone had to lose

It's the mortal fear of dentist, it's the abscess blues.

You see it in the headlines, you hear it every day

Brush your teeth twice a day, but it doesn't go away

It starts between your teeth or on your gum line

It moves along and tricks you into thinking that you feel fine

It hides in cracks and works its evil late into the night

Until one day you wake up to terrible pain and fright

You ask any dentist, man, they'll say there's nothing you can do

But get your tail to the dentist office- that?s all you can do.

Now that's art. Take a toothache and write a poem about it. Terrific stuff. Should get to be No. 1 on the charts. I bet it inspires a movie or two as well. :icon_twisted:
