The Lyrics

Under my gums
The germs have grown--
Can't deny--
Under my gums
The buccal flora's

Pits 'round my teeth!
I maybe flossed once in my life--
'Round my teeth:
Microbial slums, they're
Under my gums!

Pain in the tooth, babe--

Under my gums
Some oatmeal scones have
Just left their trace;
Under my gums
Some turkey strands
Just gone to waste;

Grits 'round my teeth!
Yes, it's grits!
That baked lasagna's turned to mold!
'Round my teeth
Crumbcake left crumbs, they're
Under my gums!

Ow! Ow! Say it's alright--

Under my gums:
Some Japanese
Fat from an eel;
Under my gums:
Philippine-ish, mmmm,
Fresh mango peel;

Sit down and eat!
The way you rolfed when I spoke to you--
Bound to be
Decayed red plums, they're
Under my gums!

Ah, taste is cheesy, babe--

Mints are the key!
Oh, yeah!
All day I chomp on those Altoids, too,
Rolaids and Tums, they're
Under my gums!

Yeah, it feels alright--

Putrefied gums!
My hygienist just
Wept to herself!
Under my gums, her nose
Might detect some unearthly smells!

Spit out my teeth!
Oh, that's what they said!
They may use caulk for my broken tooth!
Ow! My teeth!
It tastes like chum, what's
Under my gums!

Say it's alright...

Say it's all...
Say it's all...

Taste is cheesy, babe...
Taste is cheesy, babe...
Feels alright...
Scrape it, scrape it easy, babe...

555 for funny - but I'm probably not going to eat the rest of my dinner now... ;^)
