The Lyrics

Thought about this while looking at Listerine once
Oh you, oh you have bad breath
It smells like death
It smells like puke
I'm sure I'm not being rude
Oh but what is that you brewed
Your bad breath is the worst
I can’t hear what you say
Oh no
Whether it’s green or blue
That mouthwash becomes you
That’s why you’re now gargling loud
Is that that awful sound
Your breath still smells like the dump
Its smell always makes me jump

But that mouthwash runs deep
You know you might need all of it
Oh it smells much worse than your blister
Do you have to let it lister?
Do you have to, do you have to, do you have to let it lister?

Oh I caught the wind from you
I thought nothing was that bad
But it’s that bad, it’s that bad
Oh yeah, if you could get by
Rinsing out with Sprite
Instead of all of your booze
But that Korbel’s hardly used
What’s in your breath? Wish I knew
Maybe I’ll drink it with you

Your breath still makes me leap
Mouthwash combats the breath from sleep
I hear you popping out your blister
Do you have to let it lister?
Do you have to, do you have to, do you have to let it lister?

Your breath gives me the creeps
It may be just too bad to fix
Oh it lasts longer than your blister
Think you have to let it lister
Think you have to, think you have to, think you have to let it lister

You know they’ve got the Cool Mint too
So it can smell better than blisters
Yes you have to let it lister
Yeah you have to, yeah you have to let it lister
