The Lyrics

First, I'm sorry I was able to choose only one decade for the song. Moving on, the drums that open "Give Me Novacaine" made me wonder how hard it would be to mash the lyrics up with "When the Levee Breaks." I had to make changes, and the Levee lyrics I found online were helpful, but Robert Plant and company can make more than one syllable sound like just one; some syllables may be audible only at high volumes; and the lyrics' source(s) might be eclectic, as WtLB goes at least as far back as Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie. Although some interpretations of the song may be especially depressing, I've tried to focus more on the words themselves simply as words, and if I'm making any psychological, sociological, or philosophical statements, I'm not consciously aware of them. I sought out a mashup section here at the site but was unable to find one, but I might not have spent enough time looking. I considered submitting it to the Fragments section, but I honestly don't think the following is a set of better lyrics, and there's probably even more humor in trying to sing the original lyrics to a different melody than there is in the following lyrics themselves. The above being stated, do not hesitate to try to improve on the following if the mood strikes.
Would you take away sensations here inside;
Bittersweet migraine that's stuck inside my head;
It's a throbbing ache here inside my mind.
Outside both of my body and my mind,
Kiss the imps far away from my dreams.
I'm starting to feel that everything will be all right;
Jimmy says all is well.
Drain the swelling pressure;
This sensation's overpowering.
Would you kiss me goodnight?
Make me feel all right,
Say I won't feel a thing.
Let there be some Novacaine.
I cannot take this feeling that's in my head;
No, I cannot take the feeling that's in my head.
I need Novacaine, Mama, the Novacaine.
Pressure built, caused me to sit and moan;
Pressure built, caused me to sit and moan.
Thinkin' about Novacaine and crashing at home.
Give me, give me Novacaine.
Give me Novacaine,
Even if I'll be worthless...
For a while... for a while now... for a while... for a while now...
For a while... for a while... for a while... for a while...
For a while... for a while now... for a while... for a while now...
For a while... for a while now... for a while............................
Some of the music of Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie was at YouTube the last time I checked. If the site's maintainers even suspect that mashups (as opposed to parodies) do not enjoy legal protection and do not post the above mashup, I understand, and all is well.
