The Lyrics

This is describing the first few days of having braces. My mouth isn't sore anymore like it is in the song, but my braces keep getting messed up.
Looks like my teeth are gonna need some straightening
What kind of solution lies in the boundaries of dentistry?

Well, we talk about it, talk about it, talk about it, talk about it
Talk about, talk about, talk about braces

Just put them on
Just put them on
Just put them on

Now my teeth just hurt all the time
But in a few days, I'll be fine
Just remember the end result
Do not focus on the tumult

Chewing seems to be a real chore
Eating isn't fun anymore
Just these first few days that I hate
Well, at least I will lose some weight

Can't find any food that isn't too hard for me
Don't know what to do, because I'm geting more and more hungry
Well, I try to eat it, try to eat it, try to eat it, try to eat it
But it just seems that nothing will do right now

My teeth feel a lot better now
But this wire keeps coming out
I can't ever get it back in
To the orthodontist again
Although the syllable pacing is perfected (or at least close), it sounds weird when you try to sing it sometimes.

I had braces for a long time, so I definitely can relate to this one.
