The Lyrics

Oh, Bruce... Bruce, Bruce, Bruce...
Look into the light. And now open wide, so that your smile will look right
Look into the light. And now open wide, so we can straighten out your bite
Look into the light. And now open wide, so that your smile will look right

Waiting room is boring, patients all are snoring
to the elevator song
Distant scream doesn't seem-(to)-wake up any from their dream.
I know it won't be long
I was willing and distilling, waiting for my filling.
I'd skip this waiting around
With my head on a molding, holding and folding
the TIME magazine that I had found

'Will the next person please come around'

Won't you please...
Look into the light. And now open wide, so that your smile will look right
Look into the light. And now open wide, so we can straighten out your bite
Look into the light. And now open wide, so that your smile will look right
Look into the light. And now open wide, so we can straighten out your bite

She started to poke me with some really sharp thingy
Said, 'Could you give me a break'
She showed a needle to me that was really long
'What is wrong? This will stop the ache'
The X-ray display had clearly shown my tooth decay
so the doc came back inside
She made my gummy numby as I asked, 'What's fummy, hummy?'
and told me I should open up wide

told me I should open up wide

Can't help but...
Look into the light. And now open wide, so that your smile will look right
Look into the light...

I got drilled and I soon would get billed
She's gonna bill me for my bite
She's gonna bill me...for my bite

(There is a solo here that would have additional dentistry sound effects added in)
(Example: air sound would be replaced by the sound of that sucker thing they put in your mouth)

But Mama, what's gingivitis?
But Mama, what's gingivitis?
Mama always told me I should floss between my teeth and my gums
But Mama, what's gingivitis?

Some tooth care polar-bear giving me unpleasant stares, creature in a vest
A red pair of underwear worn atop his white-ish hair telling me to brush with Crest
While they repair anywhere, I fall off unconscious.
Why do I take that chance
What a big scare, right there awaking in the Dentist's chair
to find that I had no pants

(Just saying 'Repeats' right here is an understatement, but you get the idea)

I got drilled and I soon would get billed
She's gonna bill me for my bite
...Springsteen, Springsteen, Springsteen...

Interesting twist at the end. You must have an HMO dentist. I think this is one of your best so far.

Very funny, 2nz...great work!

Thanks a lot, Rick. I felt so violated that day, but I just can't stay mad at someone who gives out free, flavored dental floss.

feb 04 sotm--not the best Blinded By The Light parody I have read. (Spaff.Com takes that honor)

(SOTM FEB) See above, fives restored, you may now rinse.

(SOTM FEB) I´ll have to agree with Mrs Agrimorfee, this is good, but entering it the month after Spaff won with a parody to the same tune is kinda like drilling a hole for it... :-)

Hmm... why did I assume that Agrimorfee is a Mrs? I can´t answer that and his/hers bio doesn´t say.

Funny look at what most dental patients go through; yes, the original song has been parodied many times, but you've done a great job with the rhymes and pacing. Fives all round!

(SOTM) Funny inventive parody.

I know how irritating it is to get comments like "so-and-so's parody was better than this," so I apologize for a couple of the foregoing comments. A wise man (or a fool - I forget which) once said that "Blinded by the Light" is the parodist's Mount Everest. I must say that you and your dentist (Tenzing Norgay, DDS) have scaled it breathtakingly. I particularly liked the rhymes in the first verse, the "gummy" line, "what's gingivitis," and, of course, the punchline. Great stuff, Oh Looney One.

2nz - Excellent job here. clever rhyming - good story continuity, too. 5's...

It is quite a tricky song to do - I enjoyed this more than the usual trip to the dentist, I must say ;-)

Hey! I would've sworn I commented on this one but I guess not. Very good, and thanks for reminding me, I gotta do that Foghat "Fluoride" parody.

Good one 2nz. You have reminded me of what I have been avoiding (and why!)

The tooth can be painful. Had to say that. Good job, really liked it a lot
2nz - January 28, 2005 - Report this comment
Man, way overdue thanks to everybody for supporting my dental misadventure, or missing denture, or something.

Spaff: No apology needed. It sucks to get comments like 'so and so's was better' because I can't do much with criticism like that, but I don't blame you. I just find it kinda funny that I beat you to doing 'Blinded by the Light' by 6 months and yours still managed to beat mine into the lime-light. Would SOTM FEBRUARY have been different if it had taken place in March instead of September? Like sands in the hour-glass, so are the days of our lives... and I could care less anyway. Look at all the comments I have now!

re-read this after drwk131's comment - having now joined the "blinded by the light" club, I've got a bit of extra appreciation for this one. Lucky you didn't say this was the '80s, or you might have had a comment from the Decayed Police ;-)
