The Lyrics

Bridge over Gum That's Rotten

When you're fearing
Docs dental,
Who will cheer, "Open wide!
Suction dries out all."

On the right side,
Below the cusp
The gum has been worn down.
Place a bridge over gum that's rottenó
First we yank the crown.
Yes, a bridge over gum that's rottenó
First we yank the crown.

Now we've ground it out,
You can smell the burning meat.
Enamel once was hard;
Now it's like compost goo.

We'll make the partó
Molybdenum;
It'll never break down.
Place a bridge over gum that's rottenó
First we yank the crown.
Yes, a bridge over gum that's rottenó
First we yank the crown.

Drilled those silver fillsó
Merc' oxide.
Above the gum, they shinedó
We reamed 'em out anyway.

They no more shine.
To bolster cement,
We're nailing in a spline.
With that bridge over gum that's rotten,
Your jaws can squeeze fine.
With that bridge over gum that's rotten,
Your jaws can squeeze fine.

Oooh! I hate the suction hose! Is it just my imagination, or were dentists a lot less 'intrusive' when I was a kid? Anyway, excellent parody.
