The Lyrics

This parody song was created due to a true story of our friend Dave who went to yawn one day and then couldn't close his mouth. His mouth was stuck wide open. He wasn't really in pain but he confused and looked freakin ridiculous. We then had to drive him to the emergency room. Driving in the car with him to the Hospital was priceless, watching people looking at him at the stoplight with confusion in their face. While waiting he sat there like a goon with his mouth wide open. That's the true story but of course we had to exaggerate the story a little in the song, especially since our friend Dave always talks that he was so scared for his life when he got lockjaw.
There I was with my jaw open, no one was around
The pain in my mouth so frustrating as I tried to push it down
I remember that was the day that I almost died
So I called an ambulance and said you have to save my life

Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw

The doctor said I was a mess, he didn't know where to start
He said that he would do his best, and he even crossed his heart
You don't know what it's like, if you can't eat or drink
Put a softball in your mouth, then tell me what you think

Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw

You don't know what it's like...sitting in the emergency room
with kids laughing at you and throwing grapes in your mouth.

Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw

Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
Dave's got lockjaw, Dave's got lockjaw
We have a professional recorded version of this song on MP3. How can we post it on the site. It's a full band with drums, bass, guitars, and vocals.

This condition is called "trismus" in medicine, see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trismus and www.dental--health.com/faq_lockjaw.html. I have personally experienced that as well. In my case it was that I could not get my mouth opened (instead of closed). Eating that day with straw wasn't that funny.
