The Lyrics

Well, I saw my dentist
Dr. Schwartz, at 5th...and Broadway
For that... pain on my left side
It was flaring up when I would chew food

Now I never... really felt untethered
When I'd sit in that big old chair
I was always... not scared

But now, something just seemed amiss
Because when he shoved... on his gloves
The guy, as sure as I breathe,
He was stinkin' ass drunk as a... dentist could be

What did he do?
Shot novocaine into me
Numbed up my spit glands...not just the gums
They're damaged... forever

Now I'm drooling!
Drooling all over the place!
I'm suing... that damned shitheel, getting tough!
I need... 5 million bucks to help me
From drooling... my shirts are so wet... in-deed!

Hope this isn't based on a true story (for you or anybody really... That would suck!) What can I say other than this parody drools!

I was waiting to see what you rhymed up with "truly", and "drooling" matched up perfectly! This was really well done and it could definitely be sung to the soft ballad music of the OS. Nice work!

(Artistry) Great idea, but not really well executed, IMO. It read like mostly set up for the "drooling" part, so maybe if the dentist had screwed-up a lot of things instead of just the accidental novacaine overdose, or maybe it's the OS working against you, or maybe I'm just not "getting it", who knows, the point is that I didn't really "feel" this one, if that makes sense. And the mumbly nature of the OS made it hard to discern the pacing, so I'm at a loss.

Visit to the dentist are always hell, not something one would like to deal with.

(Artistry) I'm on the same page as TCOP. It didn't really grab me either. It didn't go anywhere for me. It seemed like a pointless buildup for a single joke. I really think this OS limited you too much. I just didn't really get anything out of this. Sorry.
