lyrics

dental tools across the floor lie inert and flecked with blood
I see, and you’re humming while you wait
they call you up and mispronounce your name
so it’s all the sweeter
he was our boy, now he’s a dentist, our little champion
now spit, go wash your face
your next appointment is in four months’ time
he was our boy now he’s a dentist our little champion
our big mistake
what did we ever do? Raised him right paid him attention
how many times can he stop? How many days how many months?
stop.
