The Toothpaste Blues

by Mel Rosenberg - מל רוזנברג

the toothpaste blues brothers. Mel Rosenberg


My wife is gonna leave me

She says my breath’s a curse,

My teeth are urine yellow,

My gums a whole lot worse,

a monkey with bad teeth

I got the toothpaste blues

From my molars to my toe

If my teeth ain’t white by Friday

My old lady’s gonna go.

a horse with bad teeth

I brush ’em every morning

I brush ’em every night

I brush ’em when the moon’s out

but I just can’t get ’em white

Girl Brushing Teeth

I clean ’em with a chisel,

I sweep ’em with a broom,

I gargle twice with turpentine,

My mouth still smells like doom.

I sweep

I got the toothpaste blues

From my molars to my toe

If my teeth ain’t right by Friday

My old woman’s gonna go.
