dental torture blues for writers cramp
Sitting in the dental chair

Undergoing dental surgery

While the dentist probes

And tortures me

With his instruments of pain



The Frank Zappa song plays over and over

The torture never stops

The torture never stops



And I think of the mad dentist

In Little House of Horrors

The Jack Nicolson character

Who screams Pain is good



As he assaults his patients

Doing root canals

Without anesthesia



And so I endure the torture

Of the dentist

In the vain hope

I can save my teeth



Until the next time

I undergo dental torture

The song faces away

And I slowly recover



Then as I leave

I am confronted with the bill

And the song roars back to life



The torture never stops

the torture never stops
