  • Song Lyrics:
    When I was young and just a bad little kid.
    My mama noticed funny things I did.
    Like shooting puppies with a BB gun.
    I'd poison guppies, and when I was done,
    I'd find a pussycat and bash in it's head,
    Thats when my mama said

    (Backup Singers) What did she say?

    She said, my boy I think some day,
    will find a way,
    To make your natural tendencies pay.

    You'll be a dentist. (You'll be a dentist)
    You have a talent for causing great pain.
    Son, be a dentist. (Son, be a dentist)
    People will pay you to be inhumane. (Inhumane)
    Your temperment's wrong for the priesthood.

    Son, be a dentist, you'll be a success.

    (Backup Singer)
    Here he is, folks, the leader of the plaque,
    Watch him suck up that gas, oh, my God.
    He's a dentist and he'll never ever be any good.

    (patient)Oh, that hurts! Wait, I'm not numb.

    Ah shut up, open wide, here I come.

    I am your dentist,
    and I enjoy the career that I picked. (Love it)
    I'm your dentist, and I get off on the pain I inflict. (Really love it)
    I thrill when I drill a bicuspid (Bicuspid)
    and swell when they tell me I'm mal-adjusted. (dentist)
    And though it may cause my patients to stress. (To stress)
    Somewhere, somewhere in heaven above me, I know, I know that my mama's proud of me.
    (Spoken)"Oh, mama"
    'Cause I'm a dentist, and a success.

    Say AHHHH!
    Say AHHHHH!!

    Now Spit!
