Long John Blues
I've got a dentist who's over seven feet tall Yes I've got a dentist who's over seven feet tall Long John they call him, and he answers every call Well I went to Long Johns office and told him the pain was killin' Yes I went to Long Johns office and told him the pain was killin' He told me not to worry, that my cavity just needed fillin' He said "when I start drillin', I'll have to give you novocaine" He said, "Yes, when I start drillin', I'll have to give you novocaine Cause ev'ry woman just can't stand the pain" He took out his trusted drill And he told me to open wide He said he wouldn't hurt me But he'd fill my hole inside Long John, Long John, you've got that golden touch You thrill me when you drill me, and I need you very much When he got through, he said "Baby that will cost you ten" Yes when he got through, he said "Baby that will cost you ten Six months from now, come back and see me again" Say you're supposed to see your dentist 'Bout twice a year, that's right But I think I feel it bobbin' Yes I'll go back there tonight Long John, Long John, don't ever move away Say I hope I keep on achin' so I can see you every day.
