my dental situation

is entirely out of hand
my smile an imitation
of a jack o' lantern man
 
my gums are all receding
and they're rotten underneath
i know that i'll be needing me
some tijuana teeth
 
there's dental joints, extensive
all across the USA
but they're too darn expensive
so to mexico i'll stray
 
and when i give the say-so
i will have a brand new grin
for just one hundred pesos
they will shove those things right in
 
and i will be the envy
of the company i keep
and not pay a pretty penny
cause in mexico they're cheap
 
its essential to my ego
that my smile is not a fright
and so gracias, amigo
for my rows of pearly white
 
now, i'm running for the border
for i know they will bequeath
i'll be putting in my order
for some tijuana teeth
