  1. Toothbrush Dance

From the recording Still Learning

Lyrics

The dentist says, to protect my grin it's
Necessary to brush two minutes
Though that seems long, I need my teeth strong
To stop tooth germies from advancing
I must keep my toothbrush dancing
So I'll start in the front on the top
And the brush goes
Up and down and up and down and up and down and up
Then scootch a little to the side
And again go
Up and down and up and down and up and down and up
Get the germies where they try to hide
And to the back teeth!
Up and down and up and down and up and down and up
Then turn the brush around
And get the inside of those upper teeth with the same old up and down.
Back to the front, and
Up and down and up and down and up and down and up
Then scootch to the other side
And then go
Up and down and up and down and up and down and up
Get the germies so they can't hide
And to the back teeth!
Up and down and up and down and up and down and up
Once more, turn the brush around
And get the inside of those upper teeth
With the same old up and down.
Done with the top, proceed to the bottom
Repeat the procedures now that you got 'em . . .
Up and down and up and down and up and down and up
Now scootch again to the side
And then go
Up and down and up and down and up and down and up
Get the germies so they can't hide
And to the back again
Up and down and up and down and up and down and up
Once more, turn the brush around
And get the inside of those bottom teeth
With the same old up and down.
Back to the front again!
Up and down and up and down and up and down and up
One more time, scootch to the side
And then go
Up and down and up and down and up and down and up
Too bad, germies!  You can't hide!
And to the back again,
Up and down and up and down and up and down and up
One last time turn the brush around
And get the inside of those very last teeth
With the up and down and up and down.
Toothbrush dancing's so much fun
My routine is almost done
Take some water, just a bit,
Swish it 'round, rinse and spit!  That's it!
