From the recording Simple Dance (2015)

Inspired by a dental visit, the words “tap & grind” uttered by my dentist (temporary cap seating) almost begged to be made into a song. During the follow-up visit the dental assistant’s instructions “squeeze & hold” (permanent cap seating) sealed the deal. The motorized dental tool audio samples were taken from my dentist’s examination room. The flute-like, organ sound is actually tuned drills.

Lyrics

Tap and grind, squeeze and hold
Put the drill, in the cavity hole
Tap and grind. Tap and grind.
Look at my teeth. Give them a fill.
For the dental health. Yes, I am will-ing.
Tap and grind. Tap and grind.
With a big lead apron, laid on my chest
With a weight and comfort, put me at rest
Tap and grind. Tap and grind.
With a big steel needle, do numb me up
In the procedure, minimize my su-ffering
Tap and grind. Tap and grind.
In the chair, reclining back
Repair my dentals, sealing up the cracks
I hear the drill, breaking down my molars
I hear the music, cranking out the oldies
Tap and grind, squeeze and hold
Grind up my teeth, then make me whole
Tap and grind. Tap and grind.
