I think the flip side was: "Does The Spearmint Lose It's Flaver, ON The Bedpost Overnight!"

Checked YouTube, to no avail, though. I learned this song 60 years ago at Camp Sea Gull on the coast of NC. Sure wish I could remember the verses. Help me, Rhonda. Help, help me. Rhonda.

OK. Good news and bad news. A fellow on the www was kind enough to send me an mp3 of the song. I will try to transliterate it this week--that is before Sunday. It was done by another fellow who reverses the second and third stanzas. However, best I can do.

What a labor of love!! Thanks you so much. I'll tell all the women in False Teeth Valley about you. I'm sure you'll have quite a following. Will you be a-postin' the lyrics on this forum?

Yes. I was about to start the transposition now and was hoping you hadn't disappeared. May have it for tomorrow. I'm at a friend's place in Montreal and so using a borrowed computer.

This is from a performer named Robert Lunn. The fellow who sent me the mp3 said that he had only this version and not that done by H and J. And, he thinks the second and third stanza are reversed as compared to the way H and J did them.


Tooth-Pickin' Time in False Teeth Valley

There's a valley satisfyin'
Down in sunny Caroline
Where the people wear their false teeth by the score
They ain't got no teeth to eat
Only cornbread and fat beef
'cause they had 'em pulled out forty years before

(Refrain) When it's tooh pickin' time in False Teeth Valley
All the ladies get their toothpicks out at night
After supper in the evenin' by the moonlight
They pick their store-bought teeth with all their might

Once for supper I was late
But they didn't hesitate
They just went right on tuh eatin' all the grub
But there's one thing that I hate
I had lost my upper plate
And the bottom one was worn down to a nub.

Refrain

Music break

There's a girl named Lucy Locket
Wears her false teeth in her pocket
Too darn big to eat with don't you see
When I take her out to dine
Why I always lend her mine
'Cause I had them tailor-made for her and me

Refrain

END


I apologize. I cannot make out the two words where the ---- ---- are in the song. I'll run the mp3 by a friend tomorrow and see what he thinks.

I thank Mr Mueller for the mp3.

PS I have an upper plate, and having darned near flushed them down the toilet once, I understand where this song is comin' from. Best to you, and I'll post the two missing words if I can figure 'em out.

If a clone would be kind enough to clean up my unnecessary posts, that would be cool. Thanks.
I deleted some posts, fixed a couple typos and stuck a "Lyr Add" in the title because it's not gonna come up on a title search iffn it's in the name block. -Mod

My mistake. Thank you, Mod.

At the risk of pickin' too much, here's a couple more verses:

Kissin' Lucy nice one day there
In the barn upon the hay is
When I realized that she was 'bout to sneeze.
Then I heard a loud "achoo!"
And her false teeth, out they flew;
Bit me hard and left big scars on both my knees.

Once on Halloween ol' Lucy
Soaked her teeth in something juicy,
'Cause she always kept her pearlies sparklin' clean.
But instead of lighter fluid
She thought glow paint ought to do it;
When she smiled that night she made the children scream.
