Subject: Lyr Req: Loudon Wainwright III and Flossing
From: Fossil
Date: 15 Nov 12 - 10:36 PM

In an injudicious moment today, having been scaled and polished, I mentioned to my hygienist that I knew of a singer/songwriter, Loudon Wainwright III, who was very hot on flossing his teeth and had written songs about it.

This of course elicited a request for more information and here I seem to have run up against a blank. I have seen LW in concert several times and distinctly recall flossing being mentioned during his act, but I can't find any songs.

Help! Over to you, 'catters! Any help will be deeply appreciated and will be rewarded by a pearly white smile from me!

Fossil, sorry there's no line breaks. Never heard the song. The lyrics are from

I'M ALRIGHT
(Loudon Wainwright III)

Woke up this morning, didn't feel that bad
Last night was definitely not one of the worst I ever had
Ate a nice dinner, drank a few drinks
Didn't think about you baby no matter what you think
Went back to my hotelroom I went straight to bed
Didn't moan, didn't cry and I did not wish I was dead
I'm alright
I'm alright
Yeah I'm alright baby
I'm alright without you

Woke up this morning, didn't have the blues
So I put on my tubesocks, laced up my running shoes
Went down to the reservoir to jog a mile or two
Didn't take about our love and I wasn't missing you
Went back to my hotelroom took a few phonecalls
Clean sheets on a made up bed and artwork on the wall
I'm allright
I'm allright
Yeah I'm alright baby
I'm alright without you

Woke up this afternoon and I sat up in the bed
There was a gnawing in my gut and a poundin' in my head
So I went to the bathroom, to the medicinechest
There was sleepin'pills and razorblades and all the rest
But I was in control baby I was so relaxed
I found myself my dental floss, my favourite kind - unwaxed
I'm alright
I'm alright
Yeah I'm alright baby
I'm alright without you

I listened to the recording on Spotify, and I have a few corrections:

I'M ALRIGHT
(Loudon Wainwright III)

I woke up this morning, didn't feel that bad;
Last night was definitely not one of the worst I'd ever had.
Ate a nice dinner, drank a few drinks,
Didn't miss you baby, no matter what you think.
Went back to my hotel room, I went straight to bed;
Didn't moan, didn't cry, and I did not wish I was dead.
I'm alright
I'm alright
Hey I'm alright baby
I'm alright without you

I woke up this morning, and I didn't have the blues,
So I pulled on my tubesocks, I laced up my running shoes;
Went down to the reservoir to jog a mile or two.
Didn't take about our love and I wasn't missing you,
Went back to my hotel room took a few phone calls;
Clean sheets on a made-up bed and artwork on the wall.
I'm alright
I'm alright
Yeah I'm alright baby
I'm alright without you

Woke up this afternoon and I sat up in the bed;
There was a gnawing in my gut and a poundin' in my head.
So I went to the bathroom, to the medicine chest,
There was razorblades and sleepin' pills and all the rest;
But I was in control baby, I was so relaxed.
I found myself my dental floss, my favorite kind - unwaxed.
I'm alright
I'm alright
Yeah I'm alright baby
I'm alright without you

Joe,
I still think it's "Didn't think about our love..."
It makes more sense too.
