Subject: Lyr Add: (ALL I WANT FOR...IS) MY TWO FRONT TEETH
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 02 Nov 03 - 06:19 PM

(ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS) MY TWO FRONT TEETH
(Don Gardner, 1946.)

Everybody stops and stares at me.
These two teeth are gone as you can see.
I don't know just who to blame for this catastrophe!
But my one wish on Christmas Eve is as plain as it can be!

CHORUS: All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth,
My two front teeth, see my two front teeth!
Gee, if I could only have my two front teeth,
Then I could with you "Merry Christmas."

It seems so long since I could say,
"Sister Susie sitting on a thistle."
Gosh, oh gee, how happy I'd be
If I could only whistle! (Th-h-h-h-h!) CHORUS.

[Alternative version of last 2 lines:]
Ev'ry time I try to speak,
All I do is whistle. (S-s-s-s-s!)

[Recorded by the Andrews Sisters, The Chipmunks, Nat King Cole, Spike Jones and His City Slickers, and many others.]

Subject: Lyr Add:ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS MY UPPER PLATE
From: Jim Dixon

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS MY UPPER PLATE
(As sung by Homer and Jethro)

All I want for Christmas is my upper plate.
I'm losin' weight without my plate.
I got my lowers but I need my upper plate,
So I can eat my Christmas turkey.

I left 'em in a glass o' water by my side.
When I awoke, I nearly died.
I hope the guy who took 'em will be satisfied,
'Cause I can't eat my Christmas turkey.

I used to eat corn on the cob
And little bitty pickled green tomaters,
But Christmas Day, all I can say
Is "Pass the mashed potaters."

Won't somebody tell me what I'm gonna do?
My poor old gums are black and blue.
The turkey's on the table but I just can't chew,
And this ain't a very merry Christmas.

Christmas candy shore is hard.
I can't even chew it just a little.
But my fav'rite one of all
Is good ol' peanut brutal.

[Spoken:]
--Homer, that's "brittle."
--Buddy, without my upper plate, it is "ba-rutal."

So if you got an extry set that's laid away,
I'll borrow them for Christmas day.
You can send 'em to me care of RCA,
And I will have a merry Christmas.

Oops! I forgot to credit The Record Lady's All-Time Country Favorites, Country Christmas Page, for the sound file from which I made the Homer & Jethro transcription. Lyrics to the original version are available at several places on the Internet.

Stan Boreson also recorded ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS (IS MY UPPER PLATE). It is track #02 on his album "I Yust Go Nuts at Christmas." You can hear his version at YouTube. The lyrics are nearly the same as those recorded by Homer & Jethro, allowing for the fact that he sings in a Scandinavian accent. Also, instead of "You can send 'em to me care of RCA" he sings "You can send 'em to me and I'll be OK."

I knocked out my two top front teeth when I was just a baby trying to walk and fell against the piano leg, from what I understand. Didn't get my adult teeth up there until second grade, so...I heard this song a lot as I was growing up! Thanks for posting the lyrics.

As a Brit, reminds me of Max Bygraves' version (especially as he owned a restaurant in the village I grew up in, and his son went to the same primary school as I did).
