- how do they know how to do it?
MY GUMS GROW TEETH
My gums grow teeth inside my mouth
My gums grow teeth, I don’t know how
My soft gums make such hard teeth grow,
So please don’t ask me, I don’t know
They just grow up from underneath
These little tiny shiny teeth
I think I’ve got enough, but gee, ...
My gums grow teeth, they don’t ask me.
I like my teeth, don’t get me wrong,
They help me smile, and they’re strong,
They chop my food, they help me chew
If they were yours, you’d like them too!
Sometimes my teeth hurt when they grow,
My Grandpa’s teeth come out, you know?
His gums don’t grow teeth anymore, ...
So Grandpa buys teeth at the store.
So I’ll just grow my own, I guess
I’ve got no choice, ... my gums don’t rest,
They just keep growing teeth, it’s true, ...
That’s all my gums know how to do.
