 once upon a time

On the Antrim Road in Belfast there’s this  place
Called cavity corner right on the front of the road
When you walk in the door what do you think you see?
All these beautiful smiling women.
Wouldn’t think you’re at the dentist.
I was there this morning, and what do you know?
I didn’t feel any pain. You may ask how come,
as dentists aren’t renowned for painlessness.
Well let me explain
First off there’s all those cheerful smiles when you walk in.
Then 'ah ha' I hear you exclaim, here comes the pain,
As I explained, they treat you so tenderly
One thing you never feel is pain.
At the end I exclaimed is that it?
Yes, 'all over' the charming dentist explained
Her assistant handed me a drink
Please swill out your mouth, but I asked what about all this pain?

What pain? You may feel a little tender in cavity corner
But the care and tenderness of the cheerful smiles dispels any pain.
Next time you need a dentist without the pain
Then trundle along to cavity corner on the front of the Antrim Road.
