Jandek – You Painted Your Teeth lyrics

I got my knife [2x]
If you want to breathe, baby
Don't paint your teeth [2x]
I've got my gun [2x]
If you want to laugh, baby
Don't paint your teeth
Don't paint 'em
You don't paint your teeth
Your teeth are white
And they'll stay that way
If you don't paint 'em
Don't paint your teeth
Don't paint your teeth, mama
Don't paint your teeth
I painted my teeth
I said I painted my teeth
You painted your teeth
And you think you're fine
But you gotta die
You gotta die
Six black horses and a coal black hearse [2x]
There's a black body
It's got a big black shroud
But the only thing coming
It's your teeth, mama
It's your teeth
You're going to go to heaven
Everything's going to be white
White white white white white white, baby
But not your teeth
You painted your teeth [2x]
