Ache

(E. Stefani)
No Doubt (1992)

Woke up this morning and felt not too cool
‘Cause every time I tried to make my mouth move
The pain I’m having is so discomforting
Please make this suffering go away

I told my mom what I was feeling
And how long I’ve been dealing with it
Knew it was coming, but didn’t know how soon
She said I’ve reached another adolescent monsoon

Oooo, ahh, the pain is tremendous
Why can’t I take it like a man?
Oooo, ahh, the pain is horrendous
Why don’t you lend a helpin’ hand?

He was a well-educated man
Had his degree in medicine
I noticed his hairy hands
He was a very, very hairy man
He looked right down in
Shook his head, then said
“These teeth must be pulled right away”

Oooo, ahh, the pain is tremendous
Why can’t I take it like a man?
Oooo, ahh, the pain is horrendous
Why don’t you lend a helpin’ hand?

He turned around, rolled up his sleeve
I rolled my eyes, then suddenly
A horrible pain grew, the next thing that I knew
The doctor pulled my wisdom teeth…out!

Well along with my teeth, my money also left me
As he made out the bill, I was moaning
Oooo, ahh, the pain is tremendous
Where the hell is my prescription…of codeine?

But when will I speak?
How long until my mouth feels natural?
How long will they bleed?
When will they heal?
Where’s a real meal?

How do you feel?
How do you feel?
How do you feel?
How do you feel?

I feel good
I feel great
There’s no pain
There’s no ache
Just let me recuperate

Because the codeine has left me drowsy
Leave me be, just let me sleep
