"Teeth" as written by Taja Riley, Pete Wyoming Bender and Stefani Germanotta....
Don't be scared
I've done this before
Show me your teeth
Show me your teeth
Show me your teeth

Don't want no money (want your money)
That shit's is ugly
Just want your sex (want your sex)
Take a bite of my bad girl meat (bad girl meat)
Take a bite my me
Show me your teeth (let me see your mean)

Got no direction (no direction)
I need direction
Just got my vamp (got my vamp)

Take a bite of my bad girl meat (bad girl meat)
Take a bite of me boy
Show me your teeth (the truth is sexy)

Tell me something that'll save me
I need a man who makes me alright (man who makes me alright)
Tell me something that'll change me
I'm gonna love you with my hands tied

Show me your teeth (just tell me when)
Show me your teeth (open your mouth boy)
Show me your teeth (show me whatcha got)
Show me your teeth, teeth, teeth, teeth

Got no salvation (no salvation)
Got no salvation
Got no religion (no religion)
My religion is you
Take a bite of my bad girl meat (bad girl meat)
(Take a bite of me boy) show me your teeth
I'm a tough bitch

Got my addictions (my addictions)
And I love to fix 'em (and I love to fix 'em)
No one's perfect
Take a bite of my bad girl meat (bad girl meat)
(Take a bite of me boy) show me your teeth
I just need a little guidance

Tell me something that'll save me
I need a man who makes me alright (man who makes me alright)
Just tell me when it's alright
Tell me something that'll change me
I'm gonna love you with my hands tied

Show me your teeth (just tell me when)
Show me your teeth (open your mouth boy)
Show me your teeth (show me whatcha got)
Show me your teeth, teeth, teeth, teeth
Show me your teeth

How (my religion is you)
How (my religion is you)

Help need a man
Now show me your fangs (my religion is you)
Help need a man
Now show me your fangs (my religion is you)
Help need a man
Now show me your fangs (my religion is you)
Help need a man
Now show me your fangs
Help need a man
Now show me your fangs
Help need a man
Now show me your fangs
Help need a man
Now show me your fangs
Help need a man
Now show me your fangs

Tell me something that'll save me
I need a man who makes me alright (man who makes me alright)
Just tell me it's alright
Tell me something that'll change me
I'm gonna love you with my hands tied

Show me your teeth (just tell me when)
Show me your teeth (open your mouth boy)
Show me your teeth (show me whatcha got)
Show me your teeth teeth, teeth, teeth
Show me your teeth
It's not how big, it's how mean
How, how

It's not how big, it's how mean
Show me your teeth, show me your teeth
Show me your teeth, show me your teeth
Show me your teeth, open your mouth boy
Show me your teeth, show me your teeth
My religion is you
Show me your teeth, teeth, teeth, teeth
Show me your teeth, show me your teeth
I just need a little guidance
Show me your teeth, show me your teeth
Show me your teeth, show me your teeth
Show me your teeth, teeth, teeth, teeth

    General CommentI have two different comments I'd like to make about this song.

    First off, I have to agree with mimsycby. From one perspective, I interpret this song as naughty, passionate, rough intimacy. It's all about letting loose and just giving into pure carnal instinct, a.k.a. biting, scratching, animalistic sex. This song is so deliciously sexy and naughty, and even borderline S&M when she says "I'm gonna love you with my hands tied". Definitely my second favorite from The Fame Monster (my first is Speechless).

    Onto another completely different perspective. I'm quite surprised no one has mentioned this yet, because this is the first thing I thought of when I heard the song. In my personal opinion, I can totally envision the influence of vampires in this specific song. With vampires becoming so popular due to Twilight and other shows/books as of recently, just the reference of "teeth" alone gives me this sexy erotic image of vampires just going at it; biting at each other during sex & whatnot. The song itself has such a upbeat, jazzy, blue-sy, soulful vibe. Very reminiscent of music from Louisiana. In a way it reminds me of the vampires on the show True Blood. Just my opinion! If Lady GaGa ever made a music video to this song, I definitely think that she should take on a vampire theme and story line in it, because this song reeks of vampire references.

    All in all, one of the best on The Fame Monster! I love this song! Very well done!

    Song MeaningAs we all know, Gaga is both asexual and a virgin. This song delves into her fantasy life of dentistry, which pleases her like no genitals can. She imagines herself as a very experienced oral mechanic. The procedure taking place in the song is a routine cleaning, and Gaga slowly grows frustrated with her anxious patient, coaxing him as such:
    "Don't be scared
    I've done this before
    Show me your teeth"


    Gaga first disses her patients love-parts then, in a fit of hipsteria, ironically begs for sex from said patient:
    "That shit's is ugly
    Just want your sex (want your sex)"

    As a glimpse into the mindset behind her asexuality, Lady Gaga simply explains:
    "No one's perfect"

    Simply beautiful.

    General CommentAs soon as I heard this song I was so amazed by it!!!! It's so different from her other stuff, it just hit me right between the eyes and totally knocked me out! It's a great one to listen to in your car with the volume turned right up. I would describe it as dirty satanic gospel - absolutely incredible. And I think it's fairly obvious what it's about..........
