"Trenchmouth" as written by and Melora "rasputina" Creager....
Yeah, he was a big landowner
He was a bad mouth breather
But you can see his station wagon stand alone
Woulda, coulda, we shoulda known

He was a failed cropduster
I am his little sister
He was a whistleblower for the F.D.A.
Maybe was them sent him away
He was a football player
He didn't have a lot to say

That guy's a lousy actor
He was a hard-core cracker
He wore a trenchcoat, and waved a Dixie flag
But he's my brother so I brag
Don't be no dark naysayer
So they all said he was a fag

He had a really big trenchmouth
When we were living way down south
He had a really big trenchmouth

It's on the edge of nowhere
No way for them to go there
I know I'm not much help
But here is where I'll stay
I'm hoping they'll find him someday
I should put up some flyers
Can you think of another way?

He had a really big trenchmouth
When we were living way down south
Then he up and disappeared
He just left his car up here

He had a really big trenchmouth
When we were living way down south
He had a really big trenchmouth

Nobody seems to know why he
Would disappear just leaving me here
On a dirty hill for all time
Me and the pinetree I stand behind

He had a really big trenchmouth
When we were living way down south
He had a really big trenchmouth

    General CommentThis is quoted from Porcy and Melly's Rasputina site at members.tripod.com/~corset_strings/rasputina/… people had pewter plates, they had trenchers - a piece of wood with the middle scooped out like a bowl. Trenchers were never washed and a lot of times worms got into the wood. After eating off wormytrenchers, they would get "trench mouth."


    Trench mouth is actually a gum infection, that appeared in the early 1900's. It's scientific name is Vincent's Angina or Infection after the french bacteriologist Jean Hyacinthe Vincent. Vincent's Infection, which appeared around 1922 is a progressive painful disease of the mouth that is marked esp. by dirty gray ulceration of the mucous membranes, spontaneous hemorrhaging of the gums, and a foul odor to the breath and that is associated with the presence of large numbers of a bacillus and a spirochete in the lesions.

    Whatever that means."
