Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

I wish this could be a bit more pop punk!

Almost named this 'Wobbly Teeth' but I decided I liked the imperative better. Now I'm not so sure.

Lyrics: 

Keep my trap occupied
I crack a joke
I sip a beer, I slip a smile
I want a kiss, I want a smoke

I want to whisper your name
But that feels too loud
I wanna be yelling your name
But it don’t quite feel enough to shout

Give it to me, ooh ah, wobbly teeth
I’m gonna come, gonna come undone
Ooh ah, biting my lip
So I don’t have to bite my tongue

Ooh ah, wobbly teeth
I’m gonna come undone
Ooh ah, biting my lip
So I don’t have to bite my tongue

Can you watch what I say
I’m just gonna sneak away
Cover up your glass, babe
If you’re not gonna stay (Please stay! Please stay!)

I want to whisper my intentions
But that feels too loud
I wanna be paying more attention
But my interest has dropped out

Give it to me, ooh ah, wobbly teeth
I’m gonna come, gonna come undone
Ooh ah, biting my lip
So I don’t have to bite my tongue

Ooh ah, wobbly teeth
I’m gonna come undone
Ooh ah, biting my lip
So I don’t have to bite my tongue

I never pretended
I had volume control
That kind of indiscretion’s printed on your soul

And you’ll never figure out how to get your record clean
‘Cos it won’t be wiped when you hit eighteen

Give it to me
Ooh ah, wobbly teeth
I’m gonna come, gonna come undone
Ooh ah, biting my lip
So I don’t have to bite my tongue

Ooh ah, wobbly teeth
I’m gonna come undone
Ooh ah, biting my lip
So I don’t have to bite my tongue

Give it to me, ooh ah, wobbly teeth
I’m gonna come, gonna come undone
Ooh ah, biting my lip
So I don’t have to bite my tongue

Ooh ah, wobbly teeth
I’m gonna come undone
Ooh ah, biting my lip
So I don’t have to bite my tongue

i like wobbly teeth. it has more personality than bite my tongue, and i think people who would like this song would be more drawn to that quiry title than the more common bite my tongue, which suggests a . more conventional rock song. the chorus lyric is excellent, and your vocal delivery brings out the best in the melody/ the arrangement is subtle and propulsive.

Wobbly teeth is a great ear-catching title. This is a catchy tune and an enjoyable arrangement. Nice work all around.

Looking at the lyrics...first two verse very nice...ok the ooh ah is pulling hard...nice hook. Yeah, the wobbly teeth are quite visual as well. The next section about the record won't be wiped clean when you are 18 is interesting. Yeah, the chorus and hook is really the key to this and I'm really looking forward to the audio...hold. Guitar intro...sounds good...vocals now...can clearly understand the lyrics...ooh ah...wobbly teeth...I'm gonna come undone...soothing vocals...good melody...background vocals now...nice pause...chorus again now...catchy...you'll never figure out how to get your record clean....18....bite my tongue...love the ooh ah the best...nice sounding guitar instruments...ok, it's over. Yeah, I like it...great job on this.
