The More Teeth Missin' The Better For Kissin'

©2015 Words & Music by Steve Pullara

Song note: Smiles will come and go through our entire lives. Enjoy following this one. There are all kinds of families with many types of loving parents. This song is about the circle of life through the love of a father to his daughter. He uses a traditional term of endearment in these lyrics to help get her get through some tough times. Dad lets his young daughter know of his unconditional love regardless of any missing teeth, wearing braces, peer alienation due to appearances or bullying. As they travel through life's trials, he gets to see his child grow up into a self empowered confident woman who moves away from home. The song's plot makes a full circle of life, but you have to listen to hear how it concludes.

 

I had me a little girl who wanted the tooth fairy to come
‘till she realized she’d have a mouth full of gums.


She asked, “Daddy will you still love me if my smile went away?”
and I said, “The more teeth missin’ the better for kissin’ and baby,
let me kiss you now.”


“The more teeth missin’ the better for kissin’ and baby,
let me kiss you now.”


The Kids were so cruel to my daughter at school when she wore her braces the very first day.

 

The girls teased her a lot and the boy she liked, he’d turn away.
She asked, “Daddy will you still love me if my smile went away?”
“I tried to do my best, but it hurt a lot. Dad it was a pretty rough day.”


I said, "The more teeth missin’ the better for kissin’ and baby,
let me kiss you now. “


I said hey, “The more teeth missin’ the better for kissin’ and baby,
let me kiss you now. “


Well the braces came off, she wasn’t lonely anymore and a boy asked her out with a knock at the door.


He took her on a date. They came home late and his kiss swept her off the floor.


I said, “The more teeth missin’ the better for kissin’ and baby,
let me look at you now.”


Ah, “The more teeth missin’ the better for kissin’ and baby,
look at you now.”


My baby married that boy and our daughter she moved away.

But, now I’m a proud Grandpa who got a phone call just the other day.


It said, “Grandpa, will still love me with a mouth full of gums?”
I said, “Grandpa has teeth missing too, let’s wait for the tooth fairy comes. “


And we sang: “The more teeth missin’ the better for kissin’ and baby

Let me kiss you now.

 

“The more teeth missin’ the better for kissin’ and baby

Let me kiss you now.
