OH I WISH I’D LOOKED AFTER ME TEETH:

OH I WISH I’D LOOKED AFTER ME TEETH POEM BY:- PAM AYRES

THE POEM:

THE POEM Oh, I wish I’d looked after me teeth, And spotted the dangers beneath All the toffees I chewed, And the sweet sticky food. Oh, I wish I’d looked after me teeth

PowerPoint Presentation:

I wish I’d been that much more willin ’ When I had more tooth there than fillin ’ To give up gobstoppers, From respect to me choppers, And to buy something else with me shillin ’.

PowerPoint Presentation:

When I think of the lollies I licked And the liquorice allsorts I picked, Sherbet dabs, big and little, All that hard peanut brittle, My conscience gets horribly pricked .

PowerPoint Presentation:

My mother, she told me no end, ‘If you got a tooth, you got a friend.’ I was young then, and careless, My toothbrush was hairless, I never had much time to spend.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Oh I showed them the toothpaste all right, I flashed it about late at night, But up-and-down brushin ’ And pokin ’ and fussin ’ Didn’t seem worth the time – I could bite!

PowerPoint Presentation:

If I’d known I was paving the way To cavities, caps and decay, The murder of fillin’s , Injections and drillin’s , I’d have thrown all me sherbet away.

PowerPoint Presentation:

So I lie in the old dentist’s chair, And I gaze up his nose in despair, And his drill it do whine In these molars of mine. ‘Two amalgam,’ he’ll say, ‘for in there.’

PowerPoint Presentation:

How I laughed at my mother’s false teeth, As they foamed in the waters beneath. But now comes the reckonin ’ It’s methey are beckonin ’ Oh, I wish I’d looked after me teeth.

FEW information about the poet:

FEW information about the poet Pam Ayres was born at Stanford in the Vale in the English county of Berkshire , now in Oxfordshire . After leaving Faringdon Secondary School at the age of 15, she joined the Civil Service as a clerical assistant and worked at the Army (RAOC) Central Ordnance Depot in Bicester. She soon left and signed up for the Women's Royal Air Force , where she worked in a drawing office dealing with operational maps, and it was there that she chose her career as an entertainer. She began reading her verses at the local folk club in Oxfordshire, and this led to an invitation to read on the local BBC Radio station in 1974. Her reading was re-broadcast nationally, and then broadcast again as one of the BBC's Pick of the Year . In September 2006, the BBC website stated that Bob Dylan inspired Ayres to write poetry, although in an interview (aired on Radio New Zealand 's Nine To Noon programme, 24 October 2006) she stated that the Lonnie Donegan records her brother played were her inspiration. Career In 1975 Ayres appeared on the television talent show Opportunity Knocks . This led to a wide variety of guest appearances on TV and radio shows. In February 1976 she was paid £600 to star in a cream cheese commercial. Since then she has published six books of poems, toured in a one woman stage show, briefly hosted her own TV show and performed her stage show for the Queen .
