Toothpaste and Orange Juice

You brushed your teeth, like you always do
Then someone put fresh orange juice down in front of you
You didnít think, you just drained the glass
And now youíre waiting for that awful taste to pass

Itís toothpaste and orange juice, apart theyíre both fine
But put them together Ė they leave a bad taste every time

I liked your looks, you liked mine too,
In time this wasnít quite enough to pull us through
The more we learned we found, the less we shared
Now itís hard to see how we had ever cared

Like toothpaste and orange juice, apart weíre both fine
But put us together Ė we leave a bad taste every time

Nobodyís right, nobodyís wrong,
Weíll save the blame for some other song
Like dropping the mints in the diet pop,
Weíre making a mess, and itís time that we stopped

It isnít you, itís not just me,
Thereís just some combinations that were never meant to be

Like toothpaste and orange juice, the chemistryís wrong
Donít put them together, they just donít belong
Like toothpaste and orange juice, apart weíre both fine
I guess youíll go your way, and Iíll go mine

Like toothpaste and orange juice, or humor in songs
Sometimes the right things just add up wrong
Like toothpaste and orange juice, apart weíre both fine
I guess youíll go your way, and Iíll go mine (x3)
