Mr Shaodow (Elliot Haslam) from the 2007 Mouth Cancer Voice Awards wrote a poem/rap which the Mouth Cancer Foundation is now going to use as it's official theme song. Copyright belongs to Mr Shaodow and he's currently recording the song with a backing track which we can then play on the website. We're hoping he'll do live performances during our events. Here are the lyrics:
Seems like it’ll never happen
It seems like it’ll never happen,
Mouth cancer a concept further than Saturn,
So you sit back, safe in your usual pattern,
While a small gang of cells start to quietly fatten,
This health stuff, man you don’t buy it,
So you smoke, drink and keep a bad diet,
A dentist could help but you don’t wanna try it,
And those cells have nothing to say they stay quiet,
It starts off with a chronic sore,
An ulcer, numb tongue or a swollen jaw,
It’s the kinda thing you could just ignore,
But those small cells ain’t so small anymore,
Where will it attack? You can make your choice,
Is it the mouth? Throat? Will it take your voice?
Not a joke, not a lie, the death rate is high,
Nearly every three hours someone else will die,
So would a life style change really be so mad?
Would a trip to the dentist be so bad?
Listen to my words man, cos it’s more than banter,
Think what you could lose, if you had mouth cancer.
