I Found a Hobby is a demo of a song composed for the musical, which was ultimately replaced by Dentist! Presumably the chorus would have been provided by Crystal, Ronnette and Chiffon.

The demo was officially issued on the 2003 New Broadway soundtrack, with vocals by Howard Ashman (Orin) and Alan Menken (backup).

Lyrics

Orin Crystal, Ronnette & Chiffon
It started when
A lad of ten
I told my friends
"I'll meet'cha
At Dr. Blood's Revenge,"
Which was
A gresome horror feature!
And when I saw the awesome torture chamber in that flick,
I found I got a hardon while the other kids got sick!
I found a hobby! I found a hobby!
I found a hobby! I found a hobby!
Out in the lobby Out in the lobby
I went insane! I went insane!
A voice inside me A voice inside me
Said, "Kid, you love it! Said, "Kid, you love it!
I think you're into... I think you're into...
Heavy pain!"
By 13 years
I'd taught my peers
'bout bondage and submission,
Gave illustrated lectures on
The Spanish Inquisition!
Some boys take dirty books to the john
And give themselves a whack!
I did the same with lithographs
Of thumbscrews and the rack.
At 22
The time came due
To choose a life's profession.
I struggled hard to think of one
In line with mine obsession!
I could have been a boxer
Or lawyer, yeah, I guess,
But no one causes suffering
Like a licensed D.D.S.
And now my hobby And now my hobby
Ain't just my hobby, Ain't just my hobby,
No, its-a my job No, its-a my job
To make the patients shake with fear! To make the patients shake with fear!
What started out as What started out as
A secret pastime A secret pastime
Is now my hobby... Is now my hobby...
And my career!
Say "Ahhhh!"
