The Lyrics

someone obsessed with explosives...
Where's common sense when you need it the most?
I pulled out the pin and now I'm burnt as toast
I wish I knew why I'm so insane
They tell me I'm way too inhumane
and I need to be in a straight - jacket.....

I held that lighter just a little to low
I dropped it down and it roasted my toe
You tell me my life's been way off line
And I'm in pieces half the time
But I don't need no help at all....

Cause I held my greneade
I threw it right down
It landed in the square and it blew up the town
You say you don't know
You keep askin' why
I have such a sick obession with how to die
I have a grenade
Why do you care?
You'll be perfectly fine if you go over there
I have a grenade
I have a grenade

Well I need to break out of this jail
I think there's explosives in the mail
And I need to get them out....

I had a grenade
I threw it somewhere
But I can't find it now, there's no smoke in the air
Cops don't know
Don't tell them how
I threw my grenade and I killed your cow
I have a grenade
So you better beware
Back off right now or I'll light up your hair
I have a grenade

(Oh.. grenade)

Sometimes my system goes on the blink
And my thoughts all turn out wrong
I threw a grenade and it blew up my sink
That's why I wrote this song...
I wrote this song...yeah yeah

So where's common sense when ya need it the most?
Oh right now
I pulled out the pin and I'm burnt as toast...

Cause I have a grenade
I can't help myself
I can't leave it there, just on the shelf
I really don't know
I keep wondering why
I can't kiss this passion goodbye
I have a grenade
I know what it's like
And I'll throw it again, just one more time
I have a grenade
I have a grenade

Ooh, explosives... A subject that ought to be handled with care. This parody is very rough around the edges and could use just a little polishing. But perhaps you were afraid that it would then blow up in your faces.
