The Lyrics

As I get older, opening lids gets a little harder. Sometimes you gotta take drastic measures. Then face the consequences.
Lid was on tight
Salsa mild
For a while
I was riled
So I put up a fight
I used an iron spike
And no ‘pop’ for chip explore

And my hand did swell
As jar repelled

But I kept prying
But no use
Wouldn’t loose

And I bled
Nothing handy
Like a saw
Or claws for prying

Used lard
My frying pan
Tried to crush
With sedan
But I kept prying

I used grenades
And quite a few
When they blew
Food flew
I got my neighbor’s sore
With the flames galore
And singeing their small Shih Tzu

Heard the sirens scream
And they questioned me

I was doomed
All I do

From dusk
Till dawn
The bars
I’m pulling on

I’m still prying
Yeah, sighing
Over food.
For other ways to get in prison, check out Repo. Copyright 2010 Warren Baker

I don't mean to pry, but where did you come up with such a great idea? ;D

Thanks for the v/c's.
Mark- bangs on the counter often get me broken glass
OMR- I was thinking about my parents and their automatic lid opener, then one thing led to another, and I brought out the explosives.
AFW- It's never a good day when you're hungry and you can't open a jar of salsa.
