The Lyrics

From The Beatles " The Food Album"
Flew back into town just the other day
From a two-week vacation
I was kinda hungry but the kitchen was bare
So I went to solve this food frustration
Back in the Grocery Store
So I won't be hungry no more, boy
Back in the Grocery Store

Got a cart and went inside to pick up a few things
And then I got a little surprised
All the prices on the shelf went up so high
I just sat down in the aisle and cried
Back in the Grocery Store
The prices are higher than before, boy
Back in the Grocery Store

Everything has increased sky-high
I don't know what to do
If I have to pay I would soon go broke
It would cost too much for me to even chew,chew,chew

So I'm going home to plant and grow my own food
And live a better life that I can
I'll just go there for my toilet paper and milk
Cause now I'm a vegetarian
Back in the Grocery Store
You'll see me there less, not more
Back in the Grocery Store

Yeah, growing vegetables is the way to save money purchasing them from grocery stores! However, you also got to watch out for gophers and other garden rodents who want to eat your veggies. Great work!

We'll probably see those prices increase soon.

Still, it's more affordable than it was back In the U.S.S.R. Good job, Dan! ;D

Excellent! The Beatles should've had a food album, it'd be funnier than their stuff was. Anyway, yeah I always notice when prices go up. Well written and yummy parody!
