The Lyrics

The best song of 1995 and the best movie of 1996 were both titled "Independence Day". Then there's my parody. Will it be the best of 2010? Ha! Ha!
Well it looked all right by the Frigidaire light
Though the label code referred to last week
It wasn't that old, I didn't see any mold
The package hadn't started to leak
Good sense said I should throw the thing out
But frugality would win the debate
In the dark of the night, I took a bite
Past Expiration Date

It was fine going down, then I started to frown
At the rumbling sound that came from inside
My breathing had slowed, I was about to explode
For a moment I was certain I'd died
Some came upward and some went down
Either way, I lost a whole lot of weight
That innocent stew was now the Devil's own brew
Past Expiration Date

I began to scream, "Call a medic team!"
It was just one bite but the effect was sickening
Everything went wrong
I need something strong
I just sweat and moan, occupy the throne
It's Expiration Date!

The word came down, a tainted product was found
"We'll tell you all about it at ten"
I'd worked hard that day, so on my pillow I lay
I'd been asleep an hour by then
News I'd miss proved not knowing ain't bliss
How many suffered for their delay?
My equilibrium wrecked for their dramatic effect
On Expiration Date

Feel the fever burn, as my stomach churns
I search in vain but cannot obtain any remedy
This late snack I ate
Will it seal my fate?
Will I croak alone? Will they carve it in stone?
My Expiration Date

Quite a unique and creative theme and title. Something everyone can relate to. I know I've cooked an egg or two after the date, and then, of course, ya' wonder....Great idea, very entertaining read.
