The Lyrics

Just go diving in, mmmm-mm-mm.
Ketchup in a can, mmmm-mm-mm.
Bottled, it won't move out, mmmm-mm-mm.
So you yell and stick in a knife.

Ketchup in a can (4x)

Bottles are no fun, mmmm-mm-mm.
Ketchup just won't run, mmmm-mm-mm.
And it makes you angry, mmmm-mm-mm.
You miss—stick yourself with the knife.

Ketchup in a can (4x)

Packed this way, you win, mmmm-mm-mm.
Ketchup in a can, mmmm-mm-mm.
Slather this red goo on, mmmm-mm-mm.
Spread it all around with your knife.

Ketchup in a can (4x)

Could we do this with that Heinz guy? You know, can him? Nice simple parody with a solution to an age old problem. Here's a 15 oz. can of ketchup.

Thanks for the info, Little Bird. I was wondering why we couldn't get to the Messageboard today. I know that Chucky had announced his engagement a while back (and I think I responded to that thread), and I guess I had forgotten about it.

About the parody: it was good.
