It was about 8:00 pm
When a craving for pizza was born
I had no money and my parents were gone
That's when, too, a criminal was born

I looked and encountered an outfit,
Got dressed and erected a plan
Before I knew it I was leaving my house
With a flashlight held tightly in my hand

I wondered along 'til I came to a house
It was Joey's, the Papa John's man
He was a real grinch, but I needed his fridge
So I could carry out my good plan

Through the window I crawled
To the kitchen I crept, silent as can be
I was about to leave the house
When suddenly a light spotted me

Now I'm at court to plead my case
It's a very sad thing to see
A child who's messed up their entire life
Just to find something to eat
