let's make hand grenades
from common things around the house
let's make hand grenades
listen up
we'll show you how
Okay, now take an old beer bottle
fill it up with gasoline
some pigment for good measure
a srig of megonise
now stuff a sock into the top
cause after you'll be paying, yeah!
let's make hand grenades
it's hours of fun in a little jar
let's make hand grenades
try one out on your neghbor's car

    General Comment1st) Blackbird is right, Dexter's got a Bachelors and Masters in Molecular Biology, but didn't finish his PhD. Too bad, he could have had...Dexter's Laboratory? hahaha

    2nd) It's not a hand grenade in the normal sense. It's called a Molotov cocktail, and it's more of a firebomb or an incendiary. Rioters throw them a lot.

    3rd) Don't make any, because they're illegal.

    4th) I'm pretty sure you don't need a degree in molecular biology to figure out how to put gas in a bottle, stuff it with a rag, and light it. It's about as sophisticated as a stick with a nail in the end.

    General Commentits just telling you how to make a hand grenade, i mean dexter/bryan has a phd in bio-chemistry or something like that so it should be right if anyone is interested in making a hand grenade....

    General CommentOk since Dexter has a Phd in bio-chemistry why is he a musician? He'd be better off as a bio-chemist... but i dunno... that's what makes these guys different

    General CommentFirst of all, the song is called hand grenades... it's about making hand grenades... from common things around the house.
    Second, Dexter was a microbiologist (never finished), so I don't think he's showing off his knowledge. I really think he just thinks it's cool to destroy stuff for fun.

    General CommentOhh, the fast part of the song is SO off.
    It should be this:

    "Okay, now take an old beer bottle
    Fill it up with gasoline
    Some paint thinner for good measure
    And a sprinkle of manganese
    Now stuff a sock into the top
    With a zippo you'll be king, yeah!"

    And for a song that only lasts like 30 seconds, it's damn awesome.
