How did Jimmy Buffet break his shoe and how did he cut his foot?

Some of the lyrics to "Margaritaville":
I blew out my flip-flop.
Stepped on a pop-top.
Cut my heel had to cruise on back home.
I always assumed he broke his shoe on the pop-top and hurt his foot at the same time. My husband pointed out this morning that it would have to be a pretty big pop-top to take out a flip-flop. So, did the shoe break on its own, requiring him to walk on bare feet and be vulnerable to a tiny piece of metal, or was it some kind of gigantic and/or sharp pop-top? Is a pop-top the tab from a can or the cap from a bottle?
