The Lyrics

you're gonna break out them ol' potatoes
when boise's your home
you're gonna cook up some munchy tubers
it's boise's big claim to fame
you gotta have 'em with meat
heaps within reach, just bake 'em
goes great with ham, or a bird like hen
nearly a law to make 'em
when boise's your home

when boise's your home, no good
if you're likin' some other food
taters brought fame...they're admired
the sales have been zoomin'
spuds are just on fire

oh, would you like to sample
few folks would say no
line up, supply is ample
we'll bake a few pounds tonight
then we'll fixin' to eat
likely to be a foodfight
breakin' some bones when those darn things spin
serve 'em up mashed the next night
when boise's your home

when boise's your home, you're glad
found the best job i ever had
seems that mobs came
and got hired
to dig those potatoes
as was soon required

Great Sir Alvin!! This really flies! In Coeur d'Alene they have ~Potato Guns~! It is a wild, crazy whole lotta fun; the spuds really wobble when they leave the gun . . . .
