The Lyrics

This 20th parody has brought to you by "Potato Power": potatoes that give electricity power.
The power of spuds is a new invention
They're like batteries
That feel an emotion
They work for plugs to electronics
Makes TV my bud
That's the power of spuds
Makes computers work
It's like a dream
Stronger and quicker
Than Bill Gates' dreams
Helps me save money
For electric bills
Power of spuds will help
You not worry, but chill

You don't need outlets
Don't pay so much
Don't need a credit card
To buy a lunch
You might buy batteries
But it's really so easy
To get electricity

From the power of spuds
That's the power of spuds

The worst day I had
There was so much rain
Lightning strucked
Electricity drained
I was so lucky
Cause I had spuds
I get to plug
Anything into spuds

You don't need outlets
Don't pay so much
Don't need a credit card
To buy a lunch
You might buy batteries
But it's really so easy
To get electricity

From the power of spuds
That's the power of spuds

They make all mixers work fast
They help me make
Pancakes for breakfast
You won't have to worry
About causin' a fire from outlets
You use the power of spuds
You use the power of spuds
Can you use them

You don't need outlets
Don't pay so much
Don't need a credit card
To buy a lunch
You might buy batteries
But it's really so easy
To get electricity

From the power of spuds
That's the power of spuds

Potato power
Is stronger than steel

You can feel like it
You'll feel free
Cause it's no problem
From the power of spuds
That's no problem
And that's the power of spuds
That's the power of spuds...(till fade)

This whole song is fictional because there is no such thing as "Potato Power." I first found out about this fake "Potato Power" in "Martha Stewart Living", which is not too long before I found out that she's a fraud.
