The Lyrics

I believe potatoes are the future
You can cook them almost any way
Eat them baked, mashed, boiled, roasted, or fried
Just add a pinch of salt to make it tastier
And add some butter too, maybe just a tablespoon or three

Everybody’s searching for a hero
People need to find a super food
That fulfills all of their dietary needs
A tasteless place to be
Until I found the super food for me

I discovered long ago, the hidden powers of the potato
They taste great with everything
And they’re packed with Vitamin C
No matter how many you slice
You’ll never eat them the same way twice
Because the greatest food of all
Has versatility
I found the greatest food of all
In my tummy
The greatest food of all
Is usually cheap
Learn to prepare them well
And you’ll have the greatest food of all

I believe potatoes are the future
You can eat them almost any way
Scallops, wedges, latkes, hash-browns, or fries
Different colors too: red, yellow, white, and blue
Yukon and Russet too, just find the kind that works for you


And if, by chance, you’re stuck on Mars
And your name is Matt Damon
There’s no need to be alarmed
Find potato love
In case you couldn't tell, my favorite food is the all powerful potato!

As the world renowned potatologist, I give this 5's

How could this Irishman have missed such a tribute to our national cuisine. I am especially fond of the elusive Terra Blue potato chips. Only one store in metro Kansas City seems to stock them. Very expensive, but worth the price for an occasional treat.
