The lack of energy was haunting me
I couldn’t find a reason to be
Satisfied and truly happy
But now I thank my hunger

If there is one thing I could take
From this world for my own sake
Boil it, mash it, fry it and bake
Those delicious golden potatoes

An aphrodisiac they one were
Considered by many to be the sure
Way to get the best dinner served
And I thank God for that

So when you blessings are counted few
Remember that one thing is true
If you boil it, mash it or stick it in a stew
Those potatoes make anyone’s day

Unorthodox mabey, but I grow on you.
