Well, Girl Potato and Boy Potato had eyes for each other, and finally they
Got married, and had a little sweet potato, which they called 'Yam.'
Of course, they wanted the best for Yam.

They warned her about going out and getting half-baked, so she wouldn't get
Accidentally mashed, and get a bad name for herself like 'Hot Potato,' and
End up with a bunch of Tater Tots.
Yam said not to worry, no Spud would get her into the sack and make a

But on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and become a Couch Potato

Indians so she wouldn't get scalloped.
Yam said she would stay on the straight and narrow and wouldn't associate

Trade on all the trucks that say, 'Frito Lay.'
Mr. And Mrs. Potato sent Yam to Idaho P.U.(that's Potato University) so that
When she graduated she'd really be in the Chips.
But in spite of all they did for her, one-day Yam came home and announced
She was going to marry Tom Brokaw.
Mr. And Mrs. Potato were very upset.
They told Yam she couldn't possibly marry Tom Brokaw because he's
