Spot The Potato


When There's Tears In the Eyes of a Potato

Johnny said goodbye to his sweetie pie
He said I'll be back in ninety years
She said listen John
you'll miss me when you're gone
You're gonna weap a bucket full of tears

But Johnny said you know my love is cold
So listen woman while I get you told

When the teeth of a comb begin to chatter
And a river's mouth can sing a hot-cha song
When all fat men are trying to get fatter
And plumbers always bring their tools along

When a bird has to use an elevator
And the fire engines all are painted blue
When there's tears in the eyes of a potato
Then I'll be crying for you

When a hat band can play a perfect rhythym
And an ear of corn can recognize the tune
When the leg of a chair has rheumatism
And Christmas is the 25th of June

When a goldfish can lick an aligator
And when cows learn to crow and roosters moo
When there's tears in the eyes of a potato
Then I'll be crying for you

When the bed of a river needs a blanket
And the leaves of every book turn red in fall
When the vinegar's mother has to spank it
And the statues come a-running when you call

When the Eskimos buy refrigerators
And the foot of a mountain needs a shoe
When there's tears in the eyes of a potato
Then I'll be crying for you
