Girl Potato and Boy Potato

Girl Potato and Boy Potato

A 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.

Yam said not to worry
No Spud would get   her into the sack and make a rotten potato out of her!

But, on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and become a Couch Potato, either.
She would get plenty of exercise so as not to be skinny like her shoestring cousins.
When she went off to Europe
Mr. and Mrs. Potato told Yam to watch out   for the hard-boiled guys from Ireland and

And when she went out West, to watch out for the Indians so she wouldn't get scalloped.

Yam said she would stay on the straight and narrow and wouldn't associate with those high class Yukon Golds, or the ones from the other side of the tracks who advertise their 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.
Tom Brokaw?

Mr. and Mrs. Potato were very upset.

They told Yam she couldn't possibly marry Tom Brokaw because he's just......
