The Potato

The potato got a haircut
Now it looks as good as new
It also got a brand new watch
A shine upon it's shoe

He bought a brand new shirt and tie
And ironed his best pants
And signed up for some lessons
To teach him how to dance

A brand new suit, suspenders too
A big top hat to match
He also baked some cookies
A tremendous tasting batch

He made new friends and bought the latest albums on cd
One afternoon he was invited to a big party
While on his way a gang came up and kicked him in the hip
They bludgeoned him and tortured him, and now he is a chip
