Poe-tay-toe
There's an old Irish saying...
They're red, they're white, they're brown
They get that way underground
There can't be much to do
So now they have blue ones too

We don't care what thay look like we'll eat them
Any way they can fit on our plate
Every way we can conjure to heat them
We're delighted and think they're just great

Refrain
Poh tay toe Poh tay toe Poh tay toe Poh--
Tay toe poh Tay toe poh Tay toe poh Tay--
Toe poh tay Toe poh tay Toe poh tay Toe--
Poh tay toe Poh tay toe Poh tay toe!

Sometimes we ditch the skin
To eat what it's holding in
Sometimes we'd rather please
Have just the outside with cheese

They have eyes but they do not have faces
I don't know if their feelings get hurt
By just hanging around in dark places
Where that only can stare at the dirt

Refrain

I guess the use is scant
For other parts of the plant
But that which grows in view
Is eating potato too

I imagine them under their acres
Out in Idaho and up in Maine
Maybe wondering if they'll be bakers
Or knishes or latkes or plain

Refrain

Ooh... You win the "Get a song stuck in your SO's head" contest today. Damnit.

Tomorrow, just you wait...

I had to buy it because it was stuck in my head.

What's tomorrow?

If we play this game more than once a day, my brains might explode.

Now I'm really confused....
We had no certain plans tomorrow. Thursday came up as a potential lunch date but nothing came of it.

Tonight is EO Wilson lecture...

Next week Thursday is the NPR broadcast....

Okay... We're playing a game. This game is called, "Post something to your LJ that makes a song get stuck in someone's head." Remember "My Balogna"? "Potato"? There have been a number of other songs...

So I'm saying:
1. We can only play this game once a day instead of going back and forth all day with different songs stuck in our heads.
2. Tomorrow (the next time we play this game) I will get my revenge!

Pbbbbt!

You got me there. You win today - but just you wait until tomorrow!

Can't wait.

Am I still picking you up at 4:30?
aetrix9 From: aetrix9 Date: January 25th, 2006 05:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Until then! Call me when you get here.

I'm going to quit my email app and try and get some real work done now...

What about breakfast at Tiffany's? I think I remember the film. As I recall, I think, we both kind of liked it.

Crucilicious? I'm sure it's a perfectly cromulent word and all, but...
