One of the very first Rabin-Skillman collaborations. Dates back to 1991 - the year we met. I first recorded it in February 1992 and felt it deserved a better treatment ... 30 years later. Recorded March 2021.


Grab a fork to the nearest potato
Open your mouth up really wide
Close your eyes and get excited
Let your saliva go for a ride

Buy yourself a bag of potatoes
Build a fire on the ground
Close your eyes and get excited
and suck that tater down

I lived in Dublin for many a year
and ate my bakes with gallons of beer
They told me about the blight, thought I should know
Now I'm never leaving Idaho

Dig up an Ireland of potatoes
Boil an ocean of water
Close your eyes and get excited
and don't skimp on the butter.
