Mr. Potato Head, What Do You Need?
Mr. Potato Head, how will you see?
Mr. Potato Head, how will you smell?
Mr. Potato Head, how will you taste?
I’ll give you a mouth so you can eat cake.
Mr. Potato Head, how will you hear?
I’ll give you some ears so you’ll know when I’m near.
Mr. Potato Head, how will you touch?
I’ll give you some hands so you can feel much.
Mr. Potato Head, your head looks so bare.
I’ll give you a hat with some crazy black hair.
Mr. Potato Head, how will you run?
I’ll give you some feet so you can have fun.
