Cheryl introduces this as the most ridiculous song she has ever written. It is extremely funny.

She was walking through the woods with James, her border collie, when the chorus of the Mexican Hat Dance kept running through her head, using only the word potato. To make matters more difficult, she decided to sing it so that each line started with a different syllable. Later, when she was driving to a concert, she started on the verses.

You have to hear it to believe it. That was a joke :^)

John Porter McMeans created an animated version of this song on YouTube that has gotten over half a million viewings. He also created one for My Cat's Birthday.

Did you know that 2008 was the International Year of the Potato?
