about

about

Formidable Vegetable Sound System Fremantle, Australia

Experimental ‘ecological edutainment’ based around the principles of permaculture (a neat way to fix the world) mashing together ukulele with some electro-funk-swing, climate-change reggae, post-apocalypso and a decent serving of 'Radish Beets'.

Track Name: Sweet P'tata
You’re my sweet p’tata, sweet p’tata, sweet p’tata
I’m gonna eat ya later, eat ya later, eat ya later
You’re no dud spud under mud, you’re unrelated
cos you’re my sweet p’tata

Well, I see you being all shrivelled in my cupboard
Let me put you in the garden bed I think you’ll love it
Gonna leave ya underground until you make another
Little sweet p’tata, sweet p’tata

You’re a ground cover, ground cover, ground cover
Mound lover, drought tougher, you’re my sound brother
Gonna dig ya, wash ya, cook ya, eat ya for my supper
My little sweet p’tata, sweet p’tata

Yeah, you sweet p’tata, sweet p’tata, sweet p’tata
I’m gonna eat ya later, eat ya later, eat ya later
You’re my kind of dynamic accumulator
My little sweeeeeeee….

I’m gonna pluck your leafy tips
I’m gonna cut you into chips,
Maybe whip me up some dip
My little sweet p’tata

You’re my sweet p’tata, sweet p’tata, sweet p’tata
I’m gonna eat ya later, eat ya later, eat ya later
You're my saviour with the flavour that I wanna savour.
My lil sweet, sweet, sweert

You’re my sweet p’tata, sweet p’tata, sweet p’tata
I’m gonna eat ya later, eat ya later, eat ya later
Than a regular potato, you are so much greater.
My little sweet, my sweet, my sweet ptata.

Chords: Gm, Eb7, D7, Cm
