"Mashed Potato Time" as written by Kalman Cohen, Freddie Gorman, William Garrett, Georgia Dobbins, Robert Bateman and Brian Holland....
It's the latest, it's the greatest
Mashed potato, ya, ya ,ya, ya

A Mashed potato started long time ago
With a guy named Sloppy Joe
You'll find this dance is so cool to do
Come on baby, gonna teach it to you

Mashed potato, feel it in your feet now
Mashed potato, come on get the beat now
Baby, come on honey, come on baby, ya, ya, ya, ya

And then they dance it through and through
They look for records they can do it to
They got a dance was outta sight
Doin' the lion sleeps tonight

(Mashed potato) ya a weem o wep a weem o wep
(Mashed potato) ya, ya, ya, ya
(It's the latest) oh, baby
(It's the greatest) come on, honey
Ya, ya, ya, ya

Now everybody is doin' fine
They dance alone or in a big boss line
And they discovered it's the most man
The day they did it to Please Mr. Postman

(Mashed potato) wait a minute, wait a minute
(Mashed potato) deliver the letter
(It's the latest) oh, baby
(It's the greatest) come on, honey
Ya, ya, ya, ya

Well they got with more and more
Ya ought to see 'em around the floor
The mashed potato long long list
They even do it to Dear Lady Twist

(Mashed potato) get up on your tail now
(Mashed potato) ya, ya, ya, ya
(It's the latest) come on, baby
(It's the greatest) oh, honey
Ya, ya, ya, ya

(Mashed potato) feel the groovy beat now
