The Exploding Potato

exploding potato (2)

It was Guy Fawkes night when my friend Barbara Payne put a baking potato in her oven. When some time later she heard a loud bang she assumed it was a local firework. But when she subsequently went to the kitchen to fetch her dinner she found potato shrapnel all over the inside of the oven. This seemed to require a tune. The potato explodes in bar 4 of the B tune.

I like to follow this tune with The Extension Reel.
