Where can I find the "Little Potato" song from The Morning Show?

I was listening to Dale and Jim Ed in early August during a vacation to the northwoods in Minnesota. They spoke of, and played, a children's song titled "You're my little potato". Can they tell me what recording they had of this? They and the song were quite entertaining. Thank you.

Dear Amy, the near-mystical power of Metamora's "Little Potato" is baffling to some, but it remains one of the most-requested songs on The Morning Show.

It was included on the original "Keepers" compilation disc, now long out of print; but it's also on Metamora's self-titled CD. It's still in print and can be found here on Public Radio MusicSource.
