I've mislaid the middle of a childhood rhyme - can anyone help? It starts:

"Do you eat potatoes?"
"Yes I do!"

and it ends

"How do you like them?"
"Skins and all."
"And do they not hurt you?"
"Arrah, not at all!"

It was always said in a rural Cork accent - shkins and aahhll… and in a tone of astonishment "Arrah, not at aaaahhhll!"

I think the third line might be "How do you like them?"

Anyone?

Do you eat potatoes
Sure I do
Where do they come from
Donegal
How do you eat them
Skins and all
And do they hurt you
Not at all

This from my Cork City husband though never to a tune just a rhyme.
