I need to eat something to stick to my ribs and get me through the day.
Only one thing that satisfies and fills me up that way.
I'm a poi boy... (can't get enough of that sticky stuff)
I'm a poi boy, mmmm yeah.
Taro's a plant of many uses, not one part goes to waste,
you can bake it or boi it, but I like it best
when it's pounded to a purple paste.
Some people say it's too sticky, some people say it's too bland
some people just can't tolerate the fact you gotta eat it with your hands.
Some people think it ought to be used to hold the paper on their walls,
but it's got a taste I can't resist any time it calls.
