The Turkey Song

Lyrics

Its Thanksgiving day and were gathered round
Little children make a joyful sound
And theres no school and we get to play
And were all thankful for this day
Except for the turkey
La lala la la la la la
Except for the turkey

Theres a wreath of leaves on the front door
And we all say what were thankful for
Theres such good food and theres such great fun
And theres such big smiles on everyone
Except for the turkey
La lala la la la la la
Except for the turkey

We all join hands and sing this song
with happy hearts and a love thats strong
We bow our heads then we have our feast
Its a lovely day to say the least
Except for the turkey
La lala la la la la la
Except for the turkey

So if youre a turkey and youre still alive,
you might kinda wanna hide
Or soon youll probly be dead meat
On this festive day youre what we eat
So fly away to a distant land
Where people think turkeys are grand
Spread your wings and sore up high
And be thankful that birds can fly
Except for the turkey.
La lala la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La lala la la la la

Except for the turkey

Its Thanksgiving day and were gathered round
Little children make a joyful sound
Theres such good food and theres such great fun
Its a Happy Thanksgiving for everyone
Except for the turkey

La lala la la la la la
Except for the turkey
