Turkey Trouble

Lyrics

Oh we bought a Christmas turkey
In time for him to grow
We thought he’d be so good to eat
But how were we to know
That turkey’s name was Trouble?
And even though we tried
The oven was not big enough
He would not go inside

And he was…
Knocking down the Christmas tree
Eating our mince pies
Swallowing the tinsel and trying on Dad’s ties
He pulled down all the holly and the decorations too
He was too quick for us to catch
We didn’t know what to do

And he was…
Pulling at a cracker
It really made him jump
He ran into the garden where a sleigh was landing
BUMP!
The sleigh belonged to Santa
Who laughed with such delight
And asked the turkey if he’d help
To pull the sleigh that night

And he was…
Eating all the fairy lights
The Christmas cards as well
And as he joined the reindeer gang
The snowflakes softly fell
Old Santa took the reins and said
“My sacks are full of toys
You’ll help me give my presents out
To all the girls and boys.”

So he was…
Not a Christmas dinner
Not roast nor in a pie
Our turkey will be famous
Watch for him in the sky.
For now as Santa’s helper
Along with Rudolph too
He pulls the sleigh along the way
With gifts for me and you!

So he was…
Not a Christmas dinner
Not roast nor in a pie
Our turkey will be famous
Watch for him in the sky
For now as Santa’s helper
Along with Rudolph too
He pulls the sleigh along the way
With gifts for me and you!
