Thanksgiving Songs, Poems and Fingerplays

 

The Turkey

A turkey I saw on thanksgiving,
Her tail was spread so wide.
Shhh....don't tell that you've seen her,
For she's running away to hide
(make fist for turkey & spread fingers of other hand for tail, Make a shhh sound)



Albuquerque The Turkey
(Sung to "O' My Darlin' Clementine")

Albuquerque, he's my turkey,
and he's feathered and he's fine
and he wobbles and he gobbles
and I'm awfully glad he's mine.

He's the best pet you could ever get
better than a dog or cat
Albuquerque, he's my turkey
and I'm awfully glad of that.

Albuquerque, he's my turkey
he's so cozy in his bed
because for our Thanksgiving dinner
we had scrambled eggs instead.

I'm a Little Turkey

(Sung to "I'm A Little Teapot")

I'm a little turkey,
My name is Ted.
Here are my feathers
Here is my head
Gobble, gobble, gobble,
Is what I say,
Quick! Run! It's Thanksgiving Day!

 

Gobble, Gobble
(Sung to "If you're Happy & You Know It")


"Gobble, gobble, gobble,gobble", says the bird-
"Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble", says the bird.
Mr. Turkey gobble-gobbles
And his head goes wobble-wobble
"Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble", says the bird.


A Turkey Sat on a Backyard Fence
A turkey sat on a backyard fence
And he sang this sad, sad tune:
"Thanksgiving Day is coming (Gobble,gobble, gobble, gobble)
And I know I'll be eaten soon!
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble,
Gobble, gobble,gobble, gobble,
I would like to run away--
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble,
I don't like Thanksgiving Day!"
