The Lyrics

Thought I'd cook up a Thanksgiving parody so I entered 'turkey' into the search box on This was the only song that came up, so here it is. This Thanksgiving, know when to say when...

Blood pressure's rising, with every bite
Only been eating, all day and night
My eyelids so heavy, should go to bed
I could sleep like a baby, but still being fed

Oh turkey, it's hotly...on my tongue

My belly is aching, I should have known
Can't eat four turkeys, and have no groans
My mouth is wide open, bounty I reap
The wings I sure love, they're piled in a heap, see?

Oh turkey, it makes me...glutton on
Umm, mmmm, ummm, mmmmm, ooooh
Oh turkey, it makes me...weigh a ton

Thirty pound turkey, I can't abstain
Praying my stomach, handles the strain
Those sweet things are good boy, gravy is swell
But turkey beats everything, do without would be hell

Oh turkey, don't leave me...can't go on...


(Lots of screaming, wailing and gnashing of teeth as our tukey lover realizes the turkey is all gone)

(Really, you should turn the song off now, it's not a pretty thing to listen to)

(Told ya)
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday weekend!

It's hard to go "cold turkey'" on Thanksgiving, isn't it, blackjack? Way to cook up a Thanksgiving satire there! Hey, maybe I could have Thanksgiving at your house? LOL!!! I'll eat those turkeys for you if you can't finish all of them! Speaking of which, maybe we're going to have turkey after all tomorrow, thanks to Butterball being on sale at BJ's the other day!! ;) 5 turkey white meat, 5 dark meat, and 5 drumsticks for this one!

Getting the bird and getting stuffed... what a holiday. ;)

Oh... are you going to finish your sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce? I'll take 'em... : ) Happy Thanksgiving!

Mark: Thanks, I did enjoy your gizzard wizard Roy.

Christie: Sure, you can come to my house...but there won't be anyone there, sorry. Thanks for v/c! ;-)

Fiddlegirl: Ha, take that bird and stuff it! ;-) And you're in luck; I don't like sweet potatoes or cranberry sauce, so they're all yours. Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your cast of characters! ;-D
