The Lyrics

This one was made for Thanksgiving. Requested by Kyle James Green.
[Verse 1]
Bake something for this year.
Bake something in the oven.
Something is just not what you see.
You see, it's just a turkey.
Bake that thing, Matthew, please.

[Chorus]
Hey, hey, hey!
Turkey! Turkey!
{pound!}
Turkey!
{pound pound!}
Don't you know that we can stop the turkey?!
Oh, oh.

[Verse 2]
Mash the mash,
Cut from the cut.
You can pour me in gravy,
And keep it shut.
There is only one thing that escaped,
It wasn't any of the apes.
Kyle, don't you get shot by the turkey.

[Chorus]
Heeeeey, hey hey!
Turkey! {snap snap}
Turkey! {snap!}
Turkey! {snap snap snap!}
Don't you know that we can stop the turkey?
Hey, hey, stop the turkey!
Yeah.

[Post Chorus 1]
Turkey.
It keeps running,
A turkey.
Something's burning.
A turkey.
Don't want it to run for Thanksgiving.
Stop!
Stop!
Stop!
Watch the turkey run back, turkey.
Stop!
Stop!
Stop!
Watch the turkey run back, turkey!

[Verse 3]
Put it in the oven,
Put it in the bakery.
You throw the dressing and the gravy, on the turkey, gee.
Put it in. Dylan, please.

[Chorus 3]
Hey, hey.
Turkey, turkey, turkey.
Don't you know that we can stop the turkey?
Hey, hey.
Stop the turkey.
Hey, hey, yeah.

[Post Chorus 2]
Turkey.
Running a-gane.
A turkey.
Can we ever stop that thing?
Turkey.
And the clock is ticking.
Stop!
Stop!
Stop!
Watch the turkey get shot, turkey.
Stop!
Stop!
Stop!
Watch the turkey get shot, turkey.

[Outro]
Stop the turkey.
Stop the turkey.
Stop the turkey.
Stop the turkey, hey, hey.
Stop the turkey.
Stop the turkey and run.
Stop the turkey and run.
Stop the turkey and run.
Stop the turkey and run.
Stop the turkey and run.
Stop the turkey and run.
Stop the turkey and run.
Stop the turkey and run.
Stop the turkey and run.
Stop the turkey and run.
Stop the turkey, stop the turkey,
Stop the turkey, stop the turkey,
Stop the turkey!
Stop the turkey and run.
Hope you all enj-WAH-ed it and have some Thanksgiving.

Did anyone see the episode of Friends where Monica put a turkey over her head?
