The Lyrics

Lamenting the disappearance of Thanksgiving traditions has sort of become a tradition with me. This is the version I have chosen to pace my lyrics to:
My family would sit down to eat
Thanksgiving Day, on Thanksgiving Day
A turkey dinner, such a treat
Thanksgiving Day, our tradition

My Grandma bowed her head to pray
Thanksgiving Day, on Thanksgiving Day
God bless this food, she'd always say
Thanksgiving Day, our tradition

And all our far-off cousins came
Thanksgiving Day, on Thanksgiving Day
We sat and watched the football game
Thanksgiving Day, our tradition

A color flyer I received
Door buster sale, a door buster sale
Thanksgiving's now Black Friday Eve
We start our shopping on Thursday

New toys and gadgets in the aisle
Black Friday Eve, on Black Friday Eve
The profits make the merchants smile
Thanksgiving Day in the evening

The aunts and uncles are all gone
Thanksgiving Day, on Thanksgiving Day
Our Grandma rests 'neath graveyard lawn
Thanksgiving Day, we are mourning

We watch commercials all day long
A month or more, for a month or more
We need this stuff, they can't be wrong
We'll hit the stores Thursday evening

Those other shoppers block our way
Black Friday Eve on Black Friday Eve
With maxed out credit cards we'll pay
The bills will come on the 'morrow

The stores seem not as full this year
Black Friday sale, the Black Friday sale
As Cyber Monday's drawing near
Farewell, another tradition
