Thanksgiving and Turkey Songs and Poems

Alburquerque the Turkey
(tune of :”O’ My Darlin’ Clementine”)

Alburquerque was a 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 can get yet,
Better than a dog or cat.
He’s my Alburquerque Turkey
And I’m awfully proud of that.

And my Alburquerque turkey
Is so cozy in his bed.
‘Cause for our Thanksgiving dinner
We had Egg Foo Yung instead.

Mr. Turkey
(tune of Shortnin’ Bread)

I am Mr. Turkey, Turkey, Turkey,
I am Mr. Turkey, big and fat.

On my tail are feathers, feathers, feathers.
On my tail are feathers–what do you think of that?

When I walk, I wobble, wobble, wobble.
And when I talk I gobble, gobble, gobble!

Yum, yum, yum!

The Turkey Dance
(sung to Turkey in the Straw)

Oh, you turkey to the left (two steps to the left)
And you turkey to the right (two steps to the right)
Then you heel and toe (do motion with foot)
And you scratch with all your might. (scratch with foot)

While your head goes bobble,bobble. (wobble head)
Turn around and then you say, (turn around)

Six Little Turkeys
(Six Little Ducks)

Six little turkeys that I once knew,
Fat ones, skinny ones there were too.
But the one little turkey with the funny red wattle,
He led the others with his gobble, gobble, gobble.
Gobble, gobble, gobble,
Gobble, gobble, gobble.
He led the others with his gobble, gobble, gobble.

Over the rocks and through the trees,
Turkeys wobbling in the breeze.
But the one little turkey with the funny red wattle,
He led the others with his gobble, gobble, gobble.
Gobble, gobble, gobble,
Gobble, gobble, gobble.
He led the others with his gobble, gobble, gobble.

I Eat Turkey
(Frere Jacques)

I eat turkey, Point to self)
I eat turkey. (Point to self again)
Yes, I do, (Nod head)
Yes, I do. (Nod head)

Turkey in my tummy, Rub tummy)
Yummy, yummy, yummy. (Rub tummy)
Good for me, (Point to self)
Good for you. (Point to others)

Joe Scruggs Turkey Song
(Tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic)

There’s a turkey in the back yard and he’s really getting fat.
There’s a turkey in the back yard and he’s really getting fat.
There’s a turkey in the back yard and he’s really getting fat.
‘Cause he eats corn all day.

Chorus:

I don’t want to eat the turkey,
I don’t want to eat the turkey,
I don’t want to eat the turkey,
On Thanksgiving Day.

We bought him from a former and he’s now become my pet…
And he comes when I call his name.

My mother’s on a diet and she should be eating fish…
So my turkey may get to stay.

I hid my daddy’s hatchet in the woodshed out in back…
So my turkey will get to stay.

Turkey Pokey
(Hokey Pokey)

You put your right wing in.
You put your right wing out.
You put your right wing in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the turkey pokey
And you turn your self around.
That’s what it’s all about.

Additional verses:

Left wing (left arm)
Drumsticks (legs)
Stuffing (tummy)
Wattle (head)
Tail feathers (bottom)
Turkey body (whole self)

Thanksgiving Colors

Orange is a pumpkin.
Yellow is the corn.
Brown is the turkey
With stuffing to adorn.
Red are the cranberries.
Green are the beans.
Five delicious colors-
In a feast of my dreams.

I’m Glad I’m Not a Turkey

Oh, I’m glad I’m not a turkey,
A turkey, a turkey,
Oh, I’m glad I’m not a turkey,
On Thanksgiving Day.
They stuff you and bake you,
And then they all taste you.
Oh, I’m glad I’m not a turkey,
On Thanksgiving Day.

Thanksgiving
by Ivy Eastwick

Thank You for all my hands can hold-
Apples red and melons gold,
Yellow corn, both ripe and sweet,
Peas and beans, so good to eat!

Thank You for all my eyes can see-
Lovely sunlight, field and tree,
White cloud-boats in sea-deep sky,
Soaring bird and butterfly.

Thank You for all my ears can hear-
Birds’ song echoing far and near,
Songs of little stream, big sea,
Cricket, bullfrog, duck and bee!
