The Turkey is a Funny Bird Poem

The Turkey is a Funny Bird.
His Head Goes Wobble, Wobble.
The Only Sound He Ever Makes is
Gobble, Gobble, Gobble.

Turkey Song

I have a turkey, big and fat.
He spreads his wings and walks like that. (walk like a penguin or waddle)
His daily corn he would not miss.
And when he talks, he talks like this: “gobble, gobble, gobble.”

Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pie Yummy

(Sung To Peanut, Peanut Butter and Jelly)

First you take the pumpkin and you pick it,
You pick it, you pick it, pick it, pick it.
Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pie Yummy! Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pie Yummy!

Then you take the pumpkin and you carve it,
You carve it, you carve it, carve it, carve it.
Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pie Yummy! Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pie Yummy!

Next you take the spices and you mix it,
You mix it, you mix it, mix it, mix it.
Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pie Yummy! Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pie Yummy!

You put it in the oven and you wait,
You wait, you wait, you wait, you wait.
Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pie Yummy! Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pie Yummy!

You take it out the oven and you bite it,
You bite it, you bite it, bite it, bite it
And you chew it, you chew it, chew it, chew it, chew it. (Sing like your mouth is full)
Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pie Yummy! Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pie Yummy!

Let’s Be Thankful

(Sung To: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)

Let’s be thankful for this day
For our friends and our play
Let’s be thankful; let’s be glad
For our food and the things we have
Let’s give thanks for you and me
And our home and family.Turkey Coffee Filter Art
