The Turkey Song (A funny Thanksgiving Song) by Bryant Oden

Here’s the Youtube video for The Turkey Song (Except for the Turkey), a funny kids’ song for Thanksgiving. You can download it at iTunes or payloadz.com

Once in a while a song goes from idea to finished pretty darn fast. I wrote this song on Nov 9th, 2009, and on Nov 10th (today) I went to Scott Martin’s studio to record it. Scott did the instruments on keyboard, and also sang background. We spent a few hours creating it, and then I went home, made the video, and just now put it on youtube. Some songs take days or weeks, so I love it when a song comes together this fast.

Lyrics and Chords to The Turkey Song: A funny Thanksgiving Song.

Here are the guitar tabs and lyrics to The Turkey Song:  (Except for the Turkey) A Funny Song for Thanksgiving

C G C G
It’s Thanksgiving day and we’re gathered round
C G C D
Little children make a joyful sound
And there’s no school and we get to play
And we’re all thankful for this day
C D G
Except for the turkey
La lala la la la la la except for the turkey

There’s a wreath of leaves on the front door
And we all say what we’re thankful for
There’s such good food and there’s such great fun
And there’s such big smile’s on everyone
Except for the turkey
La lala la la la la la
Except for the turkey

We all join hands and sing this song
with happy hearts and a love that’s strong
We bow our heads then we have our feast
It’s a lovely day to say the least
Except for the turkey
La lala la la la la la
Except for the turkey
(repeat last line as instrumental )

So if you’re a turkey and you’re still alive,
you might kinda wanna hide
Or soon you’ll probly be dead meat
On this festive day you’re what we eat
So fly away to a distant land
Where people think turkeys are grand
Spread your wings and sore up high
And be thankful that birds can fly
Except for the turkey.
La lala la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La lala la la la la
Except for the turkey

It’s Thanksgiving day and we’re gathered round
Little children make a joyful sound
There’s such good food and there’s such great fun
It’s a Happy Thanksgiving for everyone
Except for the turkey
La lala la la la la la
Except for the turkey

    … And be thankful that birds can fly.
    Except for the Turkey… and the Emu… and the Ostrich… and the Kiwi Bird.
    Thought it may make a good addition/tag.
