Thanksgiving Carols – Silent Turkey

Posted by on Nov 24, 2008 in personal | Comments Off on Thanksgiving Carols – Silent Turkey

A few years ago, our family and a friend were lamenting that fact that stores and radio stations were already playing Christmas music even though it was still weeks before Thanksgiving. But, then we realized that there really were no good Thanksgiving songs – at least, not like the foot-tapping Christmas songs. So, we wrote some Thanksgiving Carols of our own, to the tune of popular Christmas songs. I hope you enjoy these, and feel free to sing them with your family and friends around your Thanksgiving dinner.


Silent Turkey
(to the tune of Silent Night)

Silent turkey
Golden baked turkey
Give me some breast
Give me a thigh
Add some ‘taters
Pile ’em high
And a slice
Of pumpkin pie
I will loosen my belt
I will loosen my belt
