Here's to you on turkey day
for all the food you put away
Seems you could hardly wait for grace
so you could finally stuff your face
 

No one had to ask you twice
two scoops yam and three scoops rice
Mash potato with gravy
cranberry sauce and sweet green peas


Dinner rolls all golden brown
with melted butter dripping down
And that poor bird won't be the same
they say you're partially to blame
 

You ate and then you ate some more
was it three plates, or maybe four
The serving trays went round and round
t'was a wonder you could keep it down


Then we all began to talk
making jokes 'bout if you could walk
But you ignored our jokes and jeers
still nibbling on corn cob ears


But then your eyes got big and round
and your stomach made that funny sound
And you declared that you must stop
for if not you would surely pop
 

You'd clearly outdone all your peers
with stuffing falling from your ears
You ate so much you wondered why
that's when someone asked, "O.K., who wants pie?"
