Some of the Thanksgiving songs below are well-known, others are not-so-well-known, yet all will help inspire your Thanksgiving spirits.

Albuquerque Turkey

(To the tune of “Clementine”)

Albuquerque he’s my turkey
Oh he’s feathered and he’s fine
He wobbles and he gobbles
And I’m awfully glad he’s mine.
He’s the best pet
You could ever get.
Better than a dog or cat.
Albuquerque he’s my turkey
And I’m awfully glad of that.
Albuquerque he’s my turkey
He’s so cozy in his bed
Because for Thanksgiving dinner
We had scrambled eggs instead.

Turkey, Turkey

(To the tune of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”)

Turkey, Turkey look at you
Please be careful what you do.
Thanksgiving day is almost here.
We eat turkey every year.
Go and hide out in the woods.
We’ll eat pizza like we should.

See All the Turkeys

(To the tune of “Shortnin' Bread”)

See all the turkeys up in the tree,
All the little turkeys try to hide from me.
All the little turkeys go gobble, gobble,
All the little turkeys go just like this....
All the little turkeys go wobble, wobble,
All the little turkeys go just like this…

Mr. Turkey

(To the tune of “Are You Sleeping?”)

Mr. Turkey, Mr. Turkey
Nice and fat, nice and fat
I am going to eat you
I am going to eat you
Just like that.
Just like that.

Fat Turkey's Song

(To the tune of "Did You Ever See a Lassie?")

Oh, gobble, gobble, gobble,
Fat turkeys, fat turkeys.
Oh, gobble, gobble, gobble,
Fat turkeys are we.
We walk very proudly and gobble so loudly,
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble.
Oh, gobble, gobble, gobble.
Fat turkeys are we.

Teepee

(To the tune of “The Farmer in the Dell”)

A teepee is my home.
Of deer skins it is made.
A place on top where smoke can go,
It stands in forest shade.
The river runs nearby
and there is my canoe.
I paddle up and down the stream,
beneath a sky of blue.

-- Coolest Thanksgiving Songs --

We Are Thankful

(To the tune of “Frere Jacque”)

We are thankful, we are thankful
For our families, for our families
On Thanksgiving Day
You will hear us say
Thank you, Thank you
Same thing with
We are thankful for our friends...
We are thankful for our food...

If I were a turkey
on Thanksgiving Day,
and you invited me to dinner
this is what I'd say:
"It's nice of you to ask me,
but I really cannot come.
I'd rather eat my dinner
than be eaten by someone.

Turkey

(To the tune of “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 motions with foot)
And you scratch with all your might (scratch floor with foot)
Now you flap your turkey wings (put thumbs in armpit and flap)
While your head goes bobble, bobble (wobble head)
Turn around and then you say, (turn around)
"Gobble, gobble, gobble!"

By the way, would you like mine?
Pot pie lasts a long, long time,
It's turkey every day!

Dinner Bells

(To the tune of “Jingle Bells”)

Dashing through our food,
With a knife and fork so fast,
Corn and peas to go,
While through the throat they pass,
Into the tummy they plop,
Making growling stop,
So, oh what fun it is to eat
And eat until we drop!

Oh, dinner bells, shotgun shells.
Turkey got away
What are we supposed to do?
On our Thanksgiving Day?

Ten Little Indians

One little, two little, three little Indians,
Four little, five little, six little Indians,
Seven little eight little, nine little Indians,
All came out to play with-

One little, two little three little pilgrims,
Four little, five little six little pilgrims,
Seven little eight little, nine little pilgrims,
On Thanksgiving day.

Playing hide and seek by the crooked creek,
Beating rum, tum, tum, on an Indian drum,
Riding two by two, in a birch canoe,
Racing far and near, running with the deer,
What a way to play on Thanksgiving day.

Bring Back My Turkey to Me

(To the tune of “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean”)

My turkey went walking on morning,
The November weather to see.
A man with a hatchet approached her,
Oh, bring back my turkey to me.

Bring, back, bring back,
Oh, bring back my turkey to me, to me.
Bring back, bring back,
OH, bring back my turkey to me.

I went down the sidewalk a-shopping,
The sights in shop windows to see,
And everywhere hung great fat gobblers
Oh, bring back my turkey to me.

I went out to dinner and ordered
The best thing they had I could see,
They brought it all roasted and sizzling
They brought back my turkey to me.

Brought back, brought back
They brought back my turkey to me,
Brought back, brought back,
OH, brought back my turkey to me.

Giving Thanks Song

(To the tune of "Itsy Bitsy Spider")

First, we give thanks for the
food that we've been given
Then, we give thanks for the
houses that we live in.
And we give thanks for the
sun that shines above, but
Mostly we give thanks for the people that we love.

 

A Thanksgiving Song

(To the tune of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat")

The Pilgrims sailed away,
Far across the sea.
They came to America
So they could be free.

The Native Americans
Helped them plant the corn.
Then they shared a great big feast,
Thanksgiving Day was born!

-- Coolest Thanksgiving Songs --

The Pilgrims Came

(To the tune of “Yankee Doodle”)

The pilgrims came across the sea,
And never thought of you and me
And yet, it's very strange the way
We think of them on Thanksgiving Day.

We tell their story old and true,
Of how they sailed across the blue.
And found a new land to be free,
And built their homes quite near the sea.

Every child knows well the tale
Of how they bravely turned the sail,
And journeyed many a day and night
To worship God as they thought right.

If You're Thankful and You Know It

(To the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It")

If you're thankful and you know it, clap your hands.
If you're thankful and you know it, clap your hands.
If you're thankful and you know it,
Then your face will surely show it.
If you're thankful and you know it, clap your hands.

If you're thankful and you know it, stomp your feet.
If you're thankful and you know it, stomp your feet.
If you're thankful and you know it,
Then your face will surely show it.
If you're thankful and you know it, stomp your feet.

If you're thankful and you know it, shout, "I am!"
If you're thankful and you know it, shout, "I am!"
If you're thankful and you know it,
Then your face will surely show it.
If you're thankful and you know it, shout, "I am!"

If you're thankful and you know it, do all three.
If you're thankful and you know it, do all three.
If you're thankful and you know it,
Then your face will surely show it.
If you're thankful and you know it, do all three.

Thanksgiving

(To the tune of “Where is Thumpkin”)

Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving
Here it comes, here it comes.
Turkey on the table, turkey on the table.
MMM good, MMMM good.

Cornbread muffins, chestnut stuffing,
Pumpkin pie, ten feet high.
We were so much thinner, before we came to dinner.
Me oh my, me oh my!

-- Coolest Thanksgiving Songs --

Mr. Turkey

(To the tune of “Yankee Doodle”)

Mr. Turkey, better watch out!
Thanksgiving Day is coming.
If you're not careful you'll end up
in someone's hungry tummy!

Mr. Turkey, run, run, run.
Please run away and hide!
Mr. Turkey, run, run, run.
Don't wait around outside!

This isn't just a turkey,
As anyone can see.
I made it with my hand,
Which is a part of me.

It comes with lots of love.
Especially to say,
I hope you have a very happy
Thanksgiving Day!

Thanksgiving is a Wonderful Thing

(To the tune of “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean”)

My uncle is eating the drumstick,
My auntie is chewing the wing,
My cousin in nibbling the stuffing,
Thanksgiving is a wonderful thing.

Bring back, bring back
Please bring anything left to bring
Bring back, bring back
Thanksgiving is a wonderful thing.

My daddy loves candied potatoes,
My mother, the cranberry ring,
My brother is covered with gravy,
Thanksgiving's a wonderful thing.

I'm A Little Turkey

(To the tune of "I'm A Little Teapot)

I'm a little turkey
on a farm.

Here are my feathers,
here is my beak.

When Thanksgiving comes
I get real freaked,

Please don't eat me
for your treat!

-- Coolest Thanksgiving Songs --

Who Am I?

(To the tune of “Mary Had a Little Lamb”)

See my feathers colored bright,
Colored bright, colored bright.
See my feathers colored bright
What a pretty sight.

See my tummy big and fat,
Big and fat, Big and fat,
See my tummy big and fat
What do you think of that?

See my head look all around,
Look all around, all around,
See my head look all around,
For corn up on the ground.

See me as I strut and sway,
Strut and sway, strut and sway
See me as I strut and sway
This is what I say: Gobble, Gobble, Gobble
