Thanksgiving Song from Benjamin



Basketball season has arrived for my brother Stephen, so I am mother's guest writer today.
I wanted to share with you my Turkey song I learned at school.
Mom thought it was so funny that we decided this would be my post.
I wish I could sing it to you myself...but this will have to do instead.
I did put in my Turkey pictures.


Mom will see you again soon...thanks for stopping by - Her son - Benjamin

A Turkey Followed Me Home
Walking home from school one day, along a lovely street. When from behind me came a noise, the sound of tiny feet.
I spun around to see a bird, my jaw dropped to the ground. A turkey stood in front of me, his wattle swinging ‘round.
Turkey, turkey, go away! Please don’t follow me! I am going to my home and it’s not safe for thee!
Turkey, turkey go away! Let me make this clear. It’s Thanksgiving week, you see so please get out of here!
(Kid 1): But he followed me home anyway (Kid 2): Shoo! Go on! Git! Ohhh!





I hid him in the basement and I hid him in my room. I covered him with laundry, but there wasn’t wiggle room.
I tried to find the perfect place. I looked and looked and looked. For if I could not keep him hid, his goose was surely cooked!
Turkey, turkey, go away! Please don’t follow me! I am going to my home and it’s not safe for thee!
Turkey, turkey go away! Let me make this clear. It’s Thanksgiving week, you see so please get out of here!
(Kid 3): Thanksgiving came, Thanksgiving went….(Kid 4): Yeah, you were lucky. THIS time.



When December rolled around, we thought the coast was clear. I saw the turkey to the door. He had a cool veneer.
Keeping turkeys out of sight is not an easy thing. Take my advice, you turkey, you, and don’t come back ‘til spring!
Turkey, turkey, go away! Please don’t follow me! I am going to my home and it’s not safe for thee!
Turkey, turkey go away! Let me make this clear. It’s Thanksgiving week, you see so please get out of here!
Christmas is coming, the turkey’s getting fat! Don’t come back ‘til spring!

Mom says it is better when I sing it...but I hope you liked it anyway!

And so are the pictures...

Thank you so much for sharing this special thanksgiving post, Benjamin.

Wishing your whole family a happy Thanksgiving!

Sharon said...

Benjamin - what a great guest post! I loved the turkey photos you shared, and the song was really cute, too. I know, I have always felt sorry for the turkey, too. Maybe this Thanksgiving I'll just eat the potatoes and the stuffing...what do you think?!

GOD BLESS!

Bravo! Encore! That's cute, and I wish that I could hear you sing it too. I wish I knew the tune, but in my head I just made up one of my own.

And the turkey crafts? They're pretty wonderful too.

How I miss having a five year old!

And btw, hope the hoop season is going well, too.

Benjamin, I loved it! I remember singing this song with my kids when they were little....a long time ago.

Thanks for filling in for your mom. You did an EXCELLENT job!!

Sally said...

Good job on the turkey art. I have never heard that song but it was well done, even in writing.

Stephanie said...

I loved this little song. And you are going to have a lot of turkeys to shoo out of the house from all those great looking turkey art projects you made. Do you think they are maybe out of danger? Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
