Thanksgiving Day, Mom’s cooking dinner,
Everybody’s hungry on Thanksgiving Day.
Daddy said, "Son, go catch a turkey,
Catch us a turkey for Thanksgiving Day."

Put on my boots, put on my jacket,
Put on my hat on Thanksgiving Day.
Got a big bag to hold my turkey,
Gonna catch a turkey for Thanksgiving Day.

Walked pretty far, seemed like forever,
Deep in the woods on Thanksgiving Day.
Looked in the trees, looked in the bushes,
Looking for a turkey on Thanksgiving Day.

Then I heard something, kinda like a gobble,
Sounded like a turkey on Thanksgiving Day.
Heard it again, gobble gobble gobble,
Gonna catch a turkey on Thanksgiving Day.

Thought I saw it move, walked a little faster,
Walked a little faster on Thanksgiving Day.
I can see it now, close to the bushes,
Gonna catch a Turkey on Thanksgiving Day.

The turkey saw me looking through the bushes,
Looking through the bushes on Thanksgiving Day.
Turkey got scared, started a runnin’,
Running away on Thanksgiving Day.

I ran too, after the turkey,
Chasing a turkey on Thanksgiving Day.
I ran fast, fast as a rocket,
Gonna catch a turkey on Thanksgiving Day.

Turkey ran faster, fast as lightning,
Runnin’ away on Thanksgiving Day.
I ran too, fast as I could,
Gonna catch a turkey on Thanksgiving Day.

Go Go Go, catch that turkey!
Go Go Go, he’s getting away!
Go Go Go, catch that turkey!
Go Go Go, he’s getting away!

Oh, Thanksgiving Day, eating some duck,
Didn’t catch a turkey on Thanksgiving Day.
I like duck, ducks are slower,
Having a feast on Thanksgiving Day.
