Some Thanksgiving Songs

I have had many people looking for Thanksgiving songs and poems. I thought I would share some with you here.

These songs are from "Piggyback Songs":

A THANKSGIVING SONG
Sung to: "The Farmer in the Dell"

The pilgrim says thanks,
The pilgrim says thanks,
Hi Ho on Thanksgiving
The pilgrim says thanks.

The turkey says gobble,
The turkey says gobble,
Hi Ho on Thanksgiving
The turkey says gobble.
Linda Blum, Scotia, New York

HA HA TURKEY IN THE STRAW
Sung to: "Skip to My Lou"

Turkey in the brown straw, ha ha ha
Turkey in the brown straw, ha ha ha
Turkey in the brown straw, ha ha ha
Skip to My Lou My Darling
Ha, Ha, Turkey in the straw
Ha, Ha, Turkey in the straw
Ha , Ha, Turkey in the straw
Turkey in the straw My Darling

Other verses:
Turkey in the white snow, ho ho ho
Turkey in the blue sky, hi hi hi
Turkey in the yellow corn, horn, horn, horn
Turkey in the green tree, he he he
Turkey in the red hay, hay hay hay

Jean Warren

I'M A LITTLE INDIAN
Sung to: "I'm a Little Teapot"

I'm a little Indian on the go,
Here is my arrow, here is my bow,
When I go a hunting, hear me shout
BEARS AND BUFFALO BETTER WATCH OUT!

Rita Jamieson, Costa Mesa, California
(We act this song out and SHOUT the last line)

These songs are from "More Piggyback Songs":

LET US GIVE THANKS
Sung to" Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush"

Thanksgiving Day will soon be here,
Soon be here,soon be here.
Thanksgiving Day will soon be here.
Let us now give thanks.

For the bessings of the year,
Of the year, of the year.
For the blessings of the year.
Let us now give thanks.

For our homes we love so dear,
Love so dear, love so dear.
For the homes we love so dear.
Let us now give thanks.

Betty Ruth Baker, Waco, Texas

SMELLS LIKE THANKSGIVING
Sung to" Frere Jacques"
Smells like Thanksgiving, smells like Thanksgiving
Mmmm so good, mmmm so good
I can smell the turkey, I can smell the pies
Mmmm so good, mmmm so good.

Jean Warren

MR. TURKEY
Sung to: "Frere Jacques"

Mr. Turkey, Mr. Turkey,
Run away, run away.
If you are not careful,
You will be a mouthful,
Thanksgiving Day,Thanksgiving Day.

Dr.Margery A. Kranyik, Hyde Park, MA

I have posted before that these are two of my favorite resources for songs.
