Note: Sung to the tune of The Christmas Song (1945), melody by Mel Tormé
Turkey’s in the Big Green Egg afryin’.
Feet up, warmin’ by the fire ablaze.
In the background, Yuletide carols aplayin’.
‘Cause I can’t wait ‘til Christmas Day!
Everybody’s comin’ in the next hour or so;
most near, and some from distant miles.
All eyes will be wide and all aglow;
their appetites as big as their smiles!
They’ll know the food is on its way!
Turkey and stuffin’ piled high upon the tray;
with every side dish that’s imaginable
(including plenty of vegetarian edibles!).
And then too soon it’ll all come to an end.
Folks’ll leave with lots of clean up to attend.
Yet I’ll know that I will say,
“I’m glad I hosted this day” and
(Uh, no, on second thought, this is way too soon!)
“Happy Thanksgiving to you!”
