Thanksgiving Day's not far away,
And most people call it a holiday.
It’s a holiday to the dogs and cats.
But that’s not all about what I’m at.
But Thanksgiving Day’s not a holiday
To the chickens and turkeys aroiind.

And pick up the axe from the ground.
The turkeys say they hate to see
Thanksgiving come around.
The leaves are gently falling down.
Settling themselves upcn the ground.
Around the house the cold v/ind blows;
The children are needing warm caps
The youngsters are watching
The clouds roll so slow,
V^ishing that it would snow.
But if there comes a blinding storm
They will still be wishing
That they were warm.
I m COUNTRY
I love my coiantry so good and true.
I love my country and so do you,
I love it here, I Iovg it there,
I v;ill love my country anywhere.
I left my coijintry and I was sad,
I am in my country and I am glad.
VHien I am in my country every day,
I feel happy, healthy, and gay.

‘V'Hien the flag is high and wide,

Vi’e squared with England long and slow.
V'e fought for the land that we live
But we will love it no matter what
we do or say.

But when it comes to geography
I’m apt tc spend the day,

The naughty one’s naine was Johnny
He had beautiful fur on his back.
The good one’s neime was Dandy Jim,
ioid that makes the two of them.
On one bright and summer day,

That was the last of Dandy Jim,
