Well I hitched up the wagon and I drove down the road,
With a two horse wa-gon and a four horse load,
I saw a tur-key bird just a play'n in the hay,
But he sure couldn't have known it was thanks gi-vin' day.
Tur-key in the straw , in the straw, straw straw straw
Tur-key in the hay, in the hay, hay hay hay.
I ran and ran till my feet were sore,
but I aint nev-er gon-na catch the Tur-key in the Straw.
Well I had a Little chicken and she had a wooden leg,
She's the finest little chicken that has ever laid an egg,
Well she laid a lot more than any chicken on the farm,
But another little drink wouldn't do her any harm
Well if frogs had wings and snakes had hair,
And automobiles went a-flying through the air,
And if water melons grew on a huckleberry vine,
we'd have winter the the sunny summertime.
