Tune-"Good bye, Charlie." Written and Sung by Gus Williams.
Oh! how I envy dose dot have dere darkeys glose by home,
Vile I to get a decent vone along de sdreets must roam;
Danksgiving comes but vonce a year, you know dot I can see,
Und ven I left my house last nide my wife she said to me:
"Good-bye, Goosie, ven you do go out,
Get me a durkey, dear, to eat Danksgiving, dear;
Good-bye, Goosie, ven you do go out.
Don't forged dot durkey, darling."
Id's nice to have a durkey for to ead Danksgiving Day,
Because it comes but vonce a year, and den passes away.
Id's nice to have an appedide, ven on durkey you're sduck,
But awful bad in raffling, for not to have some luck.
Spoken-I never did have much luck, and id vill be a gread deal vorse dan
ever now, und all because my wife said:-Chorus.
