Hello Mr. Turkey

(Tune of Happy and You Know It)
“Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble” says the bird
“Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble” says the bird
Mr. Turkey gobbles-gobbles and his feet go wobble-wobble.
“Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble” says the bird 

Walk Like a Turkey
Walk like a turkey, waddle, waddle, waddle.
Talk like a turkey,  gobble, gobble, gobble.
Run like a turkey, ‘round and ‘round.
But when it’s Thanksgiving,
Don’t make a sound! 

Five Little Turkeys
Five little turkeys by the barn door,
One waddled off and then there were four.
Four little turkeys out under the tree,
One waddled off, and then there were three.
Three little turkeys with nothing to do.
One waddled off, and then there were two.
Two little turkeys in the noonday sun,
One waddled off, and then there was one.
One little turkey-better run away!
Soon it will be Thanksgiving Day!

Comments: We also used egg shakers with Laurie Berkner’s (I’m Gonna Eat) On Thanksgiving Day, they enjoyed the song but it wasn’t a huge hit. I used the turkey puppet for most of the rhymes which was slightly frightening for me and some of the children. I liked Bear Says Thanks, but it’s not as grat as other Bear titles and the concept of a bare cupboard seems slightly confusing.
