Ala bam a
It's a day that's meant for families,
To give thanks for all our blessings.
To carve a succulent turkey,
Fill up on cornbread dressing.
Sadly some call it "Turkey" day,
To me that is so sad,
It isn't Balladeer's birthday?
But for all of what we have.
Why celebrate the turkey?
Though it gave it's life for me,
To remind us of Thanksgiving,
That's how it's meant to be.
I'm thankful for so many things,
For my kids, my friends, my health
All these things mean much to me
They're how I measure wealth.
This year when I give thanks
I'll include LongJohn Silver too,
He's the one that brought me here,
So I could be thankful for all of you.
