'Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving
Happy Thanksgiving - let's talk turkey
'Twas the night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't sleep -
I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep;
The leftovers beckoned – the dark meat and white,
But I fought the temptation with all of my might!
Tossing and turning with anticipation...
The thought of a snack became infatuation.
So I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door
And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore!
I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes...
Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes;
I felt myself swelling, so plump and so round,
‘Til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground -
I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.
But I managed to yell as I soared past the trees...
Happy eating to all, pass the cranberries, please!
May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes ‘n gravy have ‘nary a lump;
May your yams be delicious, may your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs!
