It’s Thanksgiving week!  Can you believe it?  This year really has flown by fast.  I, for one, am looking forward to some awesome food on Thursday.   But since it’s only Monday, today’s Monday’s Music Moves Me theme is any song that begins with ‘T’ – you know, in honor of Thanksgiving.  I had fun trying to find a song for this one, and I ended up with several.  Of course how can we not include Adam Sandler’s ‘Thanksgiving’ song?  Sure, some of the lyrics are risque, but it’s still a funny song:

Here are the lyrics (warning: some lyrics not meant for little ones):

“They wanna hear the thanksgiving song! All right..”
“This is uhh, This is the Thanksgiving Song”
“I hope you enjoy it.”

[Starts playing]
Love to eat turkey
Love to eat turkey

Shout from Crowd: “I love you Adam!”
Adam Sandler: “Ohhh, I love you!”
Love to eat turkey
‘Cause it’s good
Love to eat turkey
Like a good boy should
‘Cause it’s turkey to eat
So good

Adam Sandler: “That clappin’s messing my head up man. I appreciate it. But I was trying to think of the next line and all I hear is clapping. Here we go… Thanks anyways”

Turkey for me
Turkey for you
Let’s eat the turkey
In my big brown shoe
Love to eat the turkey
At the table
I once saw a movie
With Betty Grable
Eat that turkey
All night long
Fifty million Elvis fans
Can’t be wrong
Turkey lurkey doo and
Turkey lurkey dap
I eat that turkey
Then I take a nap

Thanksgiving is a special night
Jimmy Walker used to say Dynomite
That’s right
Turkey with gravy and cranberry
Can’t believe the Mets traded Darryl Strawberry
Turkey for you and
Turkey for me
Can’t believe Tyson
Gave that girl V.D.

White meat, dark meat
You just can’t lose
I fell off my moped
And I got a bruise
Turkey in the oven
And the buns in the toaster
I’ll never take down
My Cheryl Tiegs poster
Wrap the turkey up
In aluminum foil
My brother likes to masturbate
With baby oil
Turkey and sweet potato pie
Sammy Davis Jr.
Only had one eye

Turkey for the girls and
Turkey for the boys
My favorite kind of pants
Are corduroys
Gobble gobble goo and
Gobble gobble gickel
I wish turkey
Only cost a nickel
Oh I love turkey on Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Next up is a song from Alanis Morissette, simply called “Thank You” – this song is her reflection after a visit to India. She realized all the habits she had didn’t need to exist. It’s a humbling song about growth and gratification:

The lyrics:

How bout getting off of these antibiotics
How bout stopping eating when I’m full up
How bout them transparent dangling carrots
How bout that ever elusive kudo

Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

How bout me not blaming you for everything
How bout me enjoying the moment for once
How bout how good it feels to finally forgive you
How bout grieving it all one at a time

Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

The moment I let go of it was
The moment I got more than I could handle
The moment I jumped off of it was
The moment I touched down

How bout no longer being masochistic
How bout remembering your divinity
How bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
How bout not equating death with stopping

Thank you India
Thank you providence
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you nothingness
Thank you clarity
Thank you thank you silence

yeah yeah
ahh ohhh
ahhh ho oh
ahhh ho ohhhhhh
yeaahhhh yeahh

And finally, even though it doesn’t start with the letter ‘T’, this song from Louis Armstrong is an ode to the world and all the wonderful things you may see if you simply open your eyes. “What a Wonderful World” is a perfect song for helping give thanks during the holidays:

The lyrics:

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They’re really saying I love you.

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

It is a wonderful world, isn’t it?  Enjoy your Monday!

  1. I almost picked Adam Sandler this week too. lol I love it and Thanksgiving just isn’t the same without it. This week on SNL they showcased an all new Thanksgiving song and it’s a pretty good close second.

    The other songs are classics too. What a Wonderful World is such a beautiful song.

    Thanks for stopping by for MM. I am thankful for bloggie buddies like you. 🙂

  2. Whoa… I didn’t know Adam Sandler sang 🙂 I like Alanis, and I’m so glad you featured songs I’m not very familiar with; except What a Wonderful World. It’s one of my fave songs of all time. Great picks!

  3. Stacy;

    Three great songs. I almost posted Adam Sandler’s song.
    and Louis is just plain class in my book!
    Have a nice Thanksgiving Stacy and princess Naggers too

  4. I just saw this the other day, and laughed my butt off, and I was going to use it and forgot about it. Thanks for posting it’s a fun song. Look how young he is there. Dang! LOL It’s funny how you love a song, but never really understood the words, but who cares & now that I know the words – WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT MEAN? ROFL I still love her voice anyway. Alanis M. – And Louie Armstrong omg There couldn’t be no better choice for Thanksgiving. Great one, Girlfriend!!! Only one problem! This song always makes me cry! Totally love this song – They’re happy tears! Happy Thanksgiving from my home to yours! I’m thankful for friends like you!
