Turkey Songs


Five fat turkeys are we

We slept all night in a tree

When the hunter comes ’round

We won’t be found

That’s why we’re up here, you see!

I’m a very fine turkey

And I sing a fine song

Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble

All day long

I strut through the forest

I roost in the trees

And my favorite thing to eat is

Seeds, seeds, seeds!

I’m a turkey, very fat

I’m a turkey, skinny like that

I’m a turkey, very small

I’m a turkey, very tall

I’m the best turkey of them all!

(Use hands and body to act out fat, skinny, tall, etc)

The turkey is a funny bird

His head goes wobble, wobble

And all he says is just one word

Gobble, gobble, gobble!

Ten fat turkeys standing in a row.

They spread their wings and tails just so.

They look to the left-

They look to the right-

When they strut their stuff, they’re quite a sight!

But you won’t see them on Thanksgiving Day ‘Cause one by one, they’ll run away!

Ten, nine, eight, (etc.)

Mr. Duck went out for a walk

One day in pleasant weather

He met Mr. Turkey along the way

And there they talked together

“Gobble, gobble, gobble”

“Quack, quack, quack”

“Good-bye, Good-bye”

Then they both walked back


Thanksgiving Day is Coming and Mr. Turkey Said I better watch out, I better watch out, or they will have my head. The Turkey told the Pumpkin oh me oh me oh my, They’ll mix you up with Sugar and Spice and you’ll be Pumpkin Pie.


I’m a little turkey short and fat
Like to gobble how about that.
My daily corn I would not miss
and when I talk I go like this…. Gobble Gobble Gobble.


This is a cute little song that is easy for the kids to learn. They can strut around the center like little turkeys too!

“Flap your Wings

Shake your Tail

Turn around now

hit the trail.

If you’re a turkey

it’s time to trot

and stay away from

the roasting pot.

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble,

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble,

Gobble,

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble,

Gobble.”

Also, “Turkey in the Straw” is another fun song for the kids at Thanksgiving time.

Happy Thanksgiving!
