This finger play is simple and fun
The turkey is a funny bird
(Hold up hand fingers together, thumb sticking out and point to with other hand) His head goes wobble, wobble.
(Point to head and move forward and backwards) The only word that he can say is…
(shake head and hold up one finger)
gobble , gobble, gobble.
(use hand to move like a beak)
One day a turkey went for a walk, (left index finger) He met a little duck so they had a little talk (right index finger) Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble (wiggle left index finger) Quack, quack, quack, quack (wiggle right index finger) Goodbye (left finger) Goodbye (right finger) And they both went back (put fingers behind back)
To the tune of “Clementine”
Albuquerque is a turkey
And he’s feathered and he’s fine
And he’s absolutely gorgeous
And he’s absolutely mine!
He’s the best pet
That you can get
Better than a dog or cat
He’s my Albuquerque Turkey and
I’m very proud of that!
(Sung To “Hooky Pokey”)
You Put You Turkey Wing In (put your elbow in) You Take Your Turkey Wing Out (put your elbow out) You Put Your Turkey Wing In And You Shake It All About You Do The Turkey Wobble (hands on hips and wobble) And You Turn Yourself Around That’s What Its All About!
