The Lyrics

This one has been recorded at badave.com No big quote here, Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Like a Zoo

Got my whole crew

Gonna Flee and break it out

David's Turkey's c'mon

Uh Uh Uh

Lesson!
Better not be thinkin' about me
I ain't eatin' nothin' so that I'll be lean
I won't end up dinner like my mommy did last week
Better start over or get more berries

Question!
Why you tryna feed me all of this?
Trying to inflate me to fill up your kids
Live through 5 Thanksgivings and I've see all of your kills
Don't you think you'll miss me once you get your fill

The eggs I'm laying
(You scrambled)
The hay I sit in
(You paid it)
The barn I live in
(I sleep there)
but I'm no dumb turkey
(I'm talking)
The pig you saving
(Go cook him)
or that cow, Franklin
(He's mooing)
The kitchen oven
(Don't warm it)
You ain't eatin' me
(You ain't eatin' me)

All the Turkeys who Independent
(Throw your wings up at me)
All the chickens who dodgin' lynchings
(Throw your wings up at me)
All the roosters not wakin' farmers
(Throw your wings up at me)
All the birdies who really feel me
(Throw your wings up at me)

David, how your turkeys getting down like that
David, how your turkeys get down like that
Dave, I guess you better go and cook a ham
David, how your turkeys get smart like that

Tell me what you think about this
Hiding from your gun if I do wanna live
I run hard and heavy to escape you like this
Chickens it ain't easy living through all of it

Begging
Butterball ain't gettin' all they want
Oscar Meyer's short 'cause the turkeys here have won
If you wanna eat, looks like it's hot dogs that you'll warm
Depending on myself to stay out of your lunch

The feathers on me
(I grew 'em)
Your family's dinner
(I'm skipping)
The knife your wielding
(I'll kick it)
'Cause I will not feed thee
(You don't get it)
The farm I live in)
(I'll flee it)
The death I'm fearing
(Won't seal it)
So let this sink in
(Won't eat me)
You ain't eatin' me
(You ain't eatin' me)

All the turkeys who Independent
(Throw your wings up at me)
All the hens who ain't in the kitchen
(Throw your wings up at me)
All the chickens who still here kickin'
(Throw your wings up at me)
All the Vegans who just won't eat me
(Throw your wings up at me)

Dave, how are turkeys so smart like that
David, how your turkeys get down like that
Dave, I guess you better go cook a ham
David, how your turkeys get down like that

B.A. Dave's chics
(What's up)
They in the house)
(They stuffed)
We'll starve these people up
Turkey Style

B A Dave's Turkeys

Won't get stuffed on Thanksgiving

No I won't get eatin' Gee

David's Turkeys

Ohh
All the turkeys who independent
(Throw your wings up at me)
All the chickens who dodgin' lynchings
(Throw your wings up at me)
All the roosters not wakin' farmers
(Throw your wings up at me)
All the birdies who truly feel me
(Throw your wings up at me)

Great holiday (The only day of the week where you can pig out on turkey, don't have a cow, and be a complete animal). And a great parody!!! Oh, and great point of view.

Thanks Jason, AFW, Matthias, Rick, and Macphisto . . .Happy Thanksgiving to all of you also! (I'm having Oscar Meyer turkey --using a microwave--because last time I cooked a turkey I blew it up)

(ABC 4) Pretty darned funny...more for the idea of a soulful anthem for the turkeys by Destiny's Child than for the content itself, knowwhatimean? This was worth gobbling.
Red Ant - December 15, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC4-I) Great idea embedding the recording to play automatically, and a really awesome job with the recording - I know that must have been hard to do, but you pulled it off quite well. How many vocal tracks are there? Anyway, onto the lyrics, it took a minute for me to realize the p.o.v they were taking. Solid work, liked "Depending on myself to stay out of your lunch" the best.

555 for this Turkey, Sir Dave!

I've seen turkeys out on the farm get hypnotized seeing their reflections in the water provided for them to drink and fall head first into the drink and drown! I've also seen them walk strraight out of a barn loft and splat on the ground. How you turkeys so smart BAD? DKTOS on the song but I really enjoyed the audio. Well done! One freak of nature 5 legged turkey pasting up. HA - Comment security code is DDD. Dumb-Dumber-Dumbest.

ABC4-I-Let me commend you on making the connection between the OS and a turkey. I enjoyed your recording and your whole concept here.

(ABC4-I) Delicious little anthem for rebelling turkeys. Love it!

Stuart McArthur - December 25, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC4) Fantastic recording Dave - and what Laurie said - and what Invisible Boy said - turkeys are just funny to start with - lol - 555

(ABC) Great recording (that's my first time seeing that feature, how useful!) excellent pacing on a tough song, and original to boot! TMGLTM but the vegan line was particularly good.

(Thanksgiving) 555 flocks of rebellion. Great job, Dave!!
Matthias - December 01, 2010 - Report this comment
I enjoyed it when you put the recording on itself it's pretty cool. That's off topic but I did enjoy that. Anyways about your parody I thought it was hilarious and a great Thanksgiving tribute!
Christie Marie M - December 03, 2010 - Report this comment
"Young Turks be free tonight!"...or in Rod Stewart's case: "Young Hearts be free tonight!" So those turkeys won't end up as dinner! Sang from a turkey's POV! 555 flocks of laughter for this one! But don't mess with Birdzilla (a turkey from Disney's Homeward Bound movie).

(Holiday-Thanksgiving) Oh, forgot to tell you, your recording made it easier for me to v/c well. Pacing is solid and slamming!
