The Lyrics

This is obviously really late. I wanted to write this for the Thanksgiving Holiday challenge, but it was much harder than I thought. Anyway, here ya go! Original Song:
I just want one year with no concern
The past three years, we had to sit without a bird
Family was there with mouths all wide
Thanksgiving night, we had to wait for turkey time
Thanksgiving story time...

I can't tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it looks like
You can’t use a carving knife on its rough hide
I must eat, I haven’t eaten since last night
Give me a piece of delight, I want a small bite
Family has come, drunk while they wait
We all have stomach pains, and I hate it, why must we suffer? We should have ate
Now the turkey’s passed golden brown, and it’s looking nasty
“You heard of basting?! Now I’m leavin’!”
“Wait! Where you going?”
"I'm leaving you"
“No, you can’t!”
“I’ll be back with a small snack-
then I’ll eat again”
Not to be mean, but then I told my mom- “we should have ate
On Thanksgiving is when we need our “crack”, the food we crave”
But now she’s feeling awful, she feels so ashamed
They snapped “where’s the food?”
Guess that they will learn to wait
The turkey’s burning, no one sees the burning flame
I guess we will just have to wait

Just gonna stand there and watch it burn
Thanksgiving night, and we are stuck without a bird
The families here with mouths all wide
Thanksgiving night, and now this turkey’s way too dry
This turkey’s too damn dry
This turkey’s way too dry

You ever want some turkey so much
you can barely breathe just from thinkin’
The meat you could eat for days, AM or the PM
Man, it sounds so appealin'
Wait a year until you get it
There’s no way you get sick of looking at it
You woke and you’re not dreamin’
Only a few hours for the bird and
you can stuff it in your face
like a wedding cake, never finished
You put some potatoes there, cornbread’s fillin’
Wash it down, finished
So bored with the moments while you’re sittin’
And the bird’s in the oven
and not in your mouth
Hoping I won’t have to wait another day
Cause if my Uncle Lou
asks my way-“How was summer break?”
“Summer break is over, it's Thanksgiving Break!”
Looks like we’re waiting till next November
Cause she promised. Ha! “This year, we’ll eat by eight”
You should plan way in advance
Give me my Nintendo game
Cause we wait again
Now the family gets to leave from this “dinner”
With no turkey, brings our stomachs pain

Just gonna sit here, our tummies hurt
Thanksgiving night, and we are stuck without a bird
The families here with mouths all wide
Thanksgiving night, we wouldn’t care if it’s too dry
We don’t care if it’s dry
The turkey’s what we like...

Now we’re gonna try things, new things, cause it is year three
This year is different, won’t fall back in the same routine
Want it tender, juicy with no dryness
And we’ll eat by three
And when the dinners done, you'll be rewarded
Family will come back
Let’s start the food, stuffing and gravy
And our great pumpkin pie is delicious with whipped cream
Now we can just relax, watch some Sopranos, play the piano
All I know is I’ll love all the food around the table
Dinner time, you stop the family while they talk
Tell them that the food’s ready- they won’t leave to some wok
“Past two years were my fault
but this year’s Butterball
It looks golden crisp, let’s have a taste!” We stare with awe.
Inside, can’t get the knife inside
Now tears fill my eyes cause it’s filled with ice
Thawing is no game, please just take it back
Need the food I desire
I feel bad cause this year she messed up again
“I wonder if Subway is open at this hour?
Now who’s drivin’...?”

Don’t know how this day can get much worse
Thanksgiving Night, and we are stuck without a bird
The families here with mouths all wide
Thanksgiving night, and now this turkey’s filled with ice
Can’t get the turkey right
Six inch turkey on white

Hey Abbott! - This one is certainly no "turkey". Perhaps this is why Shady is so Slim. ;D

(SOTM) Excellent job Abbott! This song is incredibly hard to parody, and your pacing in this one was really good. straight 555's!

I can realize how difficult it is to parody this song (I mean I wanted to parody it but I couldn't come up with an idea). So I need to give you props for that as well as writing an entire rap song about Thanksgiving (which had to be tough). I did an entire song about a Belly Flop in just a few hours so I realize when inspiration hits you, you can really go to town. This was fun. Just plain fun.

(SOTM) A little bit too much cribbed from the OS for my liking here, but then at least that gave me a idea of where I was because this was a bit tricky to follow. Also, I just didn't find this funny...I think it's because the idea wasn't really taken anywhere, it was sort of "Okay, guy can't get the turkey right...and?". Just not enough substance, I guess. Pity, I really like this OS, but this parody just seemed lackluster. But that's me. Pacing was pretty good, despite how hard it was to follow and all.

Like most Thanksgiving parodies it has its limits, but damn if this isn't the most epic parody dedicated to it "Of All Time". . .and I always love seeing new hits get targeted. Good parody overall.
