The Lyrics

Happy Thanksgiving!
Waitin', watchin' the clock, it's four o'clock, Thanksgiving spot
Tell him, eat no more, the plate is out of reach
As he gives a stale roll, right to Rover
Pretends to cheer as halftime's over

She lies and says she wants to be slim, please pass the buttered yams
She eats some stuffing, she eats some bread, please pass the buttered yams
Please pass the buttered yams
I don't need the butter man

Ohh

Talkin' to herself, Is this guy deaf? Well I don't know
She tells herself, oh
Memories back when dinner was not so loud
And waiting for the food to come around
Man I knew it, he shortstopped me again!

She lies and says she wants to be slim, please pass the buttered yams
She eats some stuffing, she eats some bread, please pass the buttered yams
Please pass the buttered yams
I don't need the butter man

Yeah

She loved yams, but no one will pass them her way
He fed Rove, and that's why he'll be back again.

Please pass the buttered yams (3X)

Oh Ah Urpetc.

I think you are the first to do this one. I didn't get "when dinner was not so loud" but it was OK.

Thx. As the family grows the table gets louder. Thanksgiving is about the loudest table I know of :) Happy T-Day all!
