Thank you for the sun so bright,
Thank you for the stars at night.
Thank you for the food we eat,
Especially the turkey meat.
Thank you for my family,
Thank you for my friends with me.
Thank you for cranberries sauced,
Especially when they get lost.
Thank you for my house and home,
Thank you for my brush and comb.
Thank you for when things get smashed,
Especially for potatoes mashed.
Thank you for my TV shows,
Thank you for my runny nose.
Thank you for bivalve clams,
Especially thanks for candied yams.
Thank you God for all you give,
Thank you for my life to live.
Thank you for the food to try,
Especially the apple pie.
Listen to the song I sing,
Thank you Lord for everything!
