If You’re Thankful and You Know It, Clap Your Hands

If you’re thankful and you know it,
clap your hands.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
clap your hands.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
then your face will surely show it.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
clap your hands.

If you’re thankful and you know it,
stomp your feet.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
stomp your feet.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
then your face will surely show it.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
stomp your feet.

If you’re thankful and you know it,
shout “I am!”
If you’re thankful and you know it,
shout “I am!”
If you’re thankful and you know it,
then your face will surely show it.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
shout “I am!”

Turkey and Stuffing (Tune of “Where is Thumbkin”)

Turkey and stuffing,
Turkey and Stuffing,
Pumpkin pie.
Ten feet high!
We were so much thinner,
Before we ate our dinner.
Me-oh-my!
Me-oh-my!

Turkey Wore His Rainbow Feathers
(Tune of “Mary Wore Her Red Dress”)
Turkey wore his red feather,
red feather, red feather.
Turkey wore his red feather all day long.
(Continue adding color feathers and singing)

Last Verse:
Turkey wore his rainbow feathers, rainbow feathers, rainbow feathers.
Turkey wore his rainbow feathers all day long.

Where is Thumbkin?
Where is Thumbkin?
Where is Thumbkin?
Here I am!
Here I am!

How are you today, sir?
Very well, I thank you.
Run away.
Run away.
