They gobble, gobble when they talk,
Yummy Yummy-O
They strut so proudly when they walk,
Yummy Yummy-O
With a strut-strut here, etc.

Turkey time is here again,
Yummy Yummy-OTheir chins are red, their necks are long,
Yummy Yummy-O
And soon they’ll sing another song,
Yummy Yummy-O
With a squawk-squawk here, etc.

(repeat strut and gobble sounds)
Turkey time is here again,
Yummy Yummy-O
