This is my adaptation of the song
Pull your hands right in.
Stick your elbows out.
Then you flap your wings G
And walk about. You can gobble to the left.
You can gobble to the right.
Then you shake your tail C
With all your might. (chorus) Gobble, gobble, 1 2 3 (chord C)
Gobble, gobble, 1 2 3 (chord F) Gobble, gobble, 1 2 3 (C) Gobble, gobble along with me! (CCGC) Repeat as needed. I got this additional verse from Scholastic’s Clifford’s Listen and Do poster: Strut like a turkey: go,go,go. Scratch like a turkey with your toe, toe, toe. Flap like a turkey with a wobble, wobble, wobble. Talk like a turkey with a gobble, gobble, gobble. (to chorus)
