From the recording Turkey Wants to Fly

Lyrics

Turkey Wants to Fly
Ellen McNutt
 
The jack-o-lantern's rotting
The leaves are brown and dropping down
I'm hungry now and wanting chow
The fattened turkey's running
Turkey wants his freedom
Tells me not to eat him
Drags me out and buys me lunch
 
Turkey wants to fly
Turkey wants to fly
Turkey wants to fly and have some fun
 
I dream of lumpy gravy
My tummy rumbles craving food
A turkey soup to change my mood
The turkey thinks I'm crazy
Turkey wants his freedom
Tells me not to eat him
Knocks me down and serves me punch
 
Turkey wants to fly
Turkey wants to fly
Turkey wants to fly and have some fun
 
Chase the turkey grab him by the tail 
Turkey takes a tumble
Turkey makes a gobbled yell
 
Turkey wants to fly
Turkey wants to fly
Turkey wants to fly and have some fun
Turkey wants to fly
Turkey wants to fly
Turkey wants to fly and have some fun, his freedom won
And never die
