About the Thanksgiving turkey, Bobby did whine,
You want me to eat, and its football time,
Can't I wait, so as the game to follow,

About the Thanksgiving turkey, Bobby did whine,
You want me to eat, and it's football time,
Can't I wait, so as the game to follow,
Or sit by the set and watch and swallow?

You want me to eat, and its football time,
Can't I wait, so as the game to follow,
Or sit by the set, and watch and swalow,
Help me please, please Grampa o' mine.


Sit down you old son of a', Jack did yell,
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

By the tense silence, you'd think a tree had fell,

Sit down you old son of a'..., Jack did yell,
By the tense silence, you'd think a tree had fell,
Bobby sat upright, while Laureen had as smile,
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Jack was shaking with anger all the while

Jack was shaking with anger all the while
Not sensing the nearing death knell.

A little allusion (to which I do not necessarily subscribe) that L.D. bore some responsibility in Jack's death.

A new one...

To spend time with Jack, his soulmate on Earth
Up on the high country they sometimes would ride

Who was the happiest they could not decide
Will you stop playing with that radio of yours, I'm trying to get to sleep!
