A Little Boy's Thanksgiving Sentiment
And I tell you roast turkey with dressing is "boss".
So you'll not he surprised, I am sure, when I say
That I greet the approach of Thanksgiving Day.
We have one Thanksgiving a year, so I find;
'Twould be better to have one a week, to my
For our blessings are ours each week and each
Which we ought to acknowledge in some fitting
But the big folks have fixed it, and fixed it their
For things must all be as the big folks say;
So we'll just have to do as we always have done,
With one day each year for Thanksgiving fun.
