  • "They want to hear the thanksgiving song! All right.."
    "This is uhh, This is the Thanksgiving Song"
    "I hope you enjoy it."

    [Starts playing]
    Love to eat turkey
    Love to eat turkey

    Shout from Crowd: "I love you Adam!"
    Adam Sandler: "Ohhh, I love you!"
    Love to eat turkey
    'Cause it's good
    Love to eat turkey
    Like a good boy should
    'Cause it's turkey to eat
    So good

    Adam Sandler: "That clappin's messing my head up man. I appreciate it. But I was trying to think of the next line and all I hear
    is clapping. Here we go... Thanks anyways"

    Turkey for me
    Turkey for you
    Let's eat the turkey
    In my big brown shoe
    Love to eat the turkey
    At the table
    I once saw a movie
    With Betty Grable
    Eat that turkey
    All night long
    Fifty million Elvis fans
    Can't be wrong
    Turkey lurkey doo and
    Turkey lurkey dap
    I eat that turkey
    Then I take a nap

    Thanksgiving is a special night
    Jimmy Walker used to say Dynomite
    That's right
    Turkey with gravy and cranberry
    Can't believe the Mets traded Darryl Strawberry
    Turkey for you and
    Turkey for me
    Can't believe Tyson
    Gave that girl V.D.

    White meat, dark meat
    You just can't lose
    I fell off my moped
    And I got a bruise
    Turkey in the oven
    And the buns in the toaster
    I'll never take down
    My Cheryl Tiegs poster
    Wrap the turkey up
    In aluminum foil
    My brother likes to masturbate
    With baby oil
    Turkey and sweet potato pie
    Sammy Davis Jr.
    Only had one eye

    Turkey for the girls and
    Turkey for the boys
    My favorite kind of pants
    Are corduroys
    Gobble gobble goo and
    Gobble gobble gickel
    I wish turkey
    Only cost a nickel
    Oh I love turkey on Thanksgiving

    Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
