“FEEDING THE (WILD) TURKEYS”

FEEDING THE (WILD) TURKEYS*

Feeding the turkeys,

Feeding the turkeys,

Feeding the turkeys,

Oh come with me!

Out to the Camp Ground

Where they gather ’round,

Come feeding turkeys with me!

Feeding the turkeys,

Wild hungry turkeys,

Feeding the turkeys,

Oh, come with me…

Out to the woodshed

Where we have stale bread…

Come feeding turkeys with me!

Done feeding turkeys,

Done feeding turkeys,

So glad you were

There feeding with me…

We’re heading home to

Set up some tea to brew,

Wouldn’t you share my tea with me?

–Jonathan Caswell
