“The Thanksgiving Song” by Adam Sandler

This week for Song Lyric Sunday, Jim Adams has prompted us with songs pertaining to Bounty/Dessert/Eat/Feast/Food/Hungry/Turkey.

On November 21, 1992, Kevin Nealon played the news anchor for Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live (SNL). The segment was meant to be the beginning of SNL cast members to write & perform a song each Thanksgiving holiday, however, the next year Adam Sandler performed a different version of the song in a Bruce Springsteen style with the help of Nealon. On July 25, 1993, Sandler performed this song at The Strand in Redondo Beach, California. This performance was recorded & was featured on Sandler’s debut album “They’re All Gonna Laugh At You”. Sandler has gone on to have a huge career in film & his comedic following isn’t too shabby either. Both versions revolve around nothing but TURKEY! Happy Thanksgiving all!

"They wanna 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 dee 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 gee and
Gobble gobble gickel
I wish turkey
Only cost a nickel
Oh I love turkey on Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
Song Writers: Adam Sandler, Ian Maxtone-Graham & Robert Smigel

  1. Adam Sandler is always so funny! Hadn’t heard this one – just the Hanukkah one. There’s not many songs about Thanksgiving like there are for Christmas, or even the funny Halloween songs. πŸ™‚
