Thanksgiving Turkey Song~I Don’t Want to Eat the Turkey

When my second son was in kindergarten 4 years ago, he came home one early November day singing the Thanksgiving Turkey Song~I don’t want to eat the turkey, with so much exuberance and gusto that it has stuck in all of our heads as a favorite each year. It is a cute little song about a child who has come to love the live turkey, and wants to keep it as a pet. This could get controversial (vegetarians?) and really some kids might get sad when thinking about it, so you decide if it’s right for your family.  We love it, so I wanted to share. It’s to the tune of Battle Hymn of the Republic which most adults know, and it’s easy enough for kids to catch on.
