It’s Thanksgiving, and oh, do I have much to be thankful for. Most of all it’s the beginning of that season we call The Holidays. The bright lights that come with Christmas and Hanukkah. And it culminates in the end of the year celebration, New Year’s Eve. Then we’ll get another eleven months to recuperate before we’re called back into combat. But for this moment, let’s think about what we have to be thankful for. That special Someone. Family. Friends. Work. Our health. The food we have on the table. Life is good. Now, let’s eat.
Oh the turkey,
oh the dressing,
oh the pecan pie.
Now I’m bursting.
If you like to eat, and you like to eat good
C’mon down and get yourself a bite
Of the best darn food in the neighborhood
Open six of the seven both day and night.
A wisp of a smell, the aroma grows
As you drive your car to the way down there
Where the food is great, a delight for the nose.
A darn good odor, it fills the air.
Have a burger and fries, they’re the best
With onions and ‘maters and lettuce too.
So um um good, you’ll puff out your chest.
You’ll snap your fingers and tap your shoe.
Have a steak and have it rare
Right off the grill and on your plate.
It’s made just right, grilled with care.
The best darn steak you ever ate.
If you want your sushi sushitized,
If you want your venison venisonized,
If you want your fish without their eyes,
Come to the place with the blue ribbon prize.
So c’mon down and feed yourself,
All you gals and all you fellows,
‘Cause Sam’s the cook, Ella the chef
Of the diner they call the Sam ‘N’ Ella.
