Giving Thanks Always
It's thanksgiving man
'nough turkey, salad, dessert and ham.
We gathered one, we gathered all
Ignoring computer, work and mall
For once a year through snow or rain
Economy bad or rolling on
We all jump in thanksgiving jam.
Hear the sound of children play
See in- laws and blood take some- give way
Granny and Grandpa smiled on and on
Yes, we all enjoy thanksgiving jam.
Some by air, by rail and road
Shaking disappointment, delay and load
For nothing can mess or spoil this band
Heading with joy to thanksgiving jam.
And then the day comes; it's gone
Heads bob, hearts gallop, moods are up
Participants dance a jig or two
Grateful for food and family too
Delighted that this day will stand
A time for all a time for one
Forever live - thanksgiving jam.
Yet soon we go and soon forget
Thanksgiving jam is not s one night stand.
Wake up - give thanks - we could be dead
Have bread - give thanks - it could be lead.
Have friends - give thanks - many don't
Have health - give thanks - complaining less
For relief, many the world would give -no less.
Each day day we wake - go out - come in
Thanksgiving jam should be our thing.
Today our last it could be
Complaints forever makes a murky sea
We want to live, enjoy the moment
The end sometimes is quick and final
We would have lost life's greatest joys
Thanksgiving jam, thanksgiving jam
Wrapped in every moment man.
