SONGS

The Pilgrims Came

Viking Council

(Tune: Yankee Doodle)

The Pilgrims came across the sea
 From England far away;
And now we think of them
When it's Thanksgiving Day.

The Mayflower was their sailing ship,
Across the waves and foam;
They landed here on Plymouth Rock,
And this was their new home.

The bitter winter was so hard
That many Pilgrims died;
By spring they had some growing crops,
And Indian friends besides.

When harvest time came they were glad;
They had learned many things.
The Indians joined them in their feast,
Their first Thanksgiving.

Some folks think that they were sad,
I think that they were gay.
We thank the Pilgrims every one
For our Thanksgiving Day.

 

Our Pilgrim Forefathers

Viking Council

 (Tune: "Battle Hymn of the Republic")

They came as strangers to a wild land, brave and unafraid,
In spite of many hardships they still bowed their heads and prayed;
"We're thankful for the growing crops, the beauty of our land,
And freedom; to live as we planned."

Chorus:
Our pilgrim fathers make us proud,
They accomplished what they vowed,
We will sing their praises loud,
And freedom marches on.

Squanto was an Indian and he helped the Pilgrims out.
He taught them how to plant their corn and how to fish for trout.
They hunted in the woods for deer and caught wild turkeys too,
He was their friend so true.

Chorus

Bradford was the Governor, he was just and fair.
He thought it was important that each man received his share.
He planned the first Thanksgiving holiday to celebrate
A harvest good and great.

Chorus

Columbus Round

Viking Council

(Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)

Columbus proved the world was round,
World was round, world was round,
Columbus proved the world was round,
And a brand new land he found.

Columbus sailed in a little ship,
Little ship, little ship,
Columbus sailed in a little ship,
And off the edge he didn't slip.

Columbus sailed for the Queen and King,
Queen and King, Queen and King,
Columbus sailed for the Queen and King
So he got to do 'His Thing'.

 

Turkey Song

Southern NJ Council

(Tune: Bring back my Bonnie)

My turkey went walking one morning,

The November weather to see.

A man with a hatchet approached her,

Oh, bring back my turkey to me

(Chorus)

Bring back, bring back

Oh, bring back my turkey to me, to me.

Bring back, bring back

Oh, bring back my turkey to me, to me

I went down the sidewalk a shoppin'

The signs in shop walks to see

And everywhere hung Great Fat Gobbler

Oh, bring back my turkey to me

(Chorus)

I went out to dinner and ordered,

The best things they had I could see

They brought it all roasted and sizzling.

They brought back my turkey to me

(New Chorus)

Brought Back, brought back

They brought back my turkey to me, to me

Brought back, brought back,

They brought back my turkey to me, to me.

 

Turkey

Heart of America Council

(Tune: My Country Tis of Thee)

My turkey, 'tis of thee,

Sweet bird with gravy, of thee I sing.

I love thy breast and wings,

Back, legs and other things.

I love thy sweet stuffing,

All but the neck.
