Thanksgiving Day - Albuquerque The Turkey

Song Video


Albuquerque is a turkey,
And he's feathered and he's fine.
And he wobbles, and he gobbles,
And he's absolutely mine.

He's the best pet that you can get,
Better than a dog or cat.
Albuquerque, he's my turkey,
And I'm awfully glad of that.

Albuquerque, he's my turkey,
He's so cozy in his bed,
Because for our Thanksgiving dinner,
We had scrambled eggs instead.

Information About Thanksgiving Day - Albuquerque The Turkey

Thanksgiving Day - Albuquerque The Turkey tells the story of a turkey who is a child's pet, and escapes being eaten on Thanksgiving Day because of his revered status as a family pet. In the United States, Thanksgiving is a holiday in which families and friends gather in appreciation of the year's harvest; the holiday is celebrated with a huge feast, and the centerpiece of that meal is often a roasted turkey.

There has always been an attempt to create the Thanksgiving feasts around foods particular to America, so that American's might honor the tradition of the very first Thanksgiving, which many say took place in 1621, between the Pilgrim s (early settlers of America) and the local Native American tribe, the Wampanoag. who lived in and around the areas of Massachusetts where the Pilgrims were building the first colonies.

Some historical descriptions of that first Thanksgiving said that turkeys were part of the dinner, along with deer, chickens, fish, clams, berries, and other fruits and vegetables.

Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, made Thanksgiving an annual National Holiday, to be celebrated on the final Thursday of each November. Prior to that, Thanksgiving was a fairly regional holiday in the New England area of the United States.

Albuquerque is a silly name for a turkey! But it is a good name for the largest city of the State of New Mexico.

I sung this song in either kindergarten or first grade, but our Albequerque was a SHE, and the final verse had different lyrics: "Albequerque, she's my turkey She'll be cozy in her bed 'Cause for our thanksgiving dinner We will have pizza instead!"

My daughter came home singing this song from her second grade class but she was singing "alba-turkey" turkey. I about died laughing when I read the lil booklet she was reading from which read: "Albuquerque Turkey".
