​We Gather Together (Thanksgiving Song)

This song is by Tom Lehrer.

We gather together to ask the lord's blessing
For turkey and dressing and cranberry sauce
It was slightly distressing but now we're convalescing
So sing praises to his name and forget not to floss
Our nearest and dearest we don't want confessing
It's sort of depressing to have them so near
Our feelings suppressing for lightly acquiescing
And perfectly professing we're glad they were here
We gathered together and got the lord's blessing
Of course we're just guessing 'cause how can you tell?
Our stomach's are bloating
Our kidneys nearly floating
Hellos are very nice but goodbyes can be swell!
