CEDRICK TURKEY
Tune:  Turkey in the Straw
Words by Arlene Evans

 

Cedrick Turkey was scratching in the ground.
Yelling gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble all around.

He is quite a handsome turkey with his tail so big and round.
And he gobble, gobble, gobbles as he's struttin' all around.

Refrain

Top of the wood pile, behind the tree,
Up in the hay loft - - - Where can he be?
Oh, Cedrick Turkey whatever you do,
There'll never be another turkey quite like you!

 

His big red head goes popping up and down,
As he gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble, gobbles all around.

He is the smartest turkey that ever can be found.
And he gobble, gobble, gobbles as he's struttin' all around.

Refrain

Thanksgiving time was coming so he didn't make a sound.
And he didn't gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble all around.

When the farmer looked for him, he just could not be found!
And there wasn't any gobble, gobble, struttin' all around.

Refrain 2

Out in the woods now, behind the tree,
We never will find him - - - Where can he be?
Oh, Cedrick Turkey whatever you do,
There'll never be another turkey quite like you!
