"The Turkey in the Straw" as written by Maurice Jarre and Traditional,....
There's a country dance
At the only hole in town
And everybody comes from all around
They want to hear a gobble
And that scratching on the ground
They come from far and wide
To hear that turkey sound

[Chorus:]
Turkey in the straw
Haw, haw, haw
Turkey in the hay
Hay, hay, hay
And the old folks dance
With their mother-in-law
As they dance to a tune
We call turkey and the straw

They dance to the left
And they dance to the right
They dance to the tune
All thorough the night
And a shriek and a gasp
It gave them such a fright
A turkey dancing with them
What a wonderful sight

[Chorus: Repeat 2X]
