Johnny's Thanksgiving Family |
Johnny was a grown-up boy, who
Spent lots of money on big guy toys,
And when it came to friends, he only chose the elite,
He was an impressive young man to say the least.
Then on a cold November day,
He remembered Thanksgiving was drawing near,
A time set aside once a year,
When folks gathered with family, they held dear.
Preparations he began to make,
A turkey with all the trimmings
And a pumpkin pie,
These thoughts made Johnny feel warm inside.
One thing Johnny seemed to forget,
Is where he'd seen his family,
The last time they met,
Their telephone number
He could not remember,
And it was kind of fuzzy,
Where they lived last November.
This is not a problem little Johnny said,
His family was old and uncultured anyway,
He would rent himself, a six figure one
For Thanksgiving day.
Johnny's Thanksgiving Family
