Thanksgiving Day

Jesus had a Thanksgiving too
You can read about it in the Bible
He had his twelve closest friends there
They were sitting there beside him
He sliced the bread and he poured the wine
He said, sorry boys but tomorrow I’m gonna die
They said, yeah right Jesus, yeah right, you ain’t going nowhere
Sure enough, they got up the next day and found out its all over
Maybe things haven’t gone the way you’d hoped for lately
Just hasn’t been the year you’d planned
 
Thanksgiving day
Football on the tv, got a turkey in the oven
Think I’ll have a little slice of pie for desert 
Thanksgiving day
Save a seat for Grandma
She would have loved to have been here
But we lost her earlier this year
Thanksgiving day
Everybody join hands now, its time to give thanks
Time to count your blessings and name your losses
Thanksgiving day

Jesus liked to eat with crooks
He said drunks make better company
Than all them stiff religious folks
Filled with their pride and piety
People got mad and said hey man, hey man, hey man 
Why are you eating with all them losers and bums
He said, I was hungry did you give me something to eat
When I was thirsty did you give me something to drink
He said, no man, I’m sitting here with the people that love me
And I don’t care what you all think
