Thread Name: Don't forget Thanksgiving (songs)
Subject: Lyr Add: THE PILGRIMS AND THE INDIANS
Just when I thought all was lost (or at least a lot of tapes), my oldest daughter found a whole box, including (lo and behold) the Janeen Brady tape containg songs about holidays and seasons. Therefore, and not a day too soon, here are the words to the Thanksgiving song:

THE PILGRIMS AND THE INDIANS

The pilgrims and the Indians had a pow-wow a long time ago,
The pilgrims and the Indians felt like having a party and so,
The pilgrims and the Indians cooked a turkey and Indian corn,
Sat down and ate together, and that is how Thanksgiving was born.

The pilgrims and the Indians cooked a turkey and Indian corn,
Sat down and ate together, and that is how Thanksgiving was born.
doo doo doo 'n doo doo doo 'n doo doo da doo.

PS I'm thankful to be a citizen of the United States, whatever non-PC motivations the original colonists might have had.
