Subject: Lyr Req: Thanksgiving song - can't kill turkey

I'm looking for a song I learned in grade school in the 1970s about a family that raises a turkey for Thanksgiving, but then doesn't have the heart to kill him. I'm looking mainly for the lyrics, but I'd love to know the composer's name and have the sheet music! Part of the lyrics go:

"The pudding's cooking in the pot.
It's made with plum and apricot,
But everything seems absurd.
No one can kill the bird.
We all have grown attached to him,
And on this holiday,
I left the door unlatched for him
So he could get away."

Thank you!
Doris

I think it starts like this...

The carving knife is sharp and keen,
we're washed and dressed, our hands are clean,
but mother's making quite a scene,
cause no one can kill the turkey!

Albuquerque is a turkey and he's feathered and he's fine
Albuquerque is a turkey and he's absolutely mine
He's the best pet you can get yet, better than a dog or cat
And he wobbles as he gobbles and he's awfully proud of that
Albuquerque is a turkey and he's happy in his bed
'Cause for Thanksgiving dinner, we eat egg fu yung instead.

(to Clementine)
