Short holiday rhymes


At one of my more recent workshops, I learned this cool rhyme about Thanksgiving from Megan Berben. Here it is:

The turkey is a silly bird.
His head goes wobble, wobble.
And he knows but just one word –
Gobble, gobble, gobble!

Here’s a song I used to sing as a round, that is great for Halloween:

Have you seen the ghost of Tom?
Long white bites with skin all gone!
Ooo, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.
Wouldn’t it be chilly with no skin on?
