Mankind has the strangest customs
He will celebrate anything.
A babyís birth, birth of a foal,
Or the arrival of any king.
What should we really celebrate?
What events are really sacred?
Is something that happened years past
Important to be made naked?
Why not celebrate life today?
Visit a friend you havenít seen.
How about that aging mother
Who aches to see kids on the scene.
Cook a meal for a homeless man
Serve it up as if he were king.
How about the sick and shut-in,
Wouldnít they like a favírite fling?
As we see the food thatís wasted
In one day in our blessed sphere,
We should feel the more compassion
As Thanksgiving Day comes each year.
