Where's the Ode to the Turkey?

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it just occurred to me that we have thousands of famous Christmas songs but no Thanksgiving songs (that I know of). Why is this?

They usually play "Alice's Restaurant" to death at Thanksgiving.

There really is only so much material you can mine out of Turkeys, Pilgrims and Pumpkin Pie.

But songs that relate to "thanks" is another story.

"Thanks For The Memories"
"Thank You (falettinme be mice elf agin)"
"Thank Heaven For Little Girls"
Ok, maybe not the last one.

I'm guessing 'Stuffing Martha's Muffin' by Mojo Nixon and the Toadlickers doesn't qualify does it, despite the use of the word stuffing in the title?

Anything by Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper/Toadliquors is appropriate for Thanksgiving in my house.

Adam Sandler also has a Thanksgiving song.

Elton John had a song called "Ho Ho Ho! (Who'd Want to Be a Turkey at Christmas)". Too bad he didn't put "Thanksgiving" in there instead.

And, there's always "Turkey in the Straw"... LOL
