Thanks for the Memory

To Parody “Thanks for the Memory,” a popular song introduced in 1938 and made popular as the signature tune for Comedian Bob Hope:

Thanks for the Memory

Of gorging and puffing

From turkey and stuffing

Filled with sweet potato

And lettuce with tomato.


Of family and friends

And talk that never ends

Of hoping that no feuds

Grow out of ancient moods.


Of crucial third downs

That draw the frowns

Of mom who’s unable

To bring men to the table.


Of the many boasts

That come with the toasts

As dad reaches poetic heights

While the kids sneak bites.


Thanks for the memory

Of the warm and tasty repast

Of many Thanksgiving Days past,

While thinking often about

Those who are left out.
