Many years ago the Pilgrims came.
They sailed on a ship - the Mayflower was its name.
They sailed across the Atlantic blue,
So they could worship the way they wanted to.
Many people died along the way,
And the first winter was hard they say.
The Native Americans were already here.
They helped the Pilgrims plant corn and hunt deer.
They all got together to share food and pray,
And that's why we celebrate Thanksgiving Day!

COME AND PLAY
(sung to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)
Gobble Gobble Little Tom
How I wonder where you are
Up on the rooftop oh so high
Looking down from the sky
Won't you come and laugh and play?
We'll have a grand Thanksgiving Day.
Be thankful for home
Be thankful for food
Be thankful for birds that fly
Be thankful for sleep
Be thankful for flowers
Be thankful for clouds in the sky.
Be thankful for friends
Be thankful for rain
And the rainbows that follow close by.
