While there are a bunch of songs that people sing at Thanksgiving -- okay, pretty much one: "We Gather Together" -- there aren't many about Thanksgiving. There's an awful one from the musical Promises, Promises, called "Turkey Lurkey Time," but this is actually a fairly pleasant one from a British musical, written by Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse, The Good Old, Bad Old Days. It's quite appropriately titled, "Thanksgiving Day."
