(Melody by Percy Montrose, 1884, Traditional Lyrics)
Albuquerque is a turkey,
And he’s feathered and he’s fine
And he wobbles and he gobbles
And he’s absolutely mine.
He’s the best pet that you can get,
Better than a dog or cat,
He’s my Albuquerque turkey,
And I’m awfully proud of that.
And my Albuquerque turkey
Is so happy in his bed,
‘Cause for our Thanksgiving dinner,
We had scrambled eggs instead.
