I’m a perky disco turkey because I love to dance. (Wiggle and point disco style)
I know this may seem bizarre. (Hold your palms up)
It’s the coolest thing to do. (Thumbs up)
That’s why I’m such a star. (Bow or courtesy)
Step side to side, reach high and low.
Wiggle your shoulders
And make a pose. (Freeze in place momentarily for a photograph)
(Repeat) Side to side, high and low.
Shake your feathers (wiggle your shoulders and whole body)
And point your toes.
Now say gobble, gobble, gobble. (Gobble, gobble, gobble.)
And a strut, strut, strut. (And a strut, strut, strut.)
Do a wobble, wobble, wobble. (Wobble, wobble, wobble.)
And then we got stuck! (And then we got stuck!) WOW!
Repeat Verse (Sing along)
Now, we turkey discoed a mighty fine dance. (Wiggle and point disco style)
And we’re proud of how we moved. (Bow or courtesy)
It was so much fun, we don’t want to be done. (Thumbs up and then shake pointer finger)
So, let’s give it one more groove. (Hold your palms up)
Repeat Chorus and change last line to:
Then we all just said, “Good Luck!” (Hold your fist up)

This is a super fun great Thanksgiving dance I would love to incorporate into my dance classes. Any chance to gobble gobble cannot be passed up by any little one!
I’m a frog on a log when it comes to a blog! This may not be the right place but I suggest for songs I would like to see made into videos “Talk to the Animals” by Bobby Darin and “The Candyman” by Sammy Davis Jr. Thanks for making learning so much fun for everyone!
