Please help me to be grateful on this Thanksgiving Day
And make the gravy nice and smooth (is what I mean to say).
I pray the turkey's tender and moist and satisfying.
And if the yams are cooked enough, that will be gratifying.
To have the oven on all day means heating up the kitchen.
I know, I know. Now I'll shut up...so sorry to be bitchin'.
Don't mean to cause a problem while football's on the screen.
Don't want to be sarcastic, nor belicose, nor mean.
I promise to be tolerant when wine spills on my table
I'll just get up and clean it off as quickly as I'm able.
Please give me strength and wisdom to get me through the day.
And get me through the cleanup fast (that's really what I pray).
Black Friday sales are looming large and causing a sensation.
Hopefully I can resist! Avoiding that temptation.
Let's raise a glass and toast our town. 'Salud' and 'Down the Hatch'.
Bless us each and everyone, especially our Patch.
Behind the scenes there is a guy who makes this all look pretty.
His name is Mike (our editor), he's Mr. Studio City
