Over the River – Thanksgiving Parody

In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday, I think we ought to have ourselves a good laugh. Enjoy this heartwarming, cautionary tale of a classic family meal.

Over the Top and Through the Food

Over the top and and through the food
to Grandma’s table we go
We know it’s too much
we glut and stuff
our diets completely blown

Over the top and through the food
Oh, how family annoys us so!
They sting our pride
We stuff some pie,
I wonder who’s gonna blow?

Over the top and through the food
Can you make it just one day?
Another jab from Aunt Madeline,
Zing-a-zing-zing!
Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day!

Over the top and through the food,
Twitters are all the same!
Comfort in knowing
We’re all line-towing,
For this is Thanksgiving Day.

Over the top and through the food,
What a time to announce you’re gay.
Dad is working
on his scotch~
Dinner will have to wait!

Over the top and through the food~
Now for the dishes I sigh!
Hurrah for work!
To get away from that jerk.
Hurrah you survived this time!

The Original:

Over the River and Through the Woods

Over the river and through the wood
To Grandmother’s house we go.
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh
Through white and drifted snow.

Over the river and through the wood
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes
And bites the nose,
As over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the wood
To have a first-rate play.
Hear the bells ring,
Ting-a-ling-ling!
Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day!

Over the river and through the wood,
Trot fast, my dapple gray!
Spring over the ground
Like a hunting hound,
For this is Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river and through the wood,
And straight through the barnyard gate.
We seem to go
Extremely slow~
It is so hard to wait!

Over the river and through the wood~
Now Grandmother’s cap I spy!
Hurrah for fun!
Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!
