The day stars early, me in my robe
Washing the chicken and wiping my nose
The kettle is on, calling out the chicks name
I throw it in the pot, turn and wipe my nose again.
I throw some flour into a bowl
And add the yeast and warm water
Stirring and mixing til my fingers become numb
Hurry and cover it, because my hair has come undone.
I wipe my hair out of my face, and wash my fingers too
I grab a loaf of bread and start tearing it apart
Getting closer to making the dressing this year
Getting tired already, better grab me a beer.
Now get the eggs and put them in water
Let them boil until they are hard
Using my knife to cut them in half
One flipped on the floor and all I could do is sit back and laugh.
Making a chocolate dessert can be made ahead
I place pudding in a bowl and start adding the milk
I turn on the mixer and start out on low
I’m mixing it fine, then the telephone blows.
I race to go answer it, forgetting one thing
I didn’t turn the mixer off, now it has a mind of its own
I come back to the kitchen to see what I did
The pudding has exploded all over the lids.
I can do this, pour the green beans in a pan
Stir some mushroom soup in and add onions on top
I open the oven door to place this pan in
A mouse races out causing my mouth to sin.
Is this what Thanksgiving is all about
Fighting early morning and a nose full of snot
All this because I want turkey and more
Now here I stand a mess, while people are entering my door.
