Our First Thanksgiving Day: A Thanksgiving Medley
Across the Atlantic Ocean, a long time ago
Came pilgrims in the Mayflower, a new world to know.
Freedom of religion was what they sought;
Starvation and illness were problems they fought.
But the people worked together,
And some friendly Indians taught
These pilgrims how to better use the new land they got.
So it wasn’t long before they could say:
“We’ve made it through this first hard year:
Let’s have a feast and thank the Lord;
We’ll have a grateful Thanksgiving day!”
Tag: So they had a feast to celebrate
Our first Thanksgiving Day!)
*Note: Sung to the traditional tune of:
“Over the River and Through the Woods.”
(Follow song by singing the traditional song below.)

“Over the River and Through the Woods”
Over the river and through the woods,
To Grandmother’s house we go;
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh,
Through the white and drifted snow.
Oh, over the river and through the woods,
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the nose and it bites the toes,
As over the ground we go!
Tag: Yes, it stings the nose and bites the toes
On our first Thanksgiving Day!
