I DO LIKE A LITTLE BIT OF TURKEY AT CHRISTMAS TIME
 
div
 

I do like a man with a hobby that he crams down everybody else's throat
Such as growing prize tomatoes, or extra large potatoes
My only hobby is my work, I work at a brewery
But when it comes to weaknesses there's only one with me.

Chorus: I do like a little bit of turkey at Christmas time
Must 'ave a little bit of turkey at Christmas time
Don't like ham, that's too light, I've got a pretty good appetite
Give me a little bit of what I like
And I'm all right, quite all right
But I do like a little bit of turkey at Christmas time
That will suit me absolutely fine
Any old place, any old where
Put what you like upon the bill of fare
But give me a little bit of turkey at Christmas time.

'Twas Christmas day in the workhouse. Ah, you've heard that one before
Well they cursed that Christmas pudden, and said it wasn't a good 'un
One chap said, 'In this lump I've got, there's only about two plums
Although I've only two teeth left you need yer blinking gums.'

Chorus 1: I do like a little bit of turkey at Christmas time
Must 'ave a little bit of turkey at Christmas time
Don't like ham, that's too light, I've got a pretty good appetite
Give me a little bit of what I like
And I'm all right, quite all right
But I do like a little bit of turkey at Christmas time
That will suit me absolutely fine
Whether it rains, whether it snows
I must have a nibble at the parson's nose
But give me a little bit of turkey at Christmas time.

Chorus 2: I do like a little bit of turkey at Christmas time
Must 'ave a little bit of turkey at Christmas time
Don't like ham, that's too light, I've got a pretty good appetite
So, give me a little bit of what I like
And I'm all right, just quite all right
But I do like a little bit of turkey at Christmas time
That will suit me absolutely fine
I'll wash it down with ale or stout
Even if I have my appendix out
But I must have a little bit of turkey at Christmas time.
