Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

"Under the Double Turkey"

Stan Freberg here with my take on Thanksgiving from my "U.S.A." album from Rhino, after this. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again with the first Thanksgiving:

"Whaddya mean, you cooked the turkey, Charlie?"

"Well, I cooked the turkey, that's all..."

"You put our national bird in the oven, is that correct?"

"Yeah, well, I...uhh..."

"And all of us had our mouths set for roast eagle with all the trimmings, huh?"

"Yeah, well, I...uhh..."

"You did a thing like that?"

"Well, the two birds were lying there side by side..."

"The turkey was for the centerpiece, Charlie, I mean..."

"Well, they looked so much alike that I, uhh..."

"Well, we blew it now, they're all sittin' down at the table out there..."

"Yeah, yeah..."

"...started on their little nut cups already. Just have to switch the birds, that's all..."

"Yeah, well..."

"...serve 'em turkey instead of eagle...but it's kinda scrawny looking, isn't it?"

"Yeah, well, I thought I'd stuff some old bread in it and make it look a little fatter."

(MUSIC: Frantic medley of "Under The Double Eagle" and "Turkey In The Straw".)
