Today is Thanksgiving Day in the US. We've been watching this video and talked about Thanksgiving celebration, so here it is to celebrate the day.

Hoy es Día de Acción de Gracias en Estados Unidos. Hemos estado viendo este vídeo y hablado de la celebración de Acción de Gracias, así que aquí está para celebrar este día.


An here are the lyrics: a good way to practise vocabulary.
Esta es la letra: una buena manera de practicar el vocabulario.

IT'S THANKSGIVING

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh yeah
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Alright
Come on
I’m wide awake
And I should take
A step and say thank you, thank you
For the things you’ve done, and what you did
Oh yeah, ooh yeah

December was Christmas
January was New Year’s
April was Easter
And the Fourth of July but now it’s Thanksgiving
Oh oh oh, it’s Thanksgiving
We we we, we’re gonna have a good time
Oh oh oh, it’s Thanksgiving
We we we are gonna have a good time
With the turkey (ey!)
And mashed potatoes (ey!)
We we we, are gonna have a good time
We need the turkey (ey!)
And mashed potatoes (ey!)
It’s Thanksgiving
It’s Thanksgiving

You know school is out
I can’t wait
I can shout thank you, thank you, thank you
No matter what you do, no matter what you say
This is my favorite day

December was Christmas
January was New Year’s
April was Easter
And the Fourth of July but now it’s Thanksgiving

Oh oh oh, it’s Thanksgiving
We we we, we’re gonna have a good time
Oh oh oh, it’s Thanksgiving
We we we, are gonna have a good time
With the turkey (ey!)
And mashed potatoes (ey!)
We we we, are gonna have a good time
With the turkey (ey!)
And mashed potatoes (ey!)
It’s Thanksgiving
It’s Thanksgiving

Yo, it’s Thanksgiving-givin’ and I’m tryin’ to be forgivin’
Nothing is forbidden, you know we gotta have it
I gotta give thanks to you, and you, and you
Can’t be hateful, gotta be grateful
Gotta be grateful, can’t be hateful
Mashed potatoes on my, on my table
I got ribs smelling’ up my neighbors’ cribs
Havin’ good times, we be laughin’ ’til we cry

It’s Thanks, Thanks, Thanksgiving
Come on It’s Thanks, Thanks, Thanksgiving
Give ‘em thanks, y’all

Oh oh oh, it’s Thanksgiving
We we we, we’re gonna have a good time
Oh oh oh, it’s Thanksgiving
We we we, are gonna have a good time
With the turkey (ey!)
And mashed potatoes (ey!)
We we we, are gonna have a good time
WIth the turkey (ey!)
And mashed potatoes (ey!)
It’s Thanksgiving It’s Thanksgiving

By the way, the Afro-American who appears in the video is the writer and producer of the song, Patrice Wilson, and Nicole Westbrook is 12 years old (if you were wondering.)

A propósito, el afroamericano que aparece es el escritor y productor de la canción, Patrice Wilson, y Nicole Westbrook tiene 12 años (para los que se lo pregunten).
