  Whose meal this is, I think I know
Its cook is in the kitchen, though
She will not see me stopping here
To grab a turkey leg and go

My appetite must think it queer
To stop, with stuffing oh so near
Between the rolls and chocolate cake
The biggest banquet of the year

Why not forgo my weight-loss shake?
Iím sure Iím making no mistake
To have more veggies, starches, meat ó
Ignore the pending stomachache

So what if I canít see my feet?
The meal canít really be complete
For I have pumpkin pies to eat
And pies to go before I sleep.
