Lyrics:
A Turkey Dance From the CD, Brain Breaks Action Songs: Let’s Move!
by The Learning Station
℗©Monopoli/The Learning Station
Verse:
I’m a perky disco turkey because I love to dance. (Wiggle and point disco style)
I know this may seem bizarre. (Hold your palms up)
It’s the coolest thing to do. (Thumbs up)
That’s why I’m such a star. (Bow)

Chorus:
Step side to side, reach high and low.
Wiggle your shoulders
And make a pose. (Freeze in place momentarily for a photograph)
(Repeat) Side to side, high and low.
Shake your feathers (Wiggle your shoulders and whole body)
And point your toes.
Now say gobble, gobble, gobble. (Gobble, gobble, gobble.)
And a strut, strut, strut. (And a strut, strut, strut.)
Do a wobble, wobble, wobble. (Wobble, wobble, wobble.)
And then we got stuck! (And then we got stuck!) WOW!

During music intro: Wiggle and point disco style

Repeat Verse (Sing along)
I’m a perky disco turkey because I love to dance. (Wiggle and point disco style)
I know this may seem bizarre. (Hold your palms up)
It’s the coolest thing to do. (Thumbs up)
That’s why I’m such a star. (Bow)

Repeat Chorus

Verse: (Sing along)
Now, we turkey discoed a mighty fine dance. (Wiggle and point disco style)
And we’re proud of how we moved. (Bow)
It was so much fun, we don’t want to be done. (Thumbs up and then shake pointer finger)
So, let’s give it one more groove. (Hold your palms up)

Repeat Chorus (and change last line)
Step side to side, reach high and low.
Wiggle your shoulders
And make a pose. (Freeze in place momentarily for a photograph)
(Repeat) Side to side, high and low.
Shake your feathers (Wiggle your shoulders and whole body)
And point your toes.
Now say gobble, gobble, gobble. (Gobble, gobble, gobble.)
And a strut, strut, strut. (And a strut, strut, strut.)
Do a wobble, wobble, wobble. (Wobble, wobble, wobble.)
Then we all just said, “Good Luck!” (Hold your fist up)
