Thanksgiving day was coming,

My heart just filled with fear,

We better count our turkeys,

Make sure none disappear…

My mother called our turkeys,

To come back to the yard,

We had so many turkeys,

Adding would be hard!

How was I going to count all these turkeys?

I had a group of 8 turkeys,

And a group of 7 turkeys,

and a group of 2 turkeys,

and a group of 3 turkeys…

Well my mother said, don’t worry,

I have a little trick,

We’ll make groups of ten,

Count our turkeys quick!

My mother said, don’t worry,

I have a little trick,

We’ll make groups of ten,

Count our turkeys quick!

This is what I did,

This is what I did,

This is what I did, did, did, did, did!

I put the 2 with the 8 to make ten,

I put the 7 with the 3 to make ten,

Making groups of ten, easy to count,

Now I count by tens,

To get the right amount!
