Talking Turkey by Benjamin Zephaniah

A plea for Turkeys United at Christmas time !

Be nice to yu turkeys dis Christmas

Cos turkeys jus wanna hav fun

Turkeys are cool, an turkeys are wicked

An every turkey has a Mum.

Be nice to yu turkeys dis Christmas

Don't eat it, keep it alive,

It could be yu mate an not on yu plate

Say, Yo! Turkey I'm on your side.

O got lots of friends who are turkeys

An all of dem fear Christmas time,

Dey say Benj man, eh, I wanna enjoy it,

But dose humans destroy it

An humans are out of dere mind,

Yeah, I got lots of friends who are turkeys

Dey all hav a right to a life,

Not to be caged up, an genetically made up

By any farmer an his wife.

Turkeys jus wanna play reggae

Turkeys jus wanna hip hop

Havey you ever seen nice youn turkey saying,

I cannot wait for de chop ?

Turkeys like getting presents, dey wanna watch Christmas TV

Turkeys hav brains an turkeys feel pain

In many ways like yu an me.

I once knew a turkey his name was turkey

He said Benji explain to me please

Who put de turkey in Christmas

An what happens to Christmas trees?

I said, I am not sure Turkey

But it's nothing to do wid Chris Mass

Humans get greedy and waste more dan need be

An business men mek loadsa cash.

So be nice to yu turkey dis Christmas

Invite dem indoors fe sum greens

Let dem eat cake an let dem partake

In a plate of organic grown beans,

Be nice to yu turkey dis Christmas

An spare dem de cut of de knife,

Join Turkeys United an dey'll be delighted

An yu will mek new friends FOR LIFE
