VIDEO: The Tofurky Song

Published on November 10, 2011 by   ·   4 Comments Pin It

Joanie Leeds (& her band – The Nightlights) are to the toddler set what Justin Bieber is to tweens.  She’s Nickelodeon’s Parent’s Pick Winner for Best Party Performer, an Independent Music Award Winner for Best Children’s Song,  and has won a Gold Parents´Choice Award.  But her song “The Tofurky Song” makes us extra proud to be parents to compassionate vegan children.   It makes us happy too.  Share it with all your veggie brethren for a holiday season full of things delicious and plant-based!

Sing along!

(Music and Lyrics: Joanie Leeds)

Some people don’t eat turkey. So what do they do?
On Thanksgiving they eat turkey but it’s made of tofu.

Tofurky’s not a turkey. It doesn’t run or fly.
Looks a little mushy, doesn’t have a turkey tushy, but I’ll give it a try.

Tofurky goes wobble, wobble, wobble. Not gobble, gobble, gobble.
You don’t need to call the drumstick ‘cause it’s really all the same.
Wobble, wobble, wobble. Not gobble, gobble, gobble.
You’ll save a turkey that way.

    This is cute, but why would they use real feathers to decorate a fake turkey in a song about not killing turkeys? Seems kind of weird to rip the feathers off other birds, dye them, and glue them onto a rubber glove turkey.

    Totally agree Hannah! NOT very vegan or kosher at all. Blech.

  3. I’m hoping those feathers are synthetic. The song is cute, though. I’m not really a big fake “meat” fan. I prefer the sides. Bring on the sweet potatoes.

    My kids and I went to a Thanksgiving themed story time at our library today. It was nice to see them reading stories where the turkeys got away. One was called “Run Turkey Run” and the other was about a group of kids who smuggle a bunch of turkeys off from a farm field trip, using the school bus as their getaway vehicle.
