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!
(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.
