(1st Verse)
Here we are once again
Right back where we began
Cooking in the kitchen
We’re watching holiday traditions
There’s a parade on TV
Floating by on the screen
The Lions & The Cowgirls
Battle for the drumsticks

(Chorus)
Do not lose heart*
This is our golden age
Do not let go of the memories we made
Though outwardly we are wasting away*
Do not let memories grow old and grey
Inwardly we are being renewed day by day*
Living in the moment making new memories
Remembering to give thanks for our friends and families

(2nd Verse)
Sitting at the table passing the peas
Bird in the middle mashed potatoes please
Sail that gravy boat over to me
Want to pour it over the white and dark meat
Asparagus, mushrooms, corn on the cob too
Three kinds of stuffing waiting for you
Marshmallows melted over Grandma’s yams
Cranberry sauce from the finest can

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
We made it through the good and bad
Here’s a toast to those we have and those we had
Wherever you are thanks for reminding us Dad
Grant the wish of the broken bone that made the loser sad

(3rd Verse)
Gobble gobbling dessert
Sweet potato and pumpkin pie
All over our shirt

*excerpted from 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
