In the days of our
founders, they were
willing to give thanks
for mighty little,
for mighty little
was all they expected. ...
Those old boys in the Fall
of the year, if they could
gather a few pumpkins,
potatoes and some corn
for the Winter, they was
in a thanking mood.
But if we can't gather in
a new car, a new radio,
a new tuxedo and some
Government relief, we feel
like the world is agin' us.
