They’re celebrating Thanksgiving on this very day,
My thoughts are at home, though I’m far away;

They’ll look to the next one and hope to be home.

They want you to be happy and enjoy your feast.
These holidays are remembered by one and all,
Those happy days we can always recall.
The ones in the future, will be happier, I know
When we all come back from defeating the foe.
