"My mom used to sing this song to us with gestures. I have taught it to my grandchildren, who love it." -Judy

Mr. Duck and Mr. Turkey - American Children's Songs - The USA - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


This song originally comes from "Small Songs for Small Singers" (1907) by William Harold Neidlinger. Here's the original version:

Mr. Duck went to call on Mr. Turkey,
And he walked with a wobble, wobble, wobble,
And he said, "How do ye do?" to Mr. Turkey
Mr. Turkey said, "Gobble, gobble, gobble."
Mr. Duck then answered, "Quack, quack, quack!"
And turned around to go right back.
Mr. Turkey said, "I'll go with you."
And they looked so very queer those two.
Mr. Duck was walking, wobble, wobble, wobble.
Mr. Turkey talking, "Gobble, gobble, gobble."

This song is the 1st one that's sung on the video below. The lyrics to their version are:

Mr. Duck went to call on Mr. Turkey
And he walks with a wobble, wobble, wobble,
And he said, "How do you do?" to Mr. Turkey
Mister turkey said, "Gobble gobble gobble."
