And journeyed many a day and night
To worship God as they thought right.

Decided she'd better scoot
When she heard the sound
Of the little pilgrim's boots.

Went to climb a tree.
He climbed too high
And fell and skinned his knee.

Didn't have a care.
She went running in the woods
And saw a pilgrim there.

The fifth little turkey
Was left all alone.
He started to cry
And ran all the way home.
