Grandma was a wonder
At baking pumpkin pies;
The things that you would find in them
Were surely a surprise!

We missed things 'round the cabin,
We didn't know who grabbed 'em,
Why, Granddad lost his brand new shiny rake;
When Thanksgiving came around,
Guess where that shiny rake was found?
In the pumpkin pies that Grandma used to make.

One day my oldest sister
Lost the pink bow from her slipper;
For months she blamed it all on brother Jake;
When Thanksgiving came around,
Guess where that old pink bow was found?
In the pumpkin pies that Grandma used to make.

One morning at the table,
We missed our sister, Mabel,
Ma said that she was still not quite awake.
When Thanksgiving came around,
Guess where our Mabel dear was found:
In the pumpkin pies that Grandma used to make.

We lost our leather sofa.
Pa said he heard a loafer
Had dumped our leather sofa in the lake.
But I'm very glad to say,
That it was found Thanksgiving Day
In the pumpkin pies that Grandma used to make!
