I’ve got plenty to be thankful for

I love the Bing Crosby song from “Holiday Inn” that he sings (while missing his love, who has recently become engaged to another man) on Thanksgiving.  So he is a little grumpy, but the song on its’ own is a happy, grateful, true story!

Best lines from this clip?

Mamie: Women has to have them things told to them the right way.  You could melt her heart right down to butter, if you’d only turn on the heat.

Jim considers what Mamie is telling him.

Jim: Well, sure.  [He is now resolved] Women has to be told things the right way.

Uh, yeah.  Right.  Anyway, I am singing this song all day today!  Sing with me, come on!  I have included lyrics!  Because I am nice like that.

I’ve got plenty to be thankful for

I haven’t got

A great big yacht

To sail from shore to shore

Still I’ve got plenty to be thankful for

I’ve got plenty to be thankful for

No private car

No caviar

No carpet on my floor

Still I’ve got plenty to be thankful for

I’ve got eyes to see with

Ears to hear with

Arms to hug with

Lips to kiss with

Someone to adore

How could anybody ask for more?

My needs are small

I buy them all

At the five and ten cent store

Oh, I’ve got plenty to be thankful for

 

Yes.  I really, really do.
