“U Can’t Stuff This”

Here, in the U.S., we are celebrating Thanksgiving today. It’s a holiday for being with family and being grateful for all of the good things in our lives. One thing we are always thankful for at ESL Podcast is our fantastic listeners.

I thought you might like another song for Thanksgiving (also see this and this). This is a version of the very popular 1990 hit song by MC Hammer called “U Can’t Touch This.”

This version is called “U Can’t Stuff This.” Traditionally, before turkeys are cooked, people put stuffing, a mixture of bread, seasonings, vegetables, and other things inside of the turkey to enhance (improve) the taste.  If I were a turkey, I probably wouldn’t want to get stuffed, either.

I hope you enjoy this, and if you’re reading and listening from the U.S., have a happy Thanksgiving!

U Can’t Stuff This

Can’t stuff this
You can’t stuff this
Can’t stuff this

My, my, my, my ladies think I’m so hot (attractive)
Makes me think it’s time to trot (to walk at a fast pace, like a horse)
And strut (walk in a way to get noticed) around the farm (area of land used for growing crops and raising animals)
This hayseed (seed from hay, a type of dried grass that horses eat) here can’t do me no harm

Feels good when you know you’re down (informal for being in agreement with something)
A super tom (male) turkey you can’t sell by the pound
And I’m known, as such (in this way)
And this is one turkey you can’t stuff

You can’t stuff this
I told you farm boy
You can’t stuff this
Yeah, I keep on living, you know
You can’t stuff this
Put down the roasting pan (large pan with a cover used for cooking)
Break it down!

Stop!  Turkey time.
I’m fresh and I’m juicy
You, like that, coming here with a recipe (cooking instructions)
So move, out of my face
And get a big meal some other place

For Thanksgiving, hold on
I’m plump (fat; with a round shape) but I’m fit (physically healthy)
And I know what’s going on
Like that, like that
Baby, I’m a free-range (animals raised in natural environments) Cadillac (brand of expensive American cars)

So you know, you want too much
And this is a turkey you can’t stuff
Put down the seasoning (salt, herbs, and spices put on food to make is taste better)
You can’t stuff this
Get your hands off my giblets (the liver, heart, gizzard, and neck of a chicken, usually removed before cooking)

You can’t stuff this
Want a piece of me (want to fight), sucker (jerk)?
Can’t stuff this

    Wow, so funny, so exciting, thank you, Lucy for buffing up my woebegone evening. :D

    ESL is getting better every day, no one can question it I’m sure.

    Keep growing bigger, cooler and much more cognitive and interesting, you all who is involved in this project.

    We love you, have a nice weekend and an unforgettable Thanksgiving!

    Hey guys,

    Besides ESLPod. I love regularly visiting the site of NASA and ESA because I like space stuff.

    So, ESL + space I am having this astronomical thinking about Lucy.

    I thought of her like being the Moon since she reflects on us her knowledge like the Moon reflects the Sun’s rays.

    She is mysterious like the Moon is.

    And as the Moon moves the tides she moves our feelings and thoughts.

    Jeff could be like Jupiter this big and powerful presence in our solar system.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    Hi everyone,

    I just wanted to say I am feeling little grumpy because of this game I am playing out that
    I found on Windows marketplace called Pinball FX2 wich is really good and well done.

    There is this table called Mars and I added to that onother one called The Fantastic Four.
    I must say they are really well done and addictive.
    They make me swear a lot.
    Sometimes the ball goes out too quikly that gets on my nerves.

    See now that I am writing it down it is going away. IT works.

    My personal record is 122.000.000. that was a game that lasted half an hour. that was satisfyng.

    The only problem is that i can’t stay seated too longher because I fell like an idiot from one of those ladder that one in place
    one has to secure them with some kind of scrue at the top of it.
    I forgot to do that and when I was on top of the ladder it was too late.. it opened out so quikly.

    I was not paying attention at what I was doing and I was listening to NPR with headphones.

    Bye.

    Thanksgiving Day is for Giving “Thanks”.

    Every day is a Thanksgiving Day.

    I love Giving Thanks because I think it is very important to express my thankfulness.

    But, what will the Turkeys in the farm say?

    They say: “No, Thank You”. :)

    Dear Jeff, Lucy, Warren and everyone in the ESLPOD.com website (Teachers and Learners/blog writers equally important)

    Yes, Thank you very much indeed for helping me and lots of people in this world to improve everyone’s English.

    You all have brought the whole world into a much higher level of English Language Land.

    *** A Big Thank You***, from the bottom of my heart.

    Sorry, no Turkeys but warm wishes to wish you all the best forever and ever.

    Betty :)

    Hi Elvis

    Thank you for having confidence in me. I have the same problem with vocabulary and your question has prompted me into taking this matter more serious.

    I am writing an answer to your question. It is not finished yet.

    I think it is better I let you know here that I am putting my thought and some suggestions online on paper, and I will certainly discuss about the matter with you later here.

    Please bear with me. I will post my comment here about the matter as soon as possible.

    Have a good weekend.
