The Thankfulness Song [Veggie Tales] – Jeremy Morada

Today’s song is The Thankfulness Song from the Veggie Tales story of Madame Blueberry. I admit freely I love the Veggie Tales cartoons. They are funny and sweet, enjoyable for all ages, and always combine interesting characters and catchy music to illustrate a moral tale with a gentle biblical theme. Madame Blueberry lives in a comfy little tree-house in the woods. She is content and happy with her life until one day a “Stuff Mart” is built up the road. Madame Blueberry is lured by the promise of “free stuff” (purchased on credit) that is guaranteed to make her “much happier”. Soon she becomes discontent with her life and consumed with buying more and more stuff in a quest to find more and more happiness. Ironically, the more “stuff” she accumulates, the more unhappy she becomes. Unfortunately, one day her little home gets so filled with stuff it collapses and in a dramatic moment she loses everything! As she sits in the park crying she meets a homeless family who has very little stuff, but are truly content and happy. They share their last piece of apple pie with Madame Blueberry, and teach her the simple but profound lesson that “A thankful heart is a happy heart”.

The Thankfulness Song by Veggie Tales Lyrics

I thank God for this day
For some time to play outside
For the birds in the trees
For His love that’s deep and wide

For the air that I breath
For my friends and family
That’s why I say thanks every day

Because a thankful heart is a happy heart!
I’m glad for what I have, that’s an easy way to start!
For the love that He shares as He listens to my prayers
That’s why I say thanks everyday!

I thank God for this night for the stars in the sky
For the hug from my mom for my special lullaby
For the chance for some rest
For the wings that I am blessed
That’s why we say thanks everyday

Because a thankful heart is a happy heart!
I’m glad for what I have, that’s an easy way to start!
For the love that He shares as He listens to my prayers
That’s why we say thanks everyday!
That’s why we say thanks everyday!
