We celebrate Thanksgiving with a high-spirited recording by Cab Calloway and His Orchestra from the mid-1940s, “Everybody Eats When They Come To My House.” The song was written by Jeanne Burns and finds Calloway inviting several friends over to sample various foods. Such lines as “Pass me a pancake, Mandrake,” and “Pasta fazool, Talulah,” reveal a certain level of ingeniousness behind the silly surface playfulness.
