Describes some of the various remembrances of being with my grandma.

Story Behind the Song

I started the first verse as a silly poem, just goofing around. Then turned it into a song.

This is a GREAT song about a grandmother. The lyrics are fresh, original, engaging and cute as the little kid singing it. I love the specific word pictures that are child-friendly, super-believable and as real as gets, from wrinkles to kleenex to lickin's and prayer. Love that sweet emphasis at the end. This is a great song that has a LOT of potential.

MY GRANNY IS OLD

c. CHORUS
My Granny is old, my Granny is gray,
My Granny is wrinkled, but I like her that way.

1.
I help her with bakin' and we do some cookin',
She slips me a dollar when no one is lookin'.
We go out walkin' and we do some fishin'.
We sit by the fire and talk about wishin'.

CHORUS

2.
We celebrate Christmas and all holidays,
We bake and frost cookies in all kinds of ways.
We go to the mall and we do some shoppin'.
I think she'll get tired but she keeps right on hoppin'.

CHORUS

3.
She's always a-paintin; and always a-fixin',
And when I am bad she gives me a lickin'.
She brings me some candy and maybe a toy,
I tell you my Granny is my day of joy.

CHORUS

4.
She gets me a kleenex when I have to sneeze.
She helps everybody that she wants to please.
And when she is done with her work for the day,
She gets on her knees cause she wants to pray.

CHORUS

FINALE
My Granny's my Granny and
I like her that way.........
