Silent Tree Music - Song Lyrics
( Grandma / grandmother song lyrics )
GRANDMA, ( YOU WANT TO ) WATCH ME PLAY?
Copyright © 2009 - MickTerry.com
On YouTube, performed LIVE by MICK TERRY (soon!)
She's got her own life. She's a loving wife,
retired from a long career.
But she drops it all when she gets that call
'cause she always loves to hear:
"GRANDMA, YOU WANT TO WATCH ME PLAY?
GRANDMA, YOU WANT TO help me do my homework?
GRANDMA, won't you please, please stay?
GRANDMA, you're okay by me."
Her two- grandsons are a load of fun
besides being cute and smart.
With three tons of toys they can make some noise,
playing battle and dinosaurs.
Legos, Play-Doh, let's take a hike.
Lunch time, nap time, let's ride our bikes.
In their fort in the tree, they will hear her read,
then inside to play the Wii.
When she's fin'lly home with her husband alone,
all she wants to do is sleep, dreaming of ...
[spoken] "Grandma, you can chase me around the house, if you like!
Hide & seek? Freeze tag? Are we there yet? When's lunch?
How long will it take?"
