Grandsons

    Wish I could watch them jumping ’round,
    Calling names
    Kicking cans, n’playing tag,
    Hidin’ every place
    Wish I could see them now,
    And even join their games
    How different life would be…
    …But I got no time
    For silly chitter chatter.
    I’m on my way
    ‘Cause while my blood’s still warm
    And I’m not getting better,
    Time’s passing away,
    ‘Cause I’ve got a thing about
    Seein’ my grandson grow old.
    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    Wish I could buy them toys,
    Rubber balls and trains
    Watch an see how tall they grow,
    Bigger day by day
    Oh, I want nothing more than to see them
    Laugh and play
    Life would be so different then,
    …But I got no time
    For silly chitter chatter.
    I’m on my way,
    ‘Cause while my blood’s still warm
    And my mind doesn’t matter,
    I’m going to pray,
    Because I’ve got a thing about
    Seeing’ my Grandson grow old.
    …But we got no time
    For silly chitter chatter.
    I’m on my way,
    ‘Cause while my blood’s still warm
    And my mind doesn’t matter,
    I’m hoping to stay,
    Because I’ve got a thing about
    Seeing’ my Grandson grow old.
