GRANDPA GRUMPS
by
John G. Sutton

I've just become a grandfather
My daughter give birth to a lad
And suddenly all of me moaning
Has stopped, 'cos now I'm just glad
I used to think days were real hard like
All workin' and plodding away
Just filling in time till me passing
But now, well I'm plannin' to stay
Wife says as I've getten' a smirk on
I'm laughing and chuckling at kid
Watchin' him yelling and skriking
Just like his mother once did
Now I see that this life's got a purpose
And all of them trials, hurts and bumps
Have turned into lessons I learned from
On the road to Grandpa Grumps
And though I might be an old codger
Grey hair, baldy patch and fat tum
For one little chap I'm still perfect
And that fellow is my grandson
You see it's all down to perception
He sees not the signs of old age
But a person that offers affection
His very own jolly plump sage
I tell him tall tales of brave exploits
Read nursery rhymes and sing songs
He sits on my knee and starts laughing
And never a day is too long
Dear God let this boy live in freedom
Do not let his innocence spoil
As he faces this world and its troubles
May he find peace of mind, not just toil
Then one day when my song is a memory
And he's travelled and wearing life's lumps
God grant him a grandchild to cuddle
Then he too will be Grandpa Grumps.
