Who thinks that we are too severe?
            His Grandpa...
Who takes him walking down the street,
And shows him off to all they meet,
And buys him stuff he shouldn't eat?
            His Grandpa...
Who slips him candy on the sly?
            His Grandpa.
Who scoffs at every law we make
To save him from the tummy ache,
And fills him full of chocolate cake?
            His Grandpa...

Asking God to keep you free
From all life's ills and sorrows—
And to let you think of me.
