The Lyrics

This silly song is dedicated to my brother Roger Arndt who back in 1975 came up with the first part of this parody of the old Marvel animated "Spiderman" theme song while we were stuck in Middletown, Pa. after the death of our father. My brother was just 8 years old when he got annoyed with our Paternal Grandmother Bessie- that's right,Grandma Bessie! She hounded us like crazy, so one night my little brother mocked her in song with this partial parody that I just completed!!! He was gonna get beat, but fortunately my mom did not get along with her Mother-in-Law and we defied her the entire visit!!! For some strange reason she was opposed to us kids drinking Pepsi Cola, so we went out of our way to buy it locally. My brother drew a cartoon of our Grandma dying in her bed with a Pepsi IV attached to her arm- for that, he ALMOST got beat!
Grandma Man, Grandma Man,
Does whatever your Grandma can
Starts to yell, picks a fight
Tells you to go to bed at night!
Look out! Here comes the Grandma Man!

Is he strong? Got a broom-
Forever nagging to "clean your room"
Oh yes, that means under the bed too,
He knows just what's best for you!
Hey there! There goes Grandma Man!

At the break of dawn,
Gotta get to your chores right away,
And stop drinking all that soda,
Pepsi Cola's gonna give you a cavity!

Grandma Man, Grandma Man,
Does whatever your Grandma can
Birthdays? Never ignored—
A great big hug is his reward.

To him,
Parents just aren't tough enough—
The younger generation needs to wake-up,
Here comes the Grandma Man!
Although written in 1975 this silly song is timeless!

This was half-written in 1975 when I was 11 and my brother was just 8. He thought up the character when we were collecting those 7-11 Marvel hero cups!!!

Your first posted collaboration. I've had songs float around in my head for years until I finally found a place to dump/post them. IV bottle with Pepsi, that was a clever idea for an eight year old.

I have dedicated songs for my dad "AMX" and my mother (sad "They Put Her in a Zoo") as well as this dedicated to my brother who is now 44 yrs old and one to my sister's dog "The Einy-Tiny Song"!!! I just have to cover my other brother Stephen and my German Shepherd Sheeba. Yes, I wish I had that cartoon from 1975 with the Pepsi IV too. I cartooned in HS and still have a few that I made for my sister...

I don't think my relatives want their names connected with one of my songs.
