The Lyrics

Part of the Granny trend...
Chorus:
I loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills
Loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills

Sometimes she doesn't know me, nor recognize my face
Early Alzheimer's- who knows? Or maybe she's just “spaced”
Hypochondria, takes pills with delight
Rx mess, disastrous, and it gives me a fright

Kid-lover turned pill-popper, Doctor is a quack- I know, she's a disaster
I loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills

I loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills
Loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills

Pack-rat and cat hoarder: it drives me so insane
But nothing compared to what's (happening) inside her brain
A Xanax here and there, psych meds at her age?
Scattered are numerous bottles, meds with dubious names

Kid-lover turned pill-popper, Doctor is a quack- I know, she's a disaster
I loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills

I loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills
Loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills

Neighbors find it funny, see her on the street
Actin' crazy in her bathrobe, callin' out names she oft repeats:

“Harry! Jimmy! Zeek!”

Doc and pharmaceuticals have gone too far
She's crazy as a loon, as happy as a lark!
Silly as a goose, but not as wise as an owl
I think she's got dementia, and farts odors that are foul

(Endangered Senior Citizen is what she is
Not the Gran I knew from yesterday and it's making our family frantic)

She's a disaster (disaster)

(She belongs in a sanitarium, or at least an Adult Community
Bad pills kept away, nurses watch the clock, and where Gran can get some peace)

Kid-lover turned pill-popper, Doctor is a quack- I know, she's a disaster
I loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills

I loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills
Loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills

I loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills
Loathe my Granny, I loathe my Granny 'cause she takes pills

(I loathe, I loathe my Granny) loathe my Granny (I loathe, I loathe my Granny)
… but she was ill
Note: Fictional, not about either of my deceased Grandmothers at all.

Granny takes pills because she's a depressed widow. She's depressed because, among other reasons, her kids and grandkids don't call. She has no purpose. Nobody to cook for. Get her a home aide. Taper her off the pills. Actually, Granny is at less risk than Gramps was because she is more likely to have a social support network of friends. Alzheimer's? Three of my friends, all male, went into oblivion, and they led clean lives. Support Alzheimer's research. Call your Granny.
