The Lyrics

What a gran, what a gran, what a gran
What a mighty good gran (you gotta say it again now)
What a gran, what a gran, what a gran
What a mighty good gran (yeah, she's a mighty mighty good gran)
What a gran, what a gran, what a gran
What a mighty good gran (yes she is, ah)
What a gran, what a gran, what a gran
What a mighty good gran (oh uh yeah)

I wanna take a minute or two
And give much respect to
The lovely gran that's made a difference in my world
And although most gran's just doze
Her throws and eiderdowns go
'Cause I never heard about her blanket getting unfurled
But I don't sweat it, because it's just pathetic
To let it, get me involved in that he said what? she said what? crowd
I know that ain't nobody perfect
I give pear drops to those who deserve it
And believe me yall she's worth it
So here's to the future
'Cause she can't remember the past
I finally found somebody that could run my bath
(ha ha ha) You're so crazy, but a truly lovely lady

(chorus)

My gran is smooth like Werthers and her voice is quite high
A face with lots of wrinkles with a squinty eye
She's smart like a doctor but got an achey back
And when she comes home, she'll relax with a snack
She always got a gift for me everytime I see her
A lotta snot nose oldies couldn't be her
She never missed a birthday card once to me yet
So I give her presents that she'll quickly forget
She keeps me on cloud nine just with her cookin
She's not bothered even if I'm funny lookin'
She dresses like the other grans, but even in jeans
She's a god sent original the gran of my dreams
Yes my gran says she loves me, never says she loves me not
Tryin' a rush me pud and put custard in the right spot
See other grans that I've seen they tried to make all their macs fit
But every time they tried I said, you gotta undo the zip
But not this gran, she's got the right potion
Vics vapour-rub me chest and make me use camomile lotion
Yeah the ritual, highway to Streatham
From seven to seven she's got me going down to seven eleven
And yes it's me that she's always choosing
With her I'm never loosin' and she knows that my name is not Susan.. er David.. er Simon..
She always takes a while to bring my name to mind
Which doesn't bother me cause good grans are hard to find

(chorus)

Ooh, I said what a mighty, good gran
She's a mighty, mighty good gran
Now check her out

My gran knits good jumpers so sometimes I call her wooly
She's not a frying pan wielding gran, not a bully
She takes her time and does everything right
Tucks me safely up in bed, then she turns off the light
She's a real smooth Nana never in a rush
And she covers up my pimples with concealer on a brush
Spends quality time with her grandkids when she can
Secure in her granhood 'cause she's a real gran
With a handbag she's a fighter and she'll knock another out
Don't take her for a sucker 'cause that's not what she's about
Everytime I need her she's always got a snack
But never is she wasteful 'cause her mama taught her that

I've got a good gran (What a gran, what a gran, what a gran,what a mighty good gran)
Yes she is (What a gran, what a gran, what a gran, what a mighty good gran)
What a mighty good gran
She's a mighty, mighty good gran
What a mighty, mighty good gran
Yeah!
Hoo!
A break it down, break it down, one time
Good God

Anyone who pays tribute to their grandmother is okay with me; and your writing is good.
