  • I've been sitting here all day thinking
    Same old thing ten years away thinking
    Now my days are gone, memories linger on
    Thoughts of when I was boy

    Pennyfarthings on the street riding
    Motorcars were funny things, frightning
    Bow and hoops and spinning tops
    Annie gretzel's lollipops
    Comic cuts, all different things

    Grandad, grandad you're lovely
    That's what we all think of you
    Grandad, grandad you're lovely
    That's what we all think of you
    Grandad, grandad

    Aeroplanes tied up with string flying
    Telephones and talking things sighing
    A radio and phonograph, Charlie Chaplin made us laugh
    Silently falling about

    Familiar things I keep around, near me
    Memories of my younger days, clearly
    Now it's in my mind
    Everyday I find, thoughts of when I was boy

    Grandad, grandad you're lovely
    That's what we all think of you
    Grandad, grandad you're lovely
    That's what we all think of you
    Grandad, grandad

    Grandad, grandad
