“Grandpa Bill” Written by Janice – 1975

Who’d ever believe it
When some years ago
The idea of grandkids
Wrought a vehement “No”

“Not a million I’d take
For the two kids I’ve got
One more for a nickel
I’ll pay you not!”

The lectures we heard
Of heartache and strife
“Go ahead you dumb turd,
And ruin your life

“What would he do
Without us we’d say
And “what will he do
When he grows old one day

No one to pass on to
His wisdom and wit
His legacy would die
And he’d say “Oh Bullshit”

“Get your beans clipped Goofy”
It is the only way
Kids just cost money
And you’ll rue the day

But thank God that we
Didn’t heed his advice
Along came these three
And to them he’s so nice

First there came “Lo”
(the grumbling still grows)
8 months pass till Kevie
The mans mellowing shows

Paper airplanes and windmills
And toys from his age
Birdhouses , Contraptions
And love fills each page

Of the Book memory writes
Of Grandpa’s demise
What would the boys do
Without each surprise?

And then three years later
Along came Melaine
Irish Pixie he dubbed her
And who would complain?

His role was written
Many eons ago
Our Grandpa is smitten
The “Gropps” run the show
