Grandmother

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Lovingly

1. You give me a kiss.

You give me a hug.

You smile when you see me too.

I wish ev’ry child in the whole wide world

Had a grandmother* just like you.

2. You read me a book.

You sing me a song.

You whisper you love me too.

I wish ev’ry child in the whole wide world

Had a grandmother* just like you.

3. I’ll try to be good;

I’ll do as I should.

I’ll whisper, “I love you too.”

I wish ev’ry child in the whole wide world

Had a grandmother* just like you.

*Alternate word: grandfather
