    Grandmother

    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
