Friday With Grandpa I’m My Own Grandpa

I Really Am My Own Grandpa

This brings back lots of memories. I remember my Dad playing this song with one of his old 8-track tapes. For you youngsters, 8-track tapes were before cassettes, which were before CDs, which were before iPods. Now if you followed that reverse logic, try following the logic in this video.

OH, you may have to pause the Hot Daddy Video and then play the Grandpa Video.

**Title is sometimes spelled "I'm My Own Grandpaw"Jo Stafford's version titled "I'm My Own Grandmaw"

It sounds funny, I know,But it really is so,Oh, I'm my own grandpa.

I'm my own grandpa.I'm my own grandpa.It sounds funny, I know,But it really is so,Oh, I'm my own grandpa.

Now many, many years ago, when I was twenty-three,I was married to a widow who was pretty as could be.This widow had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red.My father fell in love with her, and soon they, too, were wed.

This made my dad my son-in-law and changed my very life,My daughter was my mother, cause she was my father's wife.To complicate the matter, even though it brought me joy,I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy.

My little baby then became a brother-in-law to Dad,And so became my uncle, though it made me very sad.For if he was my uncle, then that also made him brotherOf the widow's grown-up daughter,                            who, of course, was my stepmother.

Father's wife then had a son who kept him on the run,And he became my grandchild, for he was my daughter's son.My wife is now my mother's mother, and it makes me blue,Because, although she is my wife, she's my grandmother, too.

Now if my wife is my grandmother, then I'm her grandchild,And every time I think of it, it nearly drives me wild,For now I have become the strangest case you ever sawAs husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa!

I'm my own grandpa.I'm my own grandpa.It sounds funny, I know, but it really is so,Oh, I'm my own grandpa.
