Who Will Take Care Of Grandma?
Who will take Grandma? Who will it be?
All of us want her, I'm sure you agree.
Let's call a meeting; let's gather the clan.
Let's get it settled as soon as we can,
In such a big family, I'm sure there is one
willing to give her a place in the sun.
Strange how we thought she'd never wear out,
but see how she walks, it's arthritis no doubt.
Her eyesight is faded, her memory is dim
She's apt to insist on the silliest whim.
When people get older, they become such a care.
She must have a home, but the question is...where?
Remember the days when she used to be spry?
Baked homemade cookies and made her own pies,
Helped us with lessons, and mended our seams;
Kissed away troubles and tendered our dreams.
Wonderful Grandma, we all love her so,
Isn't it dreadful she has no place to go?
One little corner is all she would need.
A shoulder to cry on, her Bible to read.
A chair by the window, with sun coming through;
Some pretty spring flowers, all covered with dew.
Who will warm her with love, so she won't mind the cold?
Oh who will take Grandma, now that's she's old?
What? Nobody wants her? Oh, yes, there is One
Willing to give her a place in the sun
Where she won't have to worry, or wonder, or doubt.
There'll be no more pain, arthritis,or gout.
Pretty soon now, God will give her a bed.
But who'll dry our tears, when Grandma is dead?
