Holding Onto Grandpa’s Hand

What’s it like to have a grandpa…
To know from where you came…
He’ll teach you about your history…
Give you his family name…

He’ll teach you to seek cover…
When there’s a storm in the air…
He’ll help you understand…
That justice isn’t always fair…

He’ll show you how to stand…
With your feet firmly on the ground…
He’ll teach you to have courage…
When there’s trouble all around…

He knows about things…
That only a grandpa would know…
He comes from a world of experience…
As his deep wrinkles often show…

So whenever you have a chance…
To hold onto grandpa’s hand…
Hold onto it tightly…
Listen closely to the man…
