Roll on summer
I am going to join the bucket and spade brigade
because I have now a Granny been made
Come summer we can go to the beach
Making sandcastles, my grandkids I'll teach
What fun we shall have playing in the rock-pools
I can act like a child, breaking all the rules
I will show them shells in their tiny hands
They will bury me up to my neck in the sand
We will eat sandwiches made full of grit
And I will show them how to spit!
We will clamber over the stones and the rocks
There will be no need for time, nor any clocks
So long as there is sun, we will have a great time
And I'll have my Grandkids to myself - 'all mine!'
So I am happy to join the bucket and spade brigade
Because I have now, a Granny, been made!
