Grandma's Tattoo

Written By: Kieran Roberts

Grandma’s Tattoo (Lyrics)

My Grandma got a new tattoo, strange thing to do at seventy-two
She’s always doing something new, maybe I should get one too
Grandma says she’s gonna visit me, says she’s got something I should see
Well that’s not my responsibility, I don’t know where that tattoo could be…

She’s my Grandma,…..she’s a one of a kind
I don’t have a clue, what she’s thinking sometimes….
And now she’s gone and got a tattoo….

Now I’m my Grandma’s only grandchild, we’ve got similar looks on my father’s side
She says I fill her up with pride, even more now since Grandpa died
Grandpa spent some time at war, he said grand-kids were worth fighting for
She said he’d chuckle now if he knew, she’d finally gone and got a tattoo

She’s my Grandma,…..she’s a one of a kind
I don’t have a clue, what she’s thinking sometimes….
And now she’s gone and got a tattoo….

Didn’t have time to run because, knock and the door and there she was
I don’t know how she moved so fast, I guess Grandma’s know that time don’t last
She made me sit down on the couch, ‘guess I was gonna have to tough it out
She rolled up her satin sleeve, and showed me her new tattoo

It was a picture of me,….gently staring out to sea
I think I was about thirteen, and she sighed,
And she said it gave her peace inside,…..
….to have me kind of close….
…and we smiled, and we cried…

I might get a tattoo too, I think that’s what I’m gonna do
‘cause ever since my Grandma died, I sure do miss her down deep inside
It’d be a nice way to remember her, and she’d approve, that’s for sure
My kid’s can ask me when they’re older, who’s that lady on your shoulder,…
…and I’ll tell them…

She’s my Grandma,…..she was one of a kind
And she would think the world of ya….
…and she even had a tattoo….
…and they say,…….cool!
