"Grandma, tell me of my mamma," said a lad with eyes of blue;
"Did she kiss me, call me Darling '-did she grandma, just like you? "
Mamma died when you were born, dear, papa he was drowned at sea;
You were just a wee, wee baby when she left you, dear, to me.
I'll take care of you grandma, you are my sweetheart true;
I'll be good to you, grandma, do all I can for you;
We'll go walking together, rest 'neath the old oak tree;
I'll lake cure of you, grandma, you're all in the world to me.
"When I'm big I'll be a rich man, build a mansion grand and new;
You shall ride in a fine carriage, and have servants wait on you."
You are grandma's blue-eyed baby, oh, the happy times we've had,
But I'm growing old and feeble, soon I'll leave you, little lad.- Refrain.
"Grandma, when you're tired and weary, I will help you all I can;
All wee boys are good for something-grandma, soon I'll he a man."
All my friends have gone before me, you're my bonnie blue-eyed boy,
Kiss me, darling- up in heaven mamma hears her little boy:-Refrain.
