Grandma's Wooden Spoon

verse one:

Now Gransma loved us kids, but she believed in discipline

if she said no more than once, your ice was gettin' thin

enough's enough, if she left in a huff, you better clear the room

cause when she got back you'd get a whack from Grandma's wooden spoon.

verse two:

Cousin Billy scared sister Sally with a frog from the river

Grandma never said a word but her chin began to quiver.

Billy said he wasn't scared, but he soon changed his tune

It was yellow he showed runnin' down the road from Grandma's wooden spoon

Chorus:

Granma had a wooden spoon, let me tell y'all about it

it never touched no gravy, no it never tossed a salad.

if anyone got outa line it would surely spell their doom.

burnin' up the bottom with Grandma's wooden spoon.

verse three:

Suppertime was 5 o'clock and you better not be late

I was seen at 5 :15 comin' thru the front yard gate

I thought I'd get a scolden maybe  sent off to my room

She didn't hesitate I got a taste of Grandma's wooden spoon.

Chorus:

Granma had a wooden spoon, let me tell y'all about it

it never touched no gravy no it never tossed a salad.

if anyone got outa line it would surely spell their doom.

burnin' up the bottom with Grandma's wooden spoon.

verse four:

When Grandma passed away she left her spoon to me.

and the fun's begun I have a son, Lord he'd just like me.

he never wants to listen but he should be learning soon

don't talk back or get a whack from Grandma's wooden spoon.

the end.

Funny poem. Oh the beauty of scarred memories. To paraphrase Jimi Hendrix - 'Hey Joe, where you going with that wooden spoon in your hand'

Grandma Irene was 4 foot 11 inches and 135 pounds of pure piss and vinegar. She had hazel eyes. I enjoyed every minute I ever spent with her and remember ass whippin' with love.
