Spike Jones – Never Hit Your Grandma With A Shovel Lyrics

Oooh! Never hit your Grandma with a shovel

It makes a bad impression on her mind

(On her mind)

In a better way impart

All the love things in your heart

For it’s possible she may retort in kind

(Retort in kind)

Remember Granny’s known you since a baby

And even though in fun, could prove a shock

(Prove a shock)

So respect her aged head,

Stay the shovel and instead

Paste your dear old, sweet old Grandma

With a rock.

A Grandma, with her grandchild,

Sat by the kitchen door

Of a quaint old fashioned house built long ago

The little lass grew restless

As on the evening wore

“I must do something” cried the girl,

And seized the nearby spade

But a passing stranger blocked her swing

Whilst these wise words he said

Oh! Never hit your Grandma with a shovel

It makes a bad impression on her mind

In a better way impart

All the love things in your heart

For it’s possible she may retort in kind

Remember Granny’s known you since a baby

And even though in fun, could prove a shock

(Prove a shock)

So respect her aged head,

Stay the shovel and instead

Paste your dear old, sweet old Grandma

With a rock.

(A great big rock)
