Mmm, ooh
Grandma's hands
(Grandma's hands)

Grandma's hands
Clapped in church each Sunday mornin'
Grandma's hands
Played the tambourine so well
(So well)
Grandma's hands
Used to issue vital warnings

She'd say, Joey, don't you run so fast
(Joey, don't you run so fast)
Might fall on a piece of glass
(Oh, my, my)
Might be snakes there in that grass
(Oh, yea)

Grandma's hands
(Grandma's hands)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Grandma's hands
(Grandma's hands)

Grandma's hands
Soothed the locals and their mothers
(Shaa, doop)
Grandma's hands

Used to ache sometimes and swell
(Shaa, doop)
Grandma's hands
Used to lift her face and tell her

She'd say, baby, grandma understands
(Oh, mama)
That you really love that man
Put yourself in Jesus's hands

Grandma's hands
(Grandma hands)
Grandma's hands
(Grandma's ha, ha, ha, hands)

Grandma's hands
(Grandma's hands)
Grandma's hands
(Grandma's ha-hands)

Grandma's hands
(Grandma's hands)
Used to hand me a piece of candy
Grandma's hands

Picked me up each time I fell
(Baa doop)
Grandma's hands
Boy, they really come in handy

She'd say, Millie, don't you whip that boy
What you wanna spank him for
(What you wanna spank him for)
Didn't drop no apple core
But I don't have Grandma's hands no more

And when I get to heaven
If I get to heaven
I'll look for Grandma's hands
(Grandma's hands)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh, yeah, yeah
Grandma's hands
