about

I was inspired to write this song entitled "Grandmother" in 2012 when I was living in Los Angeles. I dedicate this one to my grandmother, Shirley Swanier Hines (12/25/32 - 5/23/14), and all the grandmothers that have gone to be with the Father, as well as the grandmothers who are still with us. I hope this song will help bring back whatever fond memories you may have of your own grandmother. Enjoy. ~ Champy #SpeakLife

Grandmother Lyrics:

Hook

Yeah, I had a dream about my grandmother
So I had to write I song for my grandmother
While I can still play it for her
And let her know that I'm right here praying for her
Yeah
I had a dream bout my grandmother
If I could sing I would sing to grandmother uh ....
Cause there will never be another
Nah just something bout ya grandmother yeah

Verse 1

Her maiden name Swanier / that's creole / now y'all can stop asking me, " How'd you get so yellow?" / Mississippi fellow, meet em , married a Hines / total of 8 children, her dog Toby made 9 /Uh, Houston Texas was on her mind / U-haul to Atlanta , Jawz still wit Divine/ arrived on the scene 1st memory Pharr Rd / then she moved on Glenwood next house Memorial / Fayetteville remember every Christmas we made it/ birthday same day as Christ at least when we celebrate it so/ it don't surprise me her presence is angelic / open her gifts last so all the grands can relish / in the moment , next moment we eating cheese, cake bout to leave kissing Grandma on the cheek/ get to the car, open card she's given me , 100 dollars wait ain't it yo birthday?

Hook

Verse 2

And I remember begging mama, mama hey mama can I please spend the night?/ cause boy her hot dogs and that ice cream was right/ and I remember sneaking in the frig for that swig of Sprite / then she'd catch me beautiful Lena Horn look-a-like / gorgeous woman/ Hollywood star strongest man by her side / she ain't never drove a car / never worked a real job/ my Papa wasn't having that/ she had 8 of his kids , you tell me where she working at?? ... But she did like to hit up the mall/ (South DeKalb ) every weekend her with daughters they balled/ (catch em there) hair done, nails did she's our queen / definition of dignity and it gleams/ after church we hit up that Krispy Kreme / back then she was Catholic, and then i was dipped Baptist, i guess now I'm a "Raptist" / Grandma I hope u like it I'm just returning the kiss... Muah
