Grandma Said

(Allie Wrubel / Herb Magidson)

Geraldo and his Orchestra

Grandma Said
As she tucked me into bed
There was once a princely fellow, with a lovely Cinderella
Long long ago, long ago

And Grandma Said
In a short time they were wed
In a world of joy and laughter, they lived happily ever after
Long long ago, long ago

Then, Grandma Said
That someday, this fairy tail would come true
She must have known that someday
I'd meet you

For here we are, and it's just as Grandma said
I'm a 20th century fella, your a modern Cinderella
So what to do, but to wed
Just as Grandma Said
