Each grandchild has discovered
Grandpa is a soft touch
With smiles and pleas they might ask
He checks to see how much

He is a big marshmallow
Not much can he refuse
When the person asking him
Stands in his grandchild's shoes

Innocent eyes look at him
With excitement and glee
Grandpa will you buy this thing
I know that you love me

So in his wallet he digs
And pulls out a few bills
Sweet faces steal all his love
Our budget he does kill
