GRANDPA CAN'T FLY HIS KITE (Clarence Carter / Pat Cooley) Clarence Carter - 1987 I went down to the bar to have myself a drink 'Cause Grandpa had given me some news and I had to think The bartender said "Have a drink of gin, 'cause drinkin' gin ain't no sin" But I told the bartender that drinkin' gin won't let your nature bend Grandpa can't fly his kite 'Cause Grandma won't give it no tail, no So you see, I've got to use what Mother Nature gave me Before Father Time takes it away, yeah The mother rabbit told the father rabbit She said "Sex ain't nothin' but a habit" The father rabbit told the mother rabbit "Well, baby, shoot the habit to me rabbit" The male bee makes love to the queen bee Until she cries He knows when he finishes makin' love to her He's surely gonna die. But you see, Grandpa can't fly his kite 'Cause Grandma won't give it no tail, no So I'm gonna use what Mother Nature gave me Before Father Time takes it away, yeah I told you, I got sixteen inches And it's four inches thick And the first day I don't need love I'll take gravely sick I feel sorry for Grandpa Because I know what he wants to do And that's how come I came over to your house Because I got to make love to you You see, Grandpa can't fly his kite 'Cause Grandma won't give no tail, no, shake it So I got to use what Mother Nature gave me Before Father Time takes it away, yeah (Instrumental Break) I went to see my doctor, just the other day He said, "Clar, you won't last too long if you don't slow down the pace" I said, "Listen, doctor, good lovin' ain't no sin But if that good stuff kill me, then let me go with the breeze" Grandpa can't fly his kite 'Cause Grandma won't give no tail, no So I got to use what Mother Nature gave me Before Father Time takes it away, yeah One more ... Grandpa and Grandma were layin' in the bed And Grandpa turned over, and this is what he said. He said, "Wake up Grandma, don't sleep so damned sly 'Cause that ain't what you promised when we first laid down" Grandpa can't fly his kite 'Cause Grandma won't give no tail, yeah, yeah,yeah So I got to use what Mother Nature gave me Before Father Time takes it away, yeah (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen & Mel Priddle - July 2005)
