I'M MY OWN GRANDPA** (Moe Jaffe / Dwight Latham) Lonzo & Oscar with The Winston County Pea Pickers - 1948 Guy Lombardo & His Royal Canadians (vocal: Don Rodney) - 1948 Jo Stafford - 1948 Steve Goodman - 1973 Bob Pickering - 1973 Ray Stevens - 1987 David Grisman - 1988 The Muppet Babies - 1994 RFD Boys - 1995 Chet Atkins - 1995 Also recorded by: Eight to the Bar; Hardrock Gunter; Homer & Jethro; Grandpa Jones; Hardrock Gunter; Tony Pastor & The Clooney Sisters; Ralph's World. **Title is sometimes spelled "I'm My Own Grandpaw" Jo Stafford's version titled "I'm My Own Grandmaw" It sounds funny, I know, But it really is so, Oh, I'm my own grandpa. I'm my own grandpa. I'm my own grandpa. It sounds funny, I know, But it really is so, Oh, I'm my own grandpa. Now many, many years ago, when I was twenty-three, I was married to a widow who was pretty as could be. This widow had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red. My father fell in love with her, and soon they, too, were wed. This made my dad my son-in-law and changed my very life, My daughter was my mother, cause she was my father's wife. To complicate the matter, even though it brought me joy, I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy. My little baby then became a brother-in-law to Dad, And so became my uncle, though it made me very sad. For if he was my uncle, then that also made him brother Of the widow's grown-up daughter, who, of course, was my stepmother. Father's wife then had a son who kept him on the run, And he became my grandchild, for he was my daughter's son. My wife is now my mother's mother, and it makes me blue, Because, although she is my wife, she's my grandmother, too. Now if my wife is my grandmother, then I'm her grandchild, And everytime I think of it, it nearly drives me wild, For now I have become the strangest case you ever saw As husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa! I'm my own grandpa. I'm my own grandpa. It sounds funny, I know, but it really is so, Oh, I'm my own grandpa.
