NEVER HIT YOUR GRANDMA WITH A SHOVEL (Felix Hanemann) Spike Jones & his City Slickers - 1942 (Vocal: The Boys in the Back Room) Oooh! Never hit your Grandma with a shovel It makes a bad impression on her mind (On her mind) In a better way impart All the love things in your heart For it's possible she may retort in kind (Retort in kind) Remember Granny's known you since a baby And even though in fun, could prove a shock (Prove a shock) So respect her aged head, Stay the shovel and instead Paste your dear old, sweet old Grandma With a rock. A Grandma, with her grandchild, Sat by the kitchen door Of a quaint old fashioned house built long ago The little lass grew restless As on the evening wore For she felt the time was fleeting very slow "I must do something" cried the girl, And seized the nearby spade But a passing stranger blocked her swing Whilst these wise words he said Oh! Never hit your Grandma with a shovel It makes a bad impression on her mind In a better way impart All the love things in your heart For it's possible she may retort in kind Remember Granny's known you since a baby And even though in fun, could prove a shock (Prove a shock) So respect her aged head, Stay the shovel and instead Paste your dear old, sweet old Grandma With a rock. (A great big rock) (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - October 2005)
