    Lyrics

    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
    Had hair of red
    My father fell in love with her
    And soon the two 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 matters
    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
    That also made him the brother
    Of the widow's grown-up daughter
    Who, of course, was my step-mother

    I'm my own grandpa
    I'm my own grandpa
    It sounds funny I know
    But it really is so
    I'm my own grandpa

    My father's wife then had a son
    That kept them 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, she is my wife
    She's my grandmother too

    I'm my own grandpa
    I'm my own grandpa
    It sounds funny I know
    But it really is so
    I'm my own grandpa

    Now, if my wife is my grandmother
    Then, I am her grandchild
    And every time I think of it
    It nearly drives me wild

    For now I have become
    The strangest case you ever saw
    As the 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
    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
    I'm my own grandpa
