Artist/Band: Gladys Knight
Lyrics for Song: Grandma's Hands
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs - Gladys Knight



Baby don't you run so fast

(She was always giving us a warning)

Might be snakes there in that grass

(She was looking out,)

Grandma's Hands

(I remember them well.)



Grandma's hands

Clapped in church on Sunday morning

Grandma's hands Played the tambourine so well

Grandma's hands Used to issue out a warning

She'd say "Gladys don't you run so fast!

Might fall on a piece of glass!

Might be snakes there in that grass!"

Grandma's hands



Grandma's hands Soothed a local unwed mother

Grandma's hands Used to ache sometimes and swell

Grandma's hands Used to lift her face and tell her

She'd say "Baby, Grandma understands.

That you really love that man.

Put yourself in Jesus' hands."

Grandma's hands



Couldn't wait till Sunday morning (oh baby don't you run so fast)

Cooking up that fried chicken,

Smelling up the whole house



"Gladys don't you run so fast!

Might fall on a piece of glass!

Might be snakes there in that grass!"

Grandma's hands



Ain't nothing like grandma's hands



Family is a gift of god,

With this song I'd like to pay harness

To one of it's members

Over the years her importance has been diminished

Her image tarnished, but to me she'll always be a rare jewel

I've heard her called by many loving nicknames

Nana, Mimi, Mamaw, Big Mama, Poppi

But unlike millions of others, I simply call her Grandma



Ain't nothing like grandma's hands



Let me tell you this



Grandma's hands Used to hand me piece of candy

Grandma's hands Picked me up each time I fell

Grandma's hands Boy, they really came in handy

She'd say "Baby, don't you whip that boy !

What you want to spank him for?

He didn't drop no apple core !"

But I don't have Grandma anymore

If I get to heaven I'll look for,Grandma's Hands



Ain't nothing like grandma's hands

Used to hand me some candy

Grandma's hands Picked me up each time I fell

Grandma's hands Boy, they really came in handy

She'd say "Baby, don't you whip that boy!

What you want to whip him for?

He didn't drop no apple core!"



Grandma's Hands (x2)
