Eddie Fisher Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Oh, my Pa-pa, to me he was so wonderful
Oh, my Pa-pa, to me he was so good
No one could be so gentle and so lovable
Oh, my Pa-pa, he always understood

Gone are the days when he could take me on his knee
And with a smile he'd change my tears to laughter
Oh, my Pa-pa, so funny, so adorable
Always the clown, so funny in his ways
Oh, my Pa-pa, to me he was so wonderful
Deep in my heart I miss him so today

Gone are the days when he could take me on his knee
And with a smile he'd change my tears to laughter

Oh, my Pa-pa, to me he was so wonderful
Deep in my heart I miss him so today





Oh, my Pa-pa
Oh, my Pa-pa

F is for Family has to be the most real animated show I've ever seen. It just always finds a way to hook me and wait for another season by capturing true moments in life that many shows don't.

At least you finally found it in your heart to own up to everything and make things right with your family even if it was just for a short talk. Now, we have to look for someone else who can sell ice to Eskimos.

And to Frank, "attaboy".

Now it's time to wait for another season. It'll be worth it.
