Grampa's Advice
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Two women in my life
One of them got to be my wife
Two women in my life
One of them got to be my wife
Betty love me but I love Myra
Gone to explain to grandpapa
"What should I do, who should I wed?"
Grampa watched me and then he said:

"The one who you love
Never marry to she
Is the one who love you
She go make you happy
Keep the one that you love
On the side all the while
But the one who love you
Take her straight down the aisle"

"Grandpapa, you making fun
That is easier said than done
How I go leave my sweetheart on top the shelf
Up and marry somebody else?"
"All you young boys ain't got no sense
I telling you from experience
A woman must love you more than you love she
Before you jump in matrimony"

"The one who you love
Never marry to she
Is the one who love you
She go make you happy
Keep the one that you love
On the side all the while
But the one who love you
Take her straight down the aisle"

"She pretty and nice and fat
But you can't marry she just for that
Nine times out of ten is true
The one you love not in love with you
So when you have a sure thing
That is where you must put your ring
If you go get married you got to be smart
Boy use your head and not your heart"

"The one who you love
Never marry to she
Is the one who love you
She go make you happy
Keep the one that you love
On the side all the while
And the one who love you
Take her straight down the aisle"

I didn't listen what mrh grampa say
That is why I suffering so today
Myra cheat me until I blind
Seven children and none ain't mine
Every time I open me mouth
She and she mumma put me out
Now I believe what meh grandpapa said
I can't forget it until I dead

"The one who you love
Never marry to she
Is the one who love you
She go make you happy
Keep the one that you love
On the shelf all the while
But the one who love you
Take her straight down the aisle"

I was a little girl listening to Sparrow on the radio in the 60s. He's still going strong. An absolute legend.
