Grandpapa

Such fun it was for me:
1 dreamed that I was Grandpapa,
And Grandpapa was me.
And Grandpapa was me,
And Grandpapa was me;
I dreamed that I was Grandpapa
And Grandpapa was me.

I dreamed I wore a powdered wig,
Drab pants and gaiters buff,
And took without a single sneeze a
double pinch of snuff.
A double pinch of snuff,
A double pinch of snuff,
And took without asingle sneeze
A double pinch of snuff

And I wentwalkingdown the street,
And he ran by my side.
Because I walked too fast for him.
The little fellow cried.
The little fellow cried,
The little fellow cried;
Because I walked too fast for

The little fellow cried.
The little fellow cried,
The little fellow cried;
Because I walked too fast for
him,
The littlc fellow cried.
And after tea I washed his face,
And when his prayers were said,
I blew candle out and left
poor grandpapa in bed.


My great grandma used to sign this to my dad when he was little

"Grandpapa" children's lullaby NEW
by: Anonymous

My grandfather used to sing this to me. I have always been curious about it's origin and age. Judging by the lyrics it could be mid 1700 to 1800 hundreds. Does anyone know anything about this song?
