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 tookwithout asingle sneeze
A double pinch of snuff

And I went walking down 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 sing this to my dad when he was little.

different beginning? NEW

Hi,

My father learned this from his mother, I think, in the early 1900s. I'm so glad you posted it!

The beginning of the song, as I remember it, was slightly different. It began, "Last night when I was fast asleep, what fun it was for me. I dreamed that..."

S.B.
