Granddad

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 GRANDDAD

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 My Granddad is a weird old man,
he calls me Harry Kane —
every time I visit
he calls me by that name.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I thought you were a footballer,
I thought you were a 9…
“Please listen, I am 6,” I said,
“and I’m Isaac all the time.”

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Now Kane’s a 10 for Tottenham,
he’s never been a 6 —
so come on Harry, tell the truth
and no more of your tricks.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 “Oh! Granddad! Please behave yourself,
you really are a pain!
Why do you have to tease so much
and call me Harry Kane?”

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 “But I saw you at WEM-BER-LEE!
You were leading out the team;
we know that Harry does that job…
Perhaps it was a dream?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 “Yes it’s true I went to Wembley
dressed in my England kit,
but if you think I’m Harry Kane
you must be losing it!”
