My Pop he was my mother’s dad

In life he gave it all he had,

My Pop he was so ever sweet

He was a favorite on the street.

“Hey George” they’d call with hearty voice

“What’s new today, what is our choice ?”

He knew that they would come to eat

He’d nod his head and tap his feet.

He’d do a jig to make them smile

Still taking orders all the while,

He swept that sidewalk every morn

And worked that store from early dawn.

My Nana she came in at noon

It seemed that never was too soon

And after lunch was almost through

He made the bank by half-past two

He never was a minute late

And walked with happy spritely gait !

One little man in woolen cap

He’d head on home to take his nap.

When Nana died in sixty-two

We thought his storekeep time was through

It came as one complete surprise

He joined me in my enterprise !
