my Grammy lives on an island

that's really quite remote

the only way to get there

would be plane or boat


my Grammy is an artist

she mostly paints the sea

sometimes she paints people

she's even painted me


my Grammy's really friendly

she has friends galore

if she lived in a bigger place

she'd have even more


my Grammy leads an adventurous life

she's been to lots of places

but now she wants to settle down

and spend time with familiar faces
