My Grandpa



My grandpa’s so old

he remembers World War Two.


My grandpa’s sooooo old

he rode a penny-farthing to school.


My grandpa’s sooooooooo old

he met Henry the Eighth.


My grandpa’s soooooooooooooooo old

he sailed with the Vikings.


My grandpa’s sooooooooooooooooooooo old

he helped build the pyramids.


My grandpa’s soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo old

that when he was little he lived in a cave and had a pet dinosaur.

My grandpa's soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo old

he witnessed the Big Bang.

My grandpa's old.
