I Wanna Fly

by Liz Zetlin & Don Holman
for our granddaughter Ella
arranged and recorded by Deanne Hallman http://www.deannehallman.ca

Gramma, Gramma let’s go out side today
Gramma, Gramma, I wanna play
I wanna see the birds up in the sky
Gramma, Gramma, I wanna fly.

Gramma, Gramma I wanna roll on the grass
Gramma, Gramma, I wanna run real fast.
I wanna feel the wind in my hair
I wanna take my bear.

Gramma, Gramma I wanna climb a tree.
Gramma, Gramma, I wanna buzz like a bee.
I wanna bloom like a rose
Oh, let’s twirl on our toes.

CHORUS
Little one you mean so much to me
You’re everything I hoped you be
You’re kind and funny, smart and strong
I wanna be with you all day long

Grandpa, Grandpa let’s go out side today
Grandpa, Grandpa, I wanna play
I wanna bounce on your knee
And talk philosophy.

Grandpa, Grandpa I wanna jump the fence.
Grandpa, Grandpa, I wanna talk nonsense.
I wanna put on your shoes.
I wanna paddle a canoe.

Grandpa, Grandpa, I wanna sail a boat.
Grandpa, Grandpa I wanna float
I wanna sing like a lark.
I wanna swim like a shark.

CHORUS
Little one you mean so much to me
You’re everything I hoped you be
You’re kind and funny, smart and strong
Come on, help us sing this song.

Gramma, Gramma, I wanna swing in the park.
play hide and seek in the dark.
I wanna dig a deep hole.
I wanna be small as a mole.

Grandpa, Grandpa, let’s go out side today.
Gramma, Gramma I wanna play.
I wanna be tall as a horse
I want you to love me, of course.

CHORUS
Little one you mean so much to me
You’re everything I hoped you be
You’re kind and funny, smart and strong
we love it when you sing along

Gramma, Gramma let’s go out side today
Grandpa, Grandpa, I wanna play
I wanna see the birds up in the sky
Gramma, Grandpa, I wanna fly.
Gramma, Grandpa, I wanna fly.
