Sounds of Home — Spell

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the May 12th edition of Sounds of Home!


There’s No Grandma Just Like Mine

There’s no grandma just like mine
Anywhere, she is so fine.
You’ve not any? What a pity!
Yes, it is a pity!

Mine is sixty-six, they say.
I was six the other day;
So we two just fit together,
Very well together.

She tells stories while she knits;
One about a wicked witch,
One about a lovely princess,
Such a lovely princess.

Out of paper she cuts bears,
Horses, roosters, sheep and hares;
They can stand up on the table,
Right upon the table.

When I set them in a row,
And a little breath I blow,
Then they move like they were living,
Just like they were living.

Little songs she sings to me:
She can count to ninety-three;
She can knit such nice warm mittens,
Soft and woolly mittens.

There’s no Grandma just like mine
Anywhere. She is so fine.
You’ve not any? What a pity!
Yes, it is a pity.

Text: From the Norwegian, translated by S.D. Rodholm

    I remember Czechoslovakia! Second grade with Vicky Anderson one of my good friends.
    I love hearing the dulcimer, too!
