Grandpa loved his motorboat,
All the days of his life;
He wouldn't trade it in for a pot of gold,
He'd rather part with his wife.
He was up every morning at five o'clock,
Fishin' in the cold, cold sea;
But at night when he got home, Grandma said,
"Take your cold, cold hands off of me."

Well, he'd listen to Garner Ted Armstrong,
And he listened to the Sunday news;
He don't care too much about money,
He never heard of Howard Hughes.
And he thinks that workin' on Sunday,
Is the biggest sin of all;
He got pictures of Oral Roberts,
Hangin' all over his wall.

Well, he fished in the broad Atlantic,
Wore rubbers up to his chin;
He used to smoke Beechport tobacco,
Though smoking was a sin.
But since he's done retired,
And given up all that stuff;
He wears suspenders to keep his pants up,
'Cause his belt ain't big enough.

Grandpa loved his motorboat,
All the days of his life;
He wouldn't trade it in for a pot of gold,
He'd rather part with his wife.
He was up every morning at five o'clock,
Fishin' in the cold, cold sea;
At night when he got home, Grandma said,
"Take your cold, cold hands off of me."

He'll soon go home to glory,
In the sweet by and by;
Goin' up with a tape and measure the gate,
It's gotta be wide and high.
When Jesus sees him a-coming,
And forgives all the times he's sinned;
He'll turn right around and come right back down,
If he can't take his motorboat in.

Grandpa loved his motorboat,
All the days of his life;
He wouldn't trade it in for a pot of gold,
He'd rather part with his wife.
He was up every morning at five o'clock,
Fishin' in the cold, cold sea;
But at night when he got home, Grandma said,
"Take your cold, cold hands off of me."
But at night when he got home, Grandma said,
"Take your cold, cold hands off of me."
