Grumble mumble… Grumble mumble some more…
It’s granpa the grouchasaurus.
Out of the wrong side of the bed he said.
And they all looked to see what there might be
That might be long or short to go wrong
To make granpa a grouchasaurus.
Where was he hatched or born?
To what species does he belong?
Granpa the grouchasaurus
Offer up a sacrifice oh my.
A granny smith apple pie
Gum drops, organic candy a must
For a grouchasaurus!
Feed him fast and watch him change right before us.
