Dancin' 'Round The Kitchen (The Fables) tabs
Click Here for tabs.

My Pop was a hard workin' man from Spaniards Bay,
He never had much time to stop;
He'd work till late in the evening from the break of dawn,
For enough to get him by was all he got.

Grandma's gentle hand touched so many hearts in town,
Everyone around called her Nan;
She knew just how to pick you up when you were feelin' down,
Always there to help a stranger or a friend.

I remember watching my Pop and my Nan,
Waltzing to the Black Velvet Band;
Smiles on their faces, they embraced one another,
Dancin' 'round the kitchen, hand in hand.

Up in the garden, when I should have been in school,
Workin' the ground with my Pop;
He said, "There's work to be done son, you must lend a hand,
You know we're all depending on the crop."

I remember watching my Pop and my Nan,
Waltzing to the Black Velvet Band;
Smiles on their faces, they embraced one another,
Dancin' 'round the kitchen, hand in hand.

Nan, she'd always greet you with a kiss and a smile,
They worked real hard, then took time out for a while.
