Here's to our grandmother, may God bless her heart,
After grandfather died she lost all of her smarts;
She made up her mind she needed a man,
And sat down to thinkin' and made up a plan.
She figured the best way was to go out on the town,
And check out the night scene to see who was around;
She bought a new wig full of red and of gold,
And dressed like a floozy, a sight to behold.
Her dress was too short and her stockings they sagged,
But try as we might she could not be de-swayed;
Her mind was made up, no way was she wrong,
And she topped off the outfit with a Five Roses thong.

Oh, the Five Roses thong that me grandmother wore,
Musta tickled and itched in some places for sure;
For she wiggled and jiggled and pulled her back door,
For relief from the Five Roses thong that she wore.

From her Five Roses drawers she took such great pains,
To cut them with care and to trim 'round the stains;
With gentle compassion she sewed 'em up tight,
Taking great care so they would fit her just right.
When she finished she finally sighed with a frown,
They'll be fine with me pumps and me nice silver gown;
She painted her face full of putty and goop,
And out of the front door so proudly she trooped.
When she stepped on the bus for to her 'er downtown,
The driver was baffled by the sight and the sound;
As she chomped on her dentures she was hummin' a song,
She was headed downtown in her Five Roses thong.

Oh, the Five Roses thong that me grandmother wore,
Musta tickled and itched in some places for sure;
For she wiggled and jiggled and pulled her back door,
For relief from the Five Roses thong that she wore.

But for Granny 'twas no win, her night was a bust,
At one in the morning she got back on the bus;
She headed back home with her pumps in her hand,
Downtown was no place to look for a man.
She trudged down the aisle to a seat in the rear,
To sit in the dark and to shed a flat tear;
What could have went wrong, was her plan so far off?
Her butt was aflame and her sex appeal lost.
Next morning at daylight our driveway was littered,
With a red golden wig and a gown full of glitter;
Granny was home with her old drawers back on,
While the stop sign outside wore her Five Roses thong.

Oh, the Five Roses thong that me grandmother wore,
Musta tickled and itched in some places for sure;
For she wiggled and jiggled and pulled her back door,
For relief from the Five Roses thong that she wore.
For relief from the Five Roses thong that she wore.
