​Granny Takes a Trip

This song is by Ralph McTell and appears on the album Eight Frames A Second (1968).

Oh she lives all alone
In a house by a school
She wears fur coats and hats
And old fashioned jewels.
And her one aim in life
Is to be on the screen,
Top billing for Granny
Is her favourite dream.

So once a year Granny takes a trip
Always first class and she's well equipped.
For the movie auditions in Hollywood Town
She always turns up
But she's always turned down.

So Granny, my dear,
We all wish you the best
And hope that you find
Your happiness
And one day on the screen
Granny's bound to be seen
If she turns up again
She's bound to find fame.

So once a year Granny takes a trip
Always first class and she's well equipped.
For the movie auditions in Hollywood Town
She always turns up
But she's always turned down.
