Grandma's Feather Bed lyrics
When I was a little bitty boy just up off the floor
We used to go out to Grandma's house every month end or so
Have chicken pie and country ham, homemade butter on the bread
But the best darn thing about Grandma's house was a great big feather bed

[Chorus:]
It was nine feet high and six feet wide, soft as a downy chick
It was made from the feathers of forty 'leven geese, took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick
It'd hold eight kids 'n' four hound dogs and a piggy we stole from the shed
Didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun on Grandma's feather bed

After supper we'd sit around the fire, the old folks would spit and chew
Pa would talk about the farm and the war, Granny'd sing a ballad or two
And I'd sit and listen and watch the fire till the cobwebs filled my head
Next thing I’d know I’d wake up in the mornin' in the middle of the old feather bed

[Chorus:]
It was nine feet high and six feet wide, soft as a downy chick
It was made from the feathers of forty 'leven geese, took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick
It'd hold eight kids 'n' four hound dogs and a piggy we stole from the shed
Didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun on Grandma's feather bed

Well I love my Ma, I love my Pa, I Love Granny and Grandpa too
I’ve Been fishing with my uncle, I’ve wrestled with my cousin, I even kissed Aunt Lou… eww!
But if I ever had to make a choice, I guess it ought to be said…
I'd trade ‘em all plus the gal down the road for Grandma's feather bed
Yes I'd trade ‘em all, plus the gal down the road…

… Well, maybe I’d better reconsider about the gal down the road!

[Chorus:]
It was nine feet high and six feet wide, and soft as a downy chick
It was made from the feathers of forty 'leven geese, took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick
It'd hold eight kids 'n' four hound dogs and a piggy we stole from the shed
Didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun on Grandma's feather bed
Didn't get much sleep but we had a lot of fun on Grandma's feather bed.
