Grandparent’s Day Songs


Tune:  You Are My Sunshine

You are my Grandma
You are my Grandpa
You make me happy when I’m  with you
You give good hugs and
You give good kisses
Hope you know how much   I Love You!


At Sumter County Primary School in Americus, Georgia, we invite our grandparents to join us for breakfast. We call this special occasion “Grits for Grandparents”.

After breakfast, my class will sing this special song.

Tune: Are you sleeping?

Hello, Grandma

Hello, Grandma

How do you do?

How do you do?

You are very special.

You are very special.

I love you.

I love you.

Hello, Grandpa

Hello, Grandpa

How do you do?

How do you do?

You are very special.

You are very special.

I love you.

I love you.

(The students then blow their Grandparents a kiss.)


Let’s Go See Our Grandparents (tune of Take Me Out to the Ballgame)

Let’s go see our Grandparents
Take us there for a while
Mommy and Daddy both need a break
We’ll play games and we’ll stay up real late

Oh we want to thank our Grandparents
For all the things that they do
So its… time… to… say
“You’re the Best! And that WE LOVE YOU!


This is a little song that my little friend made up. Sing to the tune of Are you sleeping.

Are you sleeping
Are you sleeping
Grandpa John
Grandpa John
Grandma Margaret calls you
Grandma Margaret calls you
To wake up
To wake up


Every year our school has “Grandfriends Day” and I am always looking for good songs. This year one of my three-year-olds made up this song for us to sing (tune: “Frere Jacques”)

Grandparents, grandparents’
I love you; I love you.
I love you very much
I love you very much
Makes me feel good
Makes me feel good.


We sang this song for our GrandFriends and then handed them a little red box with a Hershey kiss inside.

“Oh I wish I had a little red box to put my Grand Friend in
I’d take them out go how-do-you-do and put them back again. Repeat but instead of saying how-do-you-do, say “go kiss-kiss-kiss” and “go hug-hug-hug”
