I didn't know what was happening that night
All I seen was the Ambulances flashing lights
I start to look around
Then I see my grandfather laying on the ground
I was worried and crying
Afraid that my grandfather was dying
Later that night I found out it wasn't severe
It was just from smoking and drinking too much beer
A couple years go by
The same thing happens to this poor old guy
Instead this time, he had four strokes
And let me tell you, that is no joke
Now he's in a nursing home
Basically locked inside this smelly dome
He's not able to talk or move
Or like back in the old days, bust a groove
I miss the way he used to be
But I guess that's what smoking and drinking does to thee
