Grandpa's climbing the Family Tree.
He's going to the top. 
He says he'll go to Adam and Eve 
Before he has to stop. 
If he gets a little tired 
And has to take a break, 
He might stop at the Vikings 
But there's no telling yet. 
It is, of course, his legacy 
To all he dearly loves.
They'll sure know where they came from 
When he is up above.
