Grandma's on the Net!

Grandma used to make us cherry pies
and call us on the phone.
She would talk to us for hours,
now she leaves us all alone.

We miss her homemade biscuits and
I'll make this little bet -
If you want to contact Grandma,
you'll have to surf the net.

Grandma's surfin' the net, yes, she's
surfin' the net.
We've been calling her all morning
and we haven't got her yet.

She's on her e-mail network with all
her electronic friends.
If you want to talk to Grandma,
you'll have to surf the net.

Grandma's never surfed at Malibu or
caught a wave at Waikiki.
She's never seen a surf board; hang
ten doesn't mean a thing, you see.

She's never met a beach bum;
to her Moon Doggie is just a pup.
But when she heads to her computer,
you know the surf is up.

Grandma's getting older and her eyes
are getting dim.
Her random access memory is
half of what it's been.

When St. Peter comes to call,
she'll say I can't go yet.
He'll have to wait on Grandma,
'cause Grandma's surfin' the net.
