Grandpa’s Groove

The old man Santiago didn’t catch a fish for days
He returned unhappy and was pretty damn ashamed
He talked to his grandson Manolin about this one last mood
Manolin thinks to himself,
This is grandpa’s groove

So on the 85th day on his unlucky streak
He caught them all and dragged them
For this gold dollar stream
Santiago’s friends
They caught the fish with his harpoon
The marlin thought to himself
This is grandpa’s groove

Ba-ba-ba-ba, ba-da-ba
Ba-da-ba-da, bow, uhm
Da-ba-da-buh-di-buh
Yeah this is grandpa’s groove

Everyone, they were screaming out,
That was grandpa’s groove.

So on the 85th day on his unlucky streak
He caught them all and dragged them
For this gold dollar stream
Santiago’s friends
They caught the fish with his harpoon
The marlin thought to himself
This is grandpa’s groove

The marlin died a bloody death,
Lounging in the sharks
They attacked the fisherman
But couldn’t kill this spark
He took home the skeleton of the marlin as his proof
Everyone was screaming out
This is grandpa’s groove.

Ba-ba-ba-ba, ba-da-ba
Ba-da-ba-da, bow, uhm
Da-ba-da-buh-di-buh
Yeah, this is grandpa’s groove

Ba-ba-ba-ba, ba-da-ba
Ba-da-ba-da, bow, uhm
Da-ba-da-buh-di-buh
Yeah, this is grandpa’s groove

Uh la-la-la, la-li-dam
Yeah, grandpa got those moves
And everyone was screaming out,
This is grandpa’s groove
