Grandpa, Oh Grandpa

爺爺 Je4 Je4/2 (Ye2 Ye5)
Grandpa, oh Grandpa
You lifted me with one hand at a mere 10 lbs.
At five months old I was playing with your thick bifocals
Which was the time of my life
Your elderly eyes delighted with immense sweet joy at my presence
Yet how young I was

爺爺 Je4 Je4/2 (Ye2 Ye5)
