He’s a grand old guy with a spark in his eye
And as bright as the Fourth of July!
And they say that he’s
Got both his knees
And still takes his brandy with rye.
Now he’s ninety-nine
And he’s feeling fine,
And he still takes the curves in high!
We’ll all be here
Again next year
To cheer Homer the grand old guy!
