The evening fog was rollin' in
It was gettin' hard to see
The old white car edged down the road
Headed for the Double ‘E'

She was bringin' down dinner for Grandpa
It was crawling with vitamins
And tender as a mother's love
Tender as a mother's love
When she saw the TV vans
The side door was open

There were three TVs
Grandpa's face was on every one
He was talkin' to a woman with a microphone
She was sexy and her hair was all done
Sun Green came down and met Grandma then

"My you're such a beautiful girl.
Mother Earth needs more like you.
You should go out now and see the world.
"What's Grandpa doin' on TV?

I got his dinner in the car.
All these vans have blocked our way
But we can carry it,
It's not too far."

    General CommentIn relation to the Greendale album, this song takes place right after the song: Grandpa's Interview. In it Sun Green finds Grandpa right after he dies, when she is delivering him food. Grandma then tells her to out and see the world and grandpa's death inspires her to bring change to many of the problems in America: ie-right wing politics, environmental issues, capitalism, corporate greed, etc.

    excellent song, and these issues need to be resolved
