Since before my adolescence remembrance of you commences
Will never forget how you taught a scrub to catch and connect
with pitchin'
We'd sit and watch the Mets and Yankees
As bad as I was, can't remember if ya spanked me
While babysittin' this nigga, you became a father figure
Mowed the lawn with ya whenever
Bourbon was your liquor
Who'd figure the strongest man I knew could have a bad ticker
And the last time we'd see each other was Christmas '95
Without ever havin' a chance to say goodbye
You left the summer of '96, the 1st of July
Now reside in peace, released from all the pressure and pain
Your grandson proclaims the name Nelson forever reigns

(chorus)
Grand groove, King of my crew
Grand groove, I dedicate this to you

You moved from Queens to Tennessee when in my mid-teens, later
Atlanta
Adopted Eileen when she was umpteen
Provided cream for your fam for years, retired
Now I understand what it is to be a man upon this planet
Took for granted the times you'd trip to NY on vacation
Thinkin' you'd be around for ever, probably neglected you
unconsciously
The thought of me Mcing made ya bug, vividly at times
Imaging our last hug is bugged
Don't seem to realise you ain't comin' back
A routine check. How, while getting' dressed, did stress give
you a heart attack?
Now reside in peace, released from all the pressure and pain
Your grandson proclaims the name Nelson forever reigns

(chorus)

We laughed for hours when you fell from off that bicycle
'Til tears trickled down my face
Memories never erased, laced with wisdom
Reflect up on my upbringing
Remember, you never missed a day
My school had me singing, forever in my heart
Never forget how much I love you
Thinkin' of you I miss the times together
Where it's better
You now reside in peace, released from all the pressure and
pain
Your grandson proclaims the name Nelson forever reigns
