Lyrics WE FOUND OUT -
YES, WE DID,
WE FOUND OUT -
NOW WE KNOW,
WE FOUND OUT -
WE FOUND OUT
THAT GRANDMA PLAYS THE NUMBERS.
WE FOUND OUT -
YES, WE DID,
WE FOUND OUT -
SHE COULDN'T KEEP IT HID,
WE FOUND OUT -
NOW WE KNOW
THAT GRANDMA PLAYS THE NUMBERS.

THINKS ABOUT THEM EV'RY DAY,
DREAMS ABOUT THEM EV'RY NIGHT,
GETS UP EARLY IN THE MORNIN',
SEE THAT HER NUMBERS
COME OUT JUST RIGHT.

WE FOUND OUT -
YES, WE KNOW,
WE FOUND OUT -
BLESS HER SOUL,
WE FOUND OUT -
NOW WE KNOW
THAT GRANDMA PLAYS THE NUMBERS.

WE FOUND OUT -
YES, WE KNOW,
WE FOUND OUT -
BLESS HER SOUL,
WE FOUND OUT -
NOW WE KNOW
THAT GRANDMA PLAYS THE NUMBERS.
WE FOUND OUT -
YES, OH, YES,
WE FOUND OUT -
WE FOUND OUT,
WE FOUND OUT -
NOW WE KNOW
THAT GRANDMA PLAYS THE NUMBERS.

SHE'S AT THE FRUIT STAND
EVERY DAY,
BUYS BANANAS BY THE BUNCH,
SHE LOOKS AT ALL THE PRICE TAGS,
THAT'S WHERE SHE GETS HER HUNCH.

WE FOUND OUT -
YES, WE KNOW,
WE FOUND OUT -
BLESS HER SOUL,
WE FOUND OUT -
NOW WE KNOW
THAT GRANDMA PLAYS THE NUMBERS.
