Counting Buttons


Nanny was an old lady
  always rocking in her chair
On her front porch
  you would find her there
My daughter at her young age
  loved to sit on Nannys lap
Counting one, two, three buttons
  and then they would clap
Day in and day out
  counting buttons was their thing
Much joy and laughter
  this simple task would bring
I truely believe
  this is how my daughter learned to count
On the lap of an old lady
  in memory of Nanny we recount
