Knives To Grind
Paul Sanchez

knives to grind, knives to grind
knives to grind, knives to grind

knives to grind I got knives to grind
butter knives, steak knives, silver so fine
I'll sharpen 'em well, that's what I sell

knives to grind, knives to grind
knives to grind, knives to grind

Papa they call me, Papa's my name
got fifteen children all look the same
but other people too call me papa they do

knives to grind, knives to grind
knives to grind, knives to grind

thirty years now for thirty odd years
I been sharpening knives for the people 'round here
one day soon I'm gonna fly to the moon

knives to grind, knives to grind
knives to grind, knives to grind

one day I'll wake up a little too late
be sharpening knives up at the pearly gates
St. Peter and Jesus saying, "Papa you please us"

knives to grind, knives to grind
knives to grind, knives to grind
