lyrics

A song that a grandma and her niece uses for stirring up each other and starting the game. Niece said that she is ready to make the party and starts dressing her parkling in unique clothes. Grandma replies that she owns the best one because it is larger and the more colourful.
You should dress in your finest and cleanest clothes on the party day, and the grandma knows that the niece will get her dress dirty just before going to the party. It happens all the time. The niece starts to cry and the grandma surprises her with a new dress, fancier than the other, that she has made with love just for her. It is a dress that looks exactly like the grandma's one, big and colourful.
The happy niece screams: “Thank you, thank you! Up with grandmothers!!!!”
