A song about Granny and the Earth

Older woman singing I Am Woman
Granny has the X-Factor, no doubt about that

I put my granny on The X Factor
and the judges cheered like a choir.
I put my granny on The Bachelor
and she set that boy on fire.
I put my granny on Survivor
and she went right to the wire.

I put my granny on Real Housewives
and she rose above the mire.
I put her on The Apprentice
and she alone got hired.
I put my granny on the internet
and she got the whole town wired.

I put my granny in charge of Earth
and she said, Sweetie
that’s quite enough.
I can’t do everything alone.
It’s your turn now.
I’m tired.
