Tick tick tick tick,

Tick tick tick tock!

Goes the clock,

On the wall!

Tick tick tick tick,

Tick tick tick tock!

Never takes stock,

Of us all!

Tick tick tick tick,

Time never stops,

Marching to war!

Tick tick tick tock!

Life drips in drops,

What is it for!

Tick tick tick!

When yours is up,

You never know!

Tick tick tock!

So drink your sup,

Before you go!

Tick tick!

"The End" comes,

For its rent!

Tick tock!

Left without crumbs,

You ask what it meant!


You haven't long,

But still time yet!


Listen to this song,

And try to forget!

Tick tock tick tock!

Tick tock tic -
