Why won’t the clock
go tock?
Tick-tick-tick-tick-

Oh, why won’t that ticking
stop?

Why won’t that clock
stop?
As it’s ticking away time
to the 13th hour
when that rose in her prime
will softly
drop
and my world will stop

Who remembers her crime?
None, none but time
Tick-tick-tick-tick
Click-clack-click-click
tap her nails on the arm of the chair
Who would dare
to punish her?
Who remembers her crime?

None, none but time.
