A Watched Watch

I watched my watch a little while
While its second hand went ‘round its dial,
Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock,
I listened very closely and with an ironic smile
Realised the silly little thing thinks it's a clock!

Oh, little watch upon my wrist,
I think that you, poor thing,
Have missed your calling being small,
You have the heart of a great grandfather clock
TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK
And although you have no chime
You tell the time as well as any grandfather clock that stands so proudly tall.

Though you, poor little watch, of such grand splendour had so sadly missed,
Tis just as well for me; I couldn't wear a great grandfather clock upon my wrist!
