The Clock of Life
Tick-tock tick-tock as time gone by.
Never coming back just gone, away, and fly.
Use them wisely before it’s late.
Doing nothing is such a waste.
Play with joy in the daylight.
Sleep in the silent shadows of midnight.
Day and night, night and day
Time is just ticking away.
Time is still here
There is no need to fear.
Don’t ever sigh
Be thankful to be alive.
Time is away and gone.
Listen to the funeral song.
No more time like I said
You are now in the world of dead.
Tick-tock tick-tock as time comes again.
Walking your way to the afterlife train.
Use them wisely during this time.
Tick-tock tick-tock as time begins to rewind.
