Tickin' Clock

TICKIN’ CLOCK/Tony Adamo/3/12/2005

Your life is just a tickin’ clock from the day you arrive…….
It’s just an old tickin’ clock…..
Till the day you say good bye…
. Our lives are a tickin’ clock in the hands of time….
And every one we meet is a second gone by…

So move over life train and let me walk on by
I gotta lot of livin’ to do as my tickin’ clock rolls by

Spoken word
You see our lives are just a tickin’ clock with every breath we take
We step away from our past into our future fate
Your whole life is just one hour and your youth was spent in seconds
Now you wish you had years to fight back your tickin’ clock.
AHHHHHH! So I’ve got to say

Ending Bridge:
So move over life train, oh let me walk, let me walk on by
Spoken word
I gotta lot of livin’ to do as my tickin’ clock rolls by

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
