Tik tak tok
Goes the old wall clock.
The very same old way it did before.
I wonder if it will do it once more.
After am long gone,
For it has been there ever since I was born.
It has seen my childhood,
All the times I’ve been through; bad and good.
Tak tik tok
Goes the tired and worn out wall clock.
Had it been a human being, it would talk.
Oh poor old wall clock, you never cease to work.
Indicating so many a time for us;
Time to wake, time to pray, time to play and time to work.
Old wall clock, am grateful for everything you did
From reminding me that it was time to eat,
to telling me it was time to retire to bed and sleep.
Tok tik tak
It goes forth and back.
Till daylight turns dark.
Why’d you have to do this all year?
