"MY NAME IS TIME"

Intro:
Tic toc, ticka ticka toc toc.
[Two times]

[Tic toc, ticka ticka toc toc.]

It's funny how some people say,
"Time is going slow."
But then some people say time flies,
So what speed does time really go?

[Tic toc, ticka ticka toc toc.
Tic toc, ticka ticka toc toc.]

Time began so long ago, its pace is still the same;
As steady as the sun and moon,
Moving without stress or strain.

Chorus 1
In the daytime and nighttime,
I'm here all your lifetime,
Don't lose me, use me wisely everyday.
My name is Time, and no matter what you do,
I' mtic toc, tic toc a-tickin', [Yes!] tic toc, tic toc a-tickin',
Tic toc, tic toc tickin' away.

[Tick tock, tick tock, tick tick, tick tock,
Ticka ticka tick tick tick tick tick tick tock!]-

I'm the time you use to eat,
And sleep and travel, too.
I am with you all the time;
How you use me is up to you.

[Tic toc, ticka ticka toc toc.
Tic toc, ticka ticka toc toc.]

I'm sorry I can't wait for you,
There's no way I can stop.
But you can keep your eye on me
By checking with your watch or clock.

Chorus 2
In the daytime and nighttime,
I'm here all your lifetime,
[Please!] Don't lose me,
Use me wisely everyday. [Oh, every day]
My name is Time,
And no matter what you do [ooh, what you do]
I'm tic toc, tic toc a-tickin', [Uh-huh!]
Tic toc, tic toc a-tickin',
Tic toc, tic toc tickin' away.

When you arrange to meet your friends at four o'clock,
Please don't be late, 'cause I won't wait;
I'm on time if you're there or not.

But if you cause your friends to wait,
You waste their precious time.
[Ohh!] The time you took you can't pay back,
So be a friend and be on time!

Chorus 3
In the daytime and nighttime,
I'm here all your lifetime,
[Please!] don't lose me,
[Won't you] Use me wisely everyday [every day].
My name is Time, and no matter what you do
[ooh, what you do] I'm tic toc, tic toc a-tickin',
[Yes!] Tic toc, tic toc a-tickin',
Tic toc, tic toc tickin' away.

Chorus 4
My name [my name] is Time,
And no matter what you do
I'm tic toc, tic toc a-tickin', [Uh-huh!]
Tic toc, tic toc a-tickin', tic toc,
Tic toc tickin' away.
I'm tic toc, tic toc tickin' away.

[Tic toc, ticka ticka toc toc.]
Repeat continually

Rap
Tick tock! --Tick tock,-tockin'!
Tick tock, -talkin' to ya! Tick tock,
The clock is talkin' to ya! Not stoppin',
The clock is tickin', tellin' the time,
Tickin' the time! Tockin' it to ya,
Clockin' it to ya, rockin' it to ya!
Tick tock, tick-a-tock talkin' to ya!
Tick tock! --Tick tock!

A capella Tick tock!

Uhhuh!
