CLOCK ON THE WALL (Randy Bachman) The Guess Who - 1966 The clock on the wall says twelve noon Guess I'd better get up soon The clock on the wall says twenty-to-one And there's things to be done Yeah, the clock on the wall keeps pushin' me That's not the way I want my life to be If you take any pushin' from that clock on the wall You won't be happy at all The clock on the wall says a quarter-to-three I got people to see Meet my friend Clive, start drinkin' by five End up wishin' I weren't alive I look at the clock, it says twenty-to-nine I gotta meet my girl on time She puts me down and then, by twenty-to-ten I'm out drinkin' again Yeah, the clock on the wall keeps pushin' me That's not the way I want my life to be If you take any pushin' from that clock on the wall You won't be happy at all The clock on the wall strikes the midnight hour I'm feelin' dirty and sour I feel the clock pushin' like the blade of a knife I wanna end my life But it ain't no use, I'm used to this abuse This is my moment of truth Life is empty, my friends are all gone But like the clock on the wall, I'll go on and on and on The clock on the wall keeps pushin' me That's not the way I want my life to be If you take any pushin' from that clock on the wall You won't be happy at all It's watchin' me every day, the hours and minutes tick away I'm not gettin' any younger, it keeps on and on and on I can't stand it, it never stops for anything The clock just keeps moving, ticking My life is going, the clock is moving.........FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2006)
