Got the Time
Wake up, got another day to get through now
Got another man to see
Gotta call him on the telephone, ey oh
Gotta find a piece of paper

Sit down, got another letter to write
Think hard, gotta get a letter just right
There's a ringing on the telephone, oh no
Gotta write a little later

No such day as tomorrow only
One-two-three go!

Time - got the time tick-tick-tickin' in my head
Time - got the time tick-tick-tickin' in my head
Time - got the time tick-tick-tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head

If I tell you what I'm doing today
Will you shut up and get out of my way
Someone asked me what the time is, I don't know
Only know I gotta go now

No time, trying to get a watch repaired
No time, never got a thing to wear
Hear the ringin' of the telephone, no no
Hear a ringin' in my head now

No such day as tomorrow only
One-two-three go!

Time - got the time tick-tick-tickin' in my head
Time - got the time tick-tick-tickin' in my head
Time - got the time tick-tick-tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head

No such day as tomorrow only
One-two-three go!

Time - got the time tick-tick-tickin' in my head
Time - got the time tick-tick-tickin' in my head
Time - got the time tick-tick-tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head

Time - got the time tick-tick-tickin' in my head
Time - got the time tick-tick-tickin' in my head
Time - got the time tick
