The Clock keeps ticking and tocking

The clock keeps ticking

It keeps ticking and tocking

The clock keeps ticking
It keeps ticking and tocking
Until eternity swallows time up
Oh, how it ticks and tocks in sweet rhythm
It ticks and tocks so much so that even TikTok’s downloads cannot compete
The clock keeps ticking
It keeps ticking and tocking
Until eternity swallows time up
What will be the sum of your ticks and your tocks?
Seconds turning into minutes,
Minutes turning into hours,
Hours turning into days,
Days turning into weeks,
Weeks turning into months,
Months turning into years,
And you whisper, “This clock is ticking me off! Just one more nap!”
“Teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom”
The Teacher says, “Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come”
The clock keeps ticking
It keeps ticking and tocking
Until eternity swallows time up!
What will be the sum of your ticks and your tocks?
