"Tick Tock" as written by and Kent Steedman Damien Lovelock....
Snap crackle pop it's nine o' clock
Radio's tuned to John
It's a Lemon Liquid Love affair
Another perfect day begun
Valium dulls the memory
Of lifetimes long ago
She never dreamt she'd just be meant
To cook and wash and sew

How did it ever come to this
It's not the life I choose
Mindless repetition
Round and round we go, oh no...

Tick tock it's three o' clock
Washing on the line
Cancel the hairdresser
She hasn't got the time
Hello kids, how was school
Was everything OK
Got stoned on history
Just another boring day

How did it ever come to this
It's not the life I choose
Mindless repetition
Round and round we go, oh no...

Tick tock it's six o' clock
Dinner's on the plate
Hubby's on the phone D.U.I.
Sorry honey I'll be late
Throughout the course of history
Roles have never changed
But something better happen
Before we all get too estranged
