Robbie: Well, Adam's favourite alarm clock chucked it in this morning. So, Tripod wrote an ode to it. Also palindromes - words you can say backwards, and they stay the same.

Yon and Gatesy: Goodbye, little alarm clock,
You've given me great times.
Gatesy: But lately, time's been slipping away from you.
Yon and Gatesy: Why you've given up on me, I don't know.
Tripod: Alarm clock, don't be sour,
You're losing all your power,
It's your eleventh hour,
Time to go.

Yon: I got you when I was ten,
Things were simpler then.
You woke me up in time for the early-bird show.
And later on that day,
You woke me up okay,
In time for Simon Townsend's Wonderworld.

Scod: I slept a lot as a kid,
Oh, alarm clock, all the things we did.
Yon and Gatesy: Yeah, yeah.
Scod: Well, you didn't do much,
You just sat there making noise,
And now that's what I do for a living.

Yon and Gatesy: Goodbye, little alarm clock,
You've given me great times.
Gatesy: But lately, time's been slipping away from you.
Yon and Gatesy: Why you've given up on me, I don't know.
Tripod: Alarm clock, don't be sour,
You're losing all your power,
It's your eleventh hour,
Time to go.

Yon: And when my teenage years unfurled,
When I brought home a girl,
You sat and watched and never judged me once.
But not matter who it was,
They came second because,
Alarm clock, it's always your face that I saw.

Scod: I was a pretty weird kid,
They said I loved you, and I did.
Yon and Gatesy: Yeah, yeah.
Scod: But they can keep their skateboards,
'Cause you go backwards and forwards,
Not unlike words like "glenelg" or "boob".

Gatesy: Goodbye, little alarm clock, goodbye.
How could I ever replace you?
Maybe I should get one of those atomic clocks,
That would suit me just well.

Yon and Gatesy: Why you've given up on me, I don't know.
Tripod: Alarm clock, don't be sour,
You're losing all your power,
It's your eleventh hour,
Time to go.

Gatesy: Goodbye, alarm clock, goodbye...

    General CommentGreat song! how high is Scods voice!!!!!!! in the 3rd last verse it's like wow... nice work... (nice work in your ability to sing high, scod)

    However my brother and i are having a debate. I insist that scods voice is higher, but my brother thinks that gatesy's voice is higher... I say scods voice is higher in all aspects, my brother insisted that scod only sings high in Falsetto. And that gatesy sings high from the chest loudly.

    What do you think?
