Hey, Richard won't be meeting you for dinner
Maria won't be burning any candles
Cody will sin, went straight home again
Mrs. Jenkins counts down the street

They wanna stay busy and so they do
Watching the sands run through

Petey gave out, took a half-day
And Carol is always on the move
No time for Elaine to call around this morning
Many tried to stay so very still

They wanna do important things and so they do
Watching the little balls drop through

Mirror, mirror, won't you tell me
All that glitters not saying very much
Don't know why I can't dedicate
They hear the call
to carry that bad weight

Nate and Tanya are staying together
Before they finally had to move on
Eddy says goodbye with too much feeling
Sherry likes to keep it short and cold

They say they're awake now and it's true
They're watching the sands run through
