All on my own and I just can't cope
I Haven't seen a hot dinner or a bar of soap
Since you left me bereft of hope
now all I ever seem to do
is mope aroud my tiny little council flat
nothing up my sleeve, nothing under my hat

And the clock just keeps on ticking
there's nobody here but this chicken
and the clock just keeps on ticking
ther's nobody here but us chickens

all on my own and it echoes when I cough
my life seems to flutter by like a moth
shaking all the empty cans, nothing but froth
nothing to cook with and nothing to eat off
came the wheels, down fell the facade
I thrilled to your squeals as I twisted my blade

And the clock just keeps on ticking
There's nothing here but this chicken
and the clock just keeps on ticking
There's nobody her but us chickens

    General Commentactually some would prefer the line
    "lets just get some chickens" in place of "the clock just keeps on tickin"

    but leave that up to your own ears

    General Commentor if you listen very carefully it all my sounds like the backing vocals are singing "lets just get some chickens"
