The Jodi Rae stripper clock
Is on display at the House of Rock
If you want to know the time of day
No one tells the time like Jodi Rae
No one tells the time like Jodi Rae

Rejected by her former love
The DJ from the Cotton Club
He wouldn't spare a new Double-A
He had no more time for Jodi Rae
He had no more time for Jodi Rae

I saw her lying in a box
I picked her up and I dusted her off
The Cotton Club DJ said, "Take her away"
I got no more time for Jodi Rae
I got no more time for Jodi Rae

She comes from a different age
When stripper clocks were all the rage
Frozen in time in a gold plastic frame
No one tells the time like Jodi Rae
No one tells the time like Jodi Rae

Passers-by oft times protest
Distracted by her nakedness
It's quarter-to her oops! I can't say
No one tells the time like Jodi Rae
No one tells the time like Jodi Rae

The lines around her eyes they show
That this is where the old strippers go
She's past her prime, so they say
This is the end of the line for Jodi Rae
This is the end of the line for Jodi Rae

The Jodi Rae stripper clock
Is on display the House of Rock
If you want to know the time of day
No one tells the time like Jodi Rae
No one tells the time like Jodi Rae

    Song Meaning"When I moved into my room at 20 Holloway Street, there was a box of stuff left there from the previous tenant. In that box was a clock. I asked Phil, the guy who owned the box about the clock and he told me I could have it. I brought it to Cape Breton and put it on the wall at the House of Rock in Sydney. Then came this song." -- Colleen Power

    This song was recorded live at The Ship Inn/The Ship Pub, with "The Ship Pub Chorus" which was composed of everyone drinking in the pub that night. We were taught the lyrics on the fly and the song was recorded in a single take. Her sound engineer referred to her as Colleen "One Take Or Less" Power.
