Illustration for Tony Troy's musical "The Flute Player Song".
There was a man who made the clocks
Tick and tock and tock and tick.
But on the hour he never could
Make them as they should
Chime together a perfect chime.
Then came the day the old man died
And found in heaven not one tick nor single tock
Nor any hand on any clock.
In heaven you see, there is no time.
Alas! Alas no perfect chime
For the boasting craftsman Tick Tock man.
