Harry: C'mon guys stop mucking around; we only have five minutes until our show is on
Robin: That's not enough time!
Tony the Talking Clock: There is always time for a song.
Harry: What? Who is that?
[Verse 1: Tony]
Time is a tool you can put on the wall,
Or wear it on your wrist. The past is far behind us;
The future doesn't exist.
Manny: What's the time?
Tony: It's quarter to nine;
Time to have a bath.
Robin: What do you mean?
We're already clean.
Tony: Scrub, scrub, scrub
'til the water's brown.
Time is a ruler to measure the day
It doesn't go backwards, only one way
Watch it go round like a merry-go-round
Going so fast like a merry-go-round
Let's go on a journey
A journey through time
A time that's changing all the time
It's time to go to time
Harry: But we don't really want to; we're going to miss our show.
Tony: Don't be stupid, friends
C'mon! It's time to go
[Verse 2: Tony]
Time is old, like the Victorian times
Street Vendor: With cobbles and plague and speaking in rhyme
Chimney Sweeper: With cobbles and chimneys, a simpler time
Sewer Person: With cobbles and sawdust and batteries and slime
Manny: This tree that is old has circles inside.
Tony: The tree that is older has shriveled and died
Robin: The apple that's fresh is ripe to the core
Apple: And I rot over time and I'm not anymore
Tony: Time can be told by the moon or the sun,
But time flies fast when you're having fun
There's a time and a place for mucking around!
Robin: Like birthdays!
Harry: And camping!
Manny: I'm friends with my dad
*Manny's dad grunts*
Harry: And then what happened after the olden days?
[Bridge 2: Tony]
Time went new and got old, like history
Stuff from the past went into a mystery
Manny: An old man died
Tony: But look! A computer!
Everything's cool! It's the future!
Time is now
The future anew
Look at all the wonderful things you can do
With gadgets and gizmos and email addresses.
Manny: My dad is c-a com-computer
*Manny's dad grunts*
Tony: Look at the time!
Robin: It's quarter to eight; there's fish on my plate
Manny: It's twenty past day; there's fish on my tray
Robin: It's eleven to twelve; there's fish in the bath
Harry: It's nine thirty; there's fish everywhere. Fish everywhere
[Verse 3: Tony]
Now you can see the importance of time
It helps us make pizza
It keeps things in line
Robin: But when did it start?
Manny: And when will it stop?
Tony: Time is important, and I am a clock
Harry: If we run out of time, then where does it go?
Manny: Is time even real? Does anyone know?
Robin: Maybe time's just a construct of human perception
An illusion created by-
Sunrise, sunset, night and day
The changing seasons
The smell of hay
Look at your hair grow
Isn't it strange
How time makes your appearance change?
Make it stop!
Tony: It's out of my hands
I'm only a clock
Don't worry, I'm sure you'll be fine
But eventually everyone runs out of time
