My Grandfather's Clock - Lyrics

My Grandfather's clock was too large for
The shelf, so it stood 90 years on the floor.
It was taller by half than the old man
Himself, though it weighed not a pennyweight more.

It was bought on the morn of the day that he
Was born and was always his treasure and pride.
But it stopped, short, never to go again when the old man died.

90 years without slumbering, tick tock tick tock,
His life seconds numbering, tick tock tick tock,
It stopped, short, never to go again when the old man died.

Short instrumental break

It was bought on the morn of the day that he
Was born and was always his treasure and pride.
But it stopped, short, never to go again when the old man died.

90 years without slumbering, tick tock tick tock,
His life seconds numbering, tick tock tick tock,
It stopped, short, never to go again when the old man died.
And it stopped, short, never to go again when the old man died.
