Clock Tickin

Clock Tickin' Rhythm

Cecil Mcnabb

(Cecil McNabb, KING 5116, 1958)

Woke up this morning to the frantic rhythm of the clock
* wakin' neighbours all over the block
It's a wakin' everybody to tell 'em it's time to rock
Yeah, well I hear a tick-tock-tick
I hear a tick-tock-tick
Let's rock! Tick-tock-tick, tick-tock-tick
It's a clock tickin' rhythm, it's a bringin' me out to rock
Rock it!

Well, rock-rock-rock-rock
Well, it's rock-rock-rock-rock
Well, it's rock-rock-rock-rock
We're gonna rock-rock-rock-rock
Well, let's rock

I hear the clock tickin' rhythm a-tickin' thru all the doors
Yeah, a woman's shoutin' and a man's fallin' on the floor
They caught the tickin' rhythm and they're rockin' on out for more

Well, I hear a tick-tock-tick
I hear a tick-tock-tick
Let's rock, tick-tock-tick
Tick-tock-tick
It's a clock tickin' rhythm, it's a-bringin' me out to rock
Rock it!

Well, rock-rock-rock-rock
We're gonna rock-rock-rock-rock
Let's rock-rock-rock-rock
Come on and rock-rock-rock-rock
Well, let's rock

I'm sittin' home lonesome, I can hear the clock on the wall
I'm gettin' all shook up to that rhythm of the tick tock call
It's a-callin' everybody, sayin' rock-rock-rock you all
Rock it!

Well, I hear a tick-tock-tick
I hear the tick-tock-tick
I hear a tick-tock-tick
I hear the tick-tock-tick
It's a clock tickin' rhythm, it's a-bringin' me out to rock
Rock it!

Well, rock-rock-rock-rock
Come on and rock-rock-rock-rock
Let's rock-rock-rock-rock
Come on and rock-rock-rock-rock
Well, let's rock
