"I'm a clockwork creep
They wind me up and let me go
Going out of my mind

Tick a tick a time bomb

With a brand new set
I'll spread my wings -
To prove how good I am to you"
Tick a tick a time bomb
Tick a tick a time bomb
Tick a tick a time bomb
Tick a tick a time bomb
Meanwhile in the cargo of escargot
Advertising that our time is running
Oh with just one minute to live
Cause what goes up must come
Down, down, down, down, down
Oh, the gravity of the situation
That keeps this thing in operation
The pilot is too busy flirtin'
That there's a bomb down there

Said the little bomb,
Then time would stop
And jumbo would be safe to land"
Tick a tick a time bomb
Tick a tick a time bomb
My landings are the envy
From Chattanooga to Japan
What a swell little plane
What a great little plane

I'm a clockwork wreck
Must keep my date to detonate

Tick a tick a time bomb

Tick a tick a time bomb

Tick a tick a time bomb
