If your alarm hadn’t sounded and the time was now nine,
Should you still be in bed or somewhere else at that time?
But if clocks didn’t exist to tell the time left in a day,
Then a day could be a year and for a year we could play.
But if you have time on your hands or no time to spare,
I hope you find time for that summertime stare.
But if you’ve no time to stare whilst on the move
Could you ask time to slow so in time you can improve?
But no, time has no master. It doesn’t answer to you.
It acts how it likes and never waits in a queue.
There’s only one thing of time of which we can be sure.
That’s when your time is over it won’t give you any more.
