Grandfather's Clock (外公的大鐘) - Disney (迪士尼系列)

My grandfather's clock

Was too large for the shelf

So it stood ninety 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

 

It watching it's pendulum

 

Swing to and fro

 

Many hours had he spent while a boy

 

And in childhood and manhood

The clock seemed to know

And to share both his grief and his joy

 

For it struck twenty-four

When he entered at the door

 

With a blooming and beautiful bride

 

But it stopped short

 

Never to go again

 

When the old man died

 

Ninety 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

 

My grandfather said that of those he could hire

Not a servant so faithful he'd found

 

For it wasted no time and it had but one desire

At the close of each week to be wound

 

And it kept in it's place but not a frown upon its face

And it's hands never hung by it's side

 

But it stopped short never to go again

 

When the old man died

 

It rang an alarm in the dead of the night

An alarm that for years had been dumb

 

And we knew that his spirit was pluming for flight

That his hour for departure had come

 

Still the clock kept the time with a soft and muffled chime

As we stood there and watched by his side

 

But it stopped short never to go again

When the old man died

 

Ninety years without slumbering

Tick tock tick tock

His life's seconds numbering

Tick tock tick tock

But it stopped short never to go again

 

When the old man died
