Lyrics by Franz Nicolay and Emilyn Brodsky
Set your clock ten minutes late
Close your eyes and concentrate
On me. On you. Can’t we? Won’t you?
Set your clock two hours late
Just to make our children wait
For us…Won’t you? Can’t we?
…Our small worlds and sympathies
Made our loves, our friends,
We skinned our knees, didn’t we?
Don’t we? Won’t we?
Please, world, give us what we need
We plead for the world to give us what we need
We will the world to lend us all we need
But it ends, we concede, learn joy
