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


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


It watching its 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


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


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 of departure had come


Still the clock kept the time

With a soft and muffled chime

As we silently stood 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 seconds numbering

Tick, tock, tick, tock

It stopped short

Never to go again

When the old man died

It stopped short

Never to go again

When the old man died
