Time Piece

I went to one of the King’s Singers live shows earlier this year. The King’s Singers are a British a-capella vocal ensemble who have a wide range repertoire from classical to popular music. I loved the concert and I highly recommend it. One of their originals is especially fun to listen to. It’s “Time Piece” by Paul Patterson. I could not hold myself back and laughed out loud during the song, not just because of the lyrics but because of their fabulous interpretation. Fortunately, I was not the only one to laugh, so it was just half as embarassing….

Time Piece
In six days God created the world
and saw that it was good
and rested on the seventh day
from all the work that he had made.
Life was good. All was well.
Paradise was looking c00L.
One day Eve said:
“Hey Adam! What’s that you’re wearing on your wrist?”
“It’s a watch”.
It’s the tick and the tock of a man-made clock.
It’s a watch. It’s a clock
tick, tock, shock,
shockproof, waterproof,
digital, luminous.
Paradise is O.K. with a watch to measure the day…..
