Can You Tell Time

from the album

Can you tell time?
I’ll bet you can
with a little time
you will understand
it’s in your hands
little hands
holding hands
with those hands
now let’s tell time

6:45
is a quarter till
7 o'clock
are you with me still?
and half past 9's
a good time
write some lines
make some rhymes
yeah, it’s sublime

time is all around us on wrist-watches and clock towers
the big hand points to minutes the small hand points to the hours

planets turn around the sun it takes a little time
the glow of distant stars arrives light-years far behind

Can you tell time?
can you tell time?
well I sure can
I’ll bet you can
with a little time
with a little time
you willl understand
you will understand
it's in your hands

can you tell time?
