My Little Clock

From the album In The Hospital Buy Now

- asking for respect when we feel powerless

MY LITTLE CLOCK

You’ve got a big clock                    

I’ve got a little clock too                 

Your clock’s for your time               

Your big clock pushes you               

When you’re in a hurry

My little clock’s pushed aside

Y’make me use your clock

Y’don’t care about my clock’s size

 

When your clock is ticking                

Then everything changes                  

You haven’t got time to explain        

I have to use your time                   

You push me and pull me                

And it never enters your brain, that   

 

You’ve got a big clock

I’ve got a little clock too

My clock’s for my time

Your clock’s time is up to you

Your clock’s important

It’s bigger, it makes more noise

But my clock’s important

Though you think it’s just a toy

 

You’re only trying

To help me feel better

At least that’s what you say

But I feel angry

I don’t feel better

When m’little clock’s treated this way, ohhh,

 

You’ve got a big clock

I’ve got a little clock too

I listen to your clock

Please listen to m’little clock too

 

I’ve only got a little time              

Do you have a little time?            

A little time on your big clock?     

That’s all that I want from you.
