Grandfather Clock

Will today's children recognize "tick-toc"
Will they even associate it with clocks
Now that everything's electric

I still remember the sound of the chime
Telling all of my grandfather's house the time
And how his clock would tick

But now I go back to visit and find
That old clock sits in need of a wind
But no one takes the time

So silent in the corner it stands
Holding up it's motionless hands
A relic of days gone by
