Lyrics

Clockwork Thief - words and music: eddie lee

He’s losing his hair, losing his teeth. Time’s stealing bits
Like a clockwork thief . It’s a drag man, gettin’ old.
Lost his house, he’s losing his kids his twenty-something lover’s gone
His life’s on the skids. It’s a drag man, gettin’ old

But it comes to us all, sure life is a ball but it ends, man
It’s all done in a flash and you can’t get it back coz’ it’s gone

Lost his job and though he’s looking hard the competition’s younger
So he won’t get far. It’s a drag man, gettin’ old.
Lost his shape so he lives at the gym. He likes to go clubbing
But they won’t let him in. It’s a drag man, gettin’ old

But it comes to us all, sure life is a ball but it ends, man
It’s all done in a flash and you can’t get it back coz’ it’s gone

Lost his chance to have a good old age. He’s filled with fear
And he’s filled with rage. It’s a drag man, gettin’ old.
So always remember go out in the sun coz the years won’t hurt you
If you’re feeling young. But it’s a drag man, gettin’ old
4
But it comes to us all, sure life it’s a ball but it ends, man
It’s all done in a flash and you can’t get it back coz’ it’s gone

Yes, it’s gone, yes, it’s gone
Say bye-bye baby, the bird has flown
The horse has bolted, the river’s run dry
Bye-bye, bye-bye, it’s gone
