First time I ran around the clock backwards, Fell down, dripped blood from my knees, My hands glowing red, the hands pulling forward, Tick tock, tick tock.

Little mouse, run your marathon up the clock, Little mouse, help me out, Don't run down, and away, Little mouse, stay here.

Let my blood drip from your slow moving hand, Your speedy second hand works with the first, Tick tock bleed down the clock, My little white mouse, stained with my burden.

Don't cast your shadow of time down upon me tonight, It's closer now, the wait is almost over.

Hickory. Hickory. Hickory. My weight is on your shoulders. Hickory. Hickory. Hickory. The wait is on your shoulders. Hickory.

First time I ran around the clock backwards, Fell down, dripped blood from my knees, My hands glowing red, the hands pulling forward, Tick tock, tick tock.

Oh no, it's one o'clock, Cast your shadow back to the floor, Tick tock, Back down you go.

Let my blood drip from your slow moving hand, Your speedy second hand works with the first, Tick tock bleed down the clock, My little white mouse, stained with my burden.

Hickory..
