now i'm no machine
but i can work when i choose
There's a terrible strength in those tightly wound springs.
And a gentleman's pocketwatch stays by his heart,
And that's where the damage can start.
Now I'm no machine but I can work when I choose,
With hands good as any when I've something to prove.
So I stayed up all night among cogs, springs and screws,
And I didn't stop till I was through.
I rigged up a watch to do more than just chime ,
And I didn't baulk once at the depth of my crime -
A most perfect invention that still kept impeccable time.
The next week a young man stopped by in the shop,
Took a shine to a timepiece and paid on the spot.
He wound it, and wore it, and at 6 on the dot
He came to a messy and permanent stop.
