Grandfather's Clock Lyrics

My grandfather's clock was too large for the shelf

So it stood ninety years on the floor

It was taller by half than the old man himself

And it weight not a penny's weight more

It was bought on the morn that my grandpa was born

And was always his treasure and pride

But it stopped short never to go again

When the old man died

Ninety years without slumbering (tic tac tic tac)

His life's seconds numbering (tic tac tic tac)

But it stopped short never to go again

When the old man died.

At watching its pendulum swing to and fro

Many hours he had spent as a boy

As he grew into manhood the clock seemed to know

For it sharaed everyu sorrow and joy

And it struck tewntyfour as he entered the door

With his beautiful and blushing bride

But it stopped short never to go again

When the old man died

My grandfather said that of those he could hire

Not a servant so faithful he'd found

For it wasted no time and it had but one desire

At the close of each week to be wound

Yes it kept in its place but not a frown upon its face

And its hands never hung by its side

But it stopped short never to go again

When the old man died

Then it rang an alarm in the dead of the night

An alarm that for years had been dumb

And we knew that his spirit was pluming for flight

That his hour for departure had come

Yes the clock kept the time

With a soft and muffled chime

As we stood there and watched by his side

But it stopped short never to go again

When the old man died
