The Grandfather Clock

Oh, a grandfather clock just appeared in the hall
and it seems very strange to be sure

And a man has come out of the clock in the hall
and is stating some things quite obscure

He seems mildly deranged and a little bit insane
we can make out his words if we try
He says he's the master and we'll obey,
or we all shall die.

So we did as he said after one of us was dead
shrunken down to a tiny toy doll

And we wake up in fright to hear laughter at night
from the man in the clock in the hall

Oh we don't understand all the orders and commands
why he wants to be king in the sky
But he is the master and we'll obey,
or we all shall die

Now a wooden blue box has appeared in the hall
just across from the grandfather clock

And a man has come out of the box in the hall
and his clothes are a bit of a shock

He seems mildly deranged and a little bit insane
and he holds out a featherless hand
He says he's The Doctor and how are we
as he shakes my hand

Now the man in the clock has stepped into the hall
and is holding The Doctor by force

And they talk as we work, like old friends now estranged
as the project continues on course

They seem mildly deranged and a little bit insane
as they talk of strange worlds in the sky
but the master orders and we obey
or we all shall die

Now a darkness and cold has come into our hall
it seems things have gone terribly sour

for the man from the box and the man from the clock
are both trying to cut off the power

as the darkness creeps out they work hard to shut it out
all their differences now laid aside
how we wish they and their darkness would go away
as we try to hide

At the end of the fight day has won over night
and the master has run to his clock

and the man from the box gives a curse as it fades
and his hand passes right through the lock

He seems mildly deranged and a little bit insane
as he screams at the star studded sky
but he is The Doctor and we'll obey
or we all shall die

But he says we are free and returns to his box
and it fades from our now empty hall

And we sigh with relief and a bit of disbelief
as the last weeks events we recall

And we've put the word out sent our messengers about
no more grandfather clock chimes will ring
they've been chopped up never to run again
o'er a time Lord bring
