Tick is a cliché sound

God will give, God will take.

Tick-tock

And how noble is man?

Toiling all his years?

Tick-tock

And what is Man?

Progression of his time.

Il faut tenter ce vivre

Click-clock.

Toiling at five, toiling at seventy,

Toiling through in all eternity,

And the most you can do is carry on.

Tick-tock

Et le vent s’est tombe’ toujours

Tick-tock,

And we are done.
