Take Your Time (by Loudon Wainwright III) 1. You first wound my clock up on our wedding day You said it would always be striking Though the spring's getting weaker and feeble the tick It's still very much to me liking. Chorus So take your time, me lovely old lad There ain't no reason to hurry For as long as you're able to wind up me clock Then I have no reason to worry. 2. I mind the time when we were young You worked at the hedging and binding You'd go out at dawn and come home through the dusk Coming home for me clock to be winding. 3. As time went by, our children grew up Were soon making wedding vows binding And all of my daughters the same thing I taught Make sure your clock always needs winding. 4. And now that we're nearing the end of our time And you are so tired and grey, love It still pleases me when you wind up me clock And it will till the end of my days, love. JB
