Verse 1

GMy grandfather's Dclock Was too lGarge for the Cshelf So it Gstood ninety Dyears on the fGloor It was taller by Dhalf than the the Gold man himCself Though it Gweighed not a Dpennyweights Gmore

Verse 2

It was Gbought on the morn Of the Cday that he was Gborn And was always his Apleasure and Dpride But it sGtopped Dshort GNever to go Cagain When the Gold Dman dGied

Verse 3

Ninety years without slumbering His life seconds numbering It stopped, short never to go again When the old man died

Verse 4

My grandfather said that of those he could hire Not a servant so faithful he found For it wasted no time and had but one desire At the close of each week to be wound

Verse 5

And it kept in its place, 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

Verse 6

It rang and alarmed 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

Verse 7

Still the clock kept the time with a soft and muffled chime As we silently stood by his side But it stopped short, never to go again When the old man died

Verse 8

Ninety years without slumbering His life seconds numbering It stopped short, never to go again When the old man died
