Underneath a big clock at the corner of 5th Avenue and 22nd Street I stood and waited for a girl I knew at the spot where we agreed to meet It was four minutes of two

At four of two, I stood waiting for the girl I was four minutes early for the date we had planned I was planning to say I was in love with her Just as soon as she showed for a two o'clock date And the clock said four of two

At four of two, I was staring into space She was not yet late, according to the clock I was feeling nervous so I kept looking up At the clock sticking out of the side of the building And it still said four of two

At four of two, I began to feel tired And I rubbed my eyes, and again I checked the time It seemed as if the sky was growing dark... But I felt reassured when I looked at the clock And it still said four of two

I lay my head down on the sidewalk so in case she were coming I would have a better view But no one was there so I stretched out and closed my eyes for a second or two It was four minutes of two

At once I awoke to a futuristic world There were flying cars and gigantic metal bugs I'd grown a beard; it was long and white But I knew that the girl would be coming very soon For though everything had changed, there was still that clock And it still said four of two
