The Lyrics

Barry J. Mitchel just used this title to a different base song. Word to the wise: Don't give Mike any ideas... Keep in mind, in this case, the word "queer" has its original meaning, "odd," not "homosexual."
(instrumental opening)

There's a man who leads a life of danger.
With every 6 months gone, he's no clock-changer.
With every half a year
he thinks the time is queer.
Odds are, he'll be late for work tomorrow.

Daylight Savings Time!
Daylight Savings Time!
Just fix all your clocks' numbers.
It's taking away your shame!

Beware analog faces on your clock.
And digital ones could give you a shock.
Aw, be careful what they say:
You got up late today.
Odds are, you'll be late for work tomorrow.

Daylight Savings Time!
Daylight Savings Time!
Just fix all your clocks' numbers.
It's taking away your shame!

(instrumental break)

Daylight Savings Time!
Daylight Savings Time!
Just fix all your clocks' numbers.
It's taking away your shame!

Gettin' places too early, October.
And then on Saturday in March, should have stayed sober!
Aw, no, you let an hour slip.
You're too late for your trip.
The odds are, you'll be late for work tomorrow.

Daylight Savings Time!
Daylight Savings Time!
Just fix all your clocks' numbers.
It's taking away your shame!

Daylight Savings Time!

Michael - Very enjoyable job. Being hopelessly low tech, the worst thing about E.D.T for me is having to change my sun dial! ;D

About time someone wrote one about time..

Just as we were getting some daylight to wake up with in the morning, we go back to waking up in the dark. Millions of sleep-deprived drivers out in the dark on a Monday morning. Whose brilliant idea was that? Nicely paced and funny. "Odds are you'll be late for work tomorrow" is a good one.
