The Lyrics

This time of the year drives me insane
And we're losing an hour - or is it a gain
As the clocks are put forward, or back - please explain
Why we need to have daylight saving
And hopefully this time I won't miss the plane
As the clocks they are a-changing

I'm going to fly to the US of A
The fiftieth state - Hawaii - Hooray
If I leave here tomorrow, I'll get there today
Now isn't that truly amazing?
And when I come back I will lose a whole day
For the time-zones are a-changing

If I were to travel at the speed of light
And spend at light-speed a day and a night
A whole million years might pass in my flight
Now surely THAT needs some explaining
A certain uncertainty - was Einstein right?
For Time it is dilating

Come Old Father Time, and please help me out
And tell me just what is this song all about
I thought that I knew it, but now I'm in doubt
And in what time we have remaining
Yes I know, Father Time, that you can work it out
For Time it is a-changing

And that didn't even take into account the international date line

i think i might still not quite be over the 6 hour time change from spain to the US hence the relative lack of parody production from me

As someone who suffers from the nuisance of mis-matched time zones, I can appreciate this one...
