The Lyrics

Every year about this time
When there's spring in the air
We have to go and grab our clocks
Each timepiece there..
The government decides the way
Our time should be set
The hours, minutes, seconds haven't
Got freedom yet...

Spring ahead and Fall back,
Spring ahead and Fall back,
Spring ahead and Fall back,
Do it daddy, go and set your clocks
Crazy, us, they're drivin'
With this silly jivin'
Do it daddy, go and set your clocks

Back in the day it used to be a simple chore
But with high tech, it really ain't no more
With digitals and car clocks,
We forget where there all at..
Why is it called saving time
When we do all of that?

Spring ahead and Fall back,
Spring ahead and Fall back,
Spring ahead and Fall back,
Do it daddy, go and set your clocks

(Clock setting instrumental interlude)

Spring ahead and Fall back,
Spring ahead and Fall back,
Spring ahead and Fall back,
Do it daddy, go and set your clocks

Nice one. Me, I don't do DST. My clocks stay the same year-round.

Thanks, Porfle...you mean just calculate everything an hour later or sooner?
Porfle Popnecker - March 12, 2012 - Report this comment
Yeah, and since I don't get any TV reception or cable, time is irrelevant while I'm at home. All I have to calculate are things that take place in the rest of the world.

Gettin' back to nature, eh? You're not Grizzly Adams, are ya?....Well, at least I know you have to have electricity and a computer...

Well, the no-cable thing is to save money--I still watch my DVDs all the time. Mainly, I'm against DST because I like for it to get dark when it's supposed to. Broad daylight at 9:00 p.m. and beyond just ain't right.
