Oh, Tico Tico, Tick
Oh, Tico Tico, Tock
This Tico Tico, he's the cuckoo in my clock.
and when he says "cuckoo",
he means it's time to woo,
it's Tico-time for all the lovers on the block.
I''v got a heavy date,
A tete-a-tete at eight,
So speak, oh Tico, tell me if it's getting late!
If I'm on time, cuckoo,
but if I'm late I, woo-woo!
the one my heart is gone to may not want to wait!
For just a birdie, and a birdie who goes nowhere,
he knows of every lover's lane and how to go there;
for in affairs of the heart
my Tico's terribly smart,
he tells me: "Gently, sentiment'ly at the start!"
Oh, Oh, I hear my little Tico Tico calling
because the time is right and shades of night are falling.
I love that not-so-cuckoo cuckoo in the clock,
Tico Tico Tico Tico Tico Tock!
