cuckoo clock lyrics – beach boys

we knew it must have been late
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
we had no time to wait
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
i went to light the fireplace
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
i planned it all this way
and
(tick-tock
tick-tock)

i snuggled close to her
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
her heart began to purr
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
i held my breath inside
and then
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
i put my arms around her
(tick-tock)

cuckoo
cuckoo (go away silly bird)
cuckoo
cuckoo (go away silly bird)
cuckoo
cuckoo (go away silly bird)
cuckoo
cuckoo

i put that birdie away
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
his cuckoo was gone to stay
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
we both apologized for why
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
forgave that doggone cuckoo

i went back to her side
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
i had to swallow my pride
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
the fire had almost died away
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
we just got situated
(tick-tock)

cuckoo
cuckoo (go away silly bird)
cuckoo
cuckoo (go away silly bird)
cuckoo
cuckoo (go away silly bird)
cuckoo
cuckoo

i took that clock apart
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
i broke the cuckoo’s heart
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
he’ll never bother us again
(tick-tock
tick-tock)
we just forgot about him
(tick-tock)

cuckoo
cuckoo (go away silly bird)
cuckoo
cuckoo (go away silly bird)
cuckoo
cuckoo (go away silly bird)
cuckoo
cuckoo
