Camel – Metrognome lyrics

Time on your hands
You doodle the day
Shuffle your feet
And turn on the news
To hear what they might say

They've made a machine
A new fangled device
They're lighting the fuse
There's no need to worry
Your world will be alright

Time for a smoke
A pint and a joke
You muddle on through
Silently screaming
"What can I do?"

Till time trips you out
Larking about
Blows you away
High as a kite
On a windy day

Andrew Latimer Guitar
Peter Bardens Electric Piano, Organ, String Synthesizer
Richard Sinclair Bass, Vocals
Andy Ward Drums, Money, Percussion
Mel Collins Tenor Saxophone
