Nobody's perfect,
Not even a perfect stranger.
Oh, but what a gal,
She was such a perfect stranger.
And you're the best in your field,
In your office,
With your girls, desk and leather chair.
Thought that time was on your side,
Not, it's time the avenger.
Nobody is permanent,
Everything is on loan here.
Even your wife and kids,
Could be gone next year.
And with what you have left,
You'll be forever, under pressure to support her.
And a lover who looks strangely,
Like time the avenger.
Time, time hear the bells chime.
Over the harbor in the city,
Time, one more vodka and lime,
To help paralyze that little
Tick, tick tick tick ...
Nobody's perfect,
Not even a perfect gent.
When you properly took the A train,
I wonder where your manners were.
You were standing at the station,
In your briefcase was your aftershave and underwear.
Can you hear the whistle blow,
Sounds like time the avenger.
Time, time hear the bells chime.
Over the harbor in the city.
Time kill another bottle of wine,
To help paralyze that little
Tick, tick tick tick ...
