Tick, Tick, Tick Lyric by Ralph Blane
Music by Harry Warren

Extended movie version:

Verse:

Oh, give me your attention,
There's been a new invention;
It isn't any larger than an adding machine.
It's only fair to mention,
Though it's a new invention,
It's one that you have heard about, but few have ever seen.
It doesn't do division and it doesn't multiply,
It doesn't try to be a bird, it doesn't try to fly'
It came about because they made a big atomic bomb.
The new invention's clicking
And because of all its ticking,
I know where the idea came from;

Chorus 1:

I tick, tick, tick,
Why do I tick, tick?
What amazing trick
Makes me tick, tick, tick?
I tick, tick, tick,
An electric tick
When I feel a realistic tick.
You're such an attractive hick,
Give me a radioactive kick,
It's distractive the way you stick,
But love, love makes me tick.
I tick, tick, tick,
And my heart beats quick;
How can anything go wrong?
When I'm list'nin' to that Geiger Counter song,
I tick, tick all day long.

Chorus 2:

I tick, tick, tick,
Why do I tick, tick?
What amazing trick
Makes me tick, tick, tick, tick, tick?
I tick, tick, tick,
An electric tick
When I feel a realistic tick.
The butcher and the baker ticks,
So does the maker of the candlesticks;
Lawyers have their politics,
But love, love makes 'em tick.
So, tick, tick, tick,
Let your heart tick, tick,
How can anything go wrong?
If you're list'nin' to that Geiger Counter song,
You'll tick, tick all day long.

Half chorus:

Like the butcher and the baker ticks,
Like the candlestick maker ticks,
Like the doctor and the lawyer ticks,
Even though he's messed up in his politics;
Like the merchant and the Indian chief tick, ticks,
Like the poor, like rich man tick, tick, ticks,
Diggin' a ditch man,
The butter and egg man,
The poor wooden leg man,
The beggar and feet!
All find out
What it's all about,
When it's love you can't go wrong,
You better listen to that Geiger Counter song,
And tick, tick all day long.
Tick, tick, tick, tick,
Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick,
Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick,
Tick.
