The hives - introduce the metric system in time by The Hives
Been trying for all my life but I can't add up your subtraction.
Work, eat, play then go to sleep that won't get me no satisfaction.
Gotta find a way out, yeah a way out of this mess.
So sick of trying to make my time last and ending up with less.
I know your way of doing things and it has lost it's attraction.
Why settle for twenty-four when I can have a hundred fractions.
Who knew I'd be the one pulling off the perfect crime.
So here's my new line I'll change your mind and the metric system to time.
Caused trouble all over town and it's bound to start a reaction.
Metric time will come around it's gonna overtake your contraction I've found a way out yeah a way out of this stress.
I made my time last and it's total success.
Got my way of doing things and it's bound to gain your attraction.
A hundred hours is my supply it's gonna give us all satisfaction.
No doubt I'd be the one pulling off the perfect crime.
So here's my new line I'll change my mind and the metric system to time.
