What a life what a life what a life what a life
Now all I'm hearing is tic tock tick tock ticky tock tic tock
A brother just pass me and ticking
And said he's much better off not working
And then the mad man on the corner start ticking
Can't get no overnight scraping
So dem a walking time bomb and ready to explore
Now dem a walking time bomb can't take the overload 

The organizers check say them clicking
So them palavering and drinking
Not realizing the boat is leaking
And any minute now it will be sinking 

Cause we a walking time bomb oh ya ready to explore
See we a walking time bomb the circuit overload
Who jealousy must go on as long as you think it's you alone
To eat off the pies and tell all your lies
But what a big surprise
When all the people start gathering
Communicating and saying the same thing
Too late before you realizing
That hadn't been for the reggae rhythm
Whole a we a walking time bomb oh ya
We're ready to explode and we a walking time bomb
Can't take the overload 

Say we a walking time bomb
We're ready to explode anytime
And we a walking time bomb
The circuit overload 

And all I'm hearing is a tic tock tic tock
A ticky tock tick tock again
Tick tock tick tock tick a ticky tick tock again
I said a brother just past me and ticking
Nothing na gwan in de juggling
Him a walking time bomb
Can't take the overload no 

A wonder what the government thinking
When them palavering and drinking
Not realizing the boat is leaking
And any minute now it will be sinking
Cause we a walking time bomb
We're ready to explode now
And we a walking time bomb
The circuit overload 

Jealousy must go on
As long as you think it's you alone
Eat off the pies
And tell all you lies
But what a big surprise
When everyone start gathering
Communicating and saying the same thing
Too late before you realizing
That hadn't been for the reggae rhythm
The whole a we a walking time bomb
We're ready to explode
And we a walking time bomb
The circuit overload now 

All I'm hearing is tick tack tick tack
Ticky tick tack tick tack tick tack
A ticky tick tack ticky tick tack again
