Doctor WhoHurtling through time and space,
                                                     Can he ever find a place?
                                             Jumping forward to a brand new earth,
                                                Jumping back to an empty hearth.
                                             Forward again to see the Face of Boe,
                                                 Back in time to meet an old foe.
                                               He is pursued by an incessant fact,
                                              The likes of which he can't take back.
                                               His entire home, his people his soul,
                                               All gone, leaving him without a goal.
                                                   The last of the Time Wars,
                                                        The end of his kind,
                                                   He is trapped b

Tick Tock, Goes the clock, and what then shall we play?
Tick Tock, Goes the clock, now summer's gone away?

Tick Tock, Goes the clock, and what then shall we see?
Tick Tock, Until the day that thou shalt marry me.

Tick Tock, Goes the clock, and all the years they fly.
Tick Tock, And all too soon, you and I must die.

Tick Tock, Goes the clock, We laughed at fate and mourned her.
Tick Tock, Goes the clock, even for the Doctor.

Tick Tock, Goes the clock, he cradled and he rocked her.
Tick Tock, Goes the clock, 'Til River kills the Doctor.


Doctor, Brave and good, He turned away from violence,
When he understood the falling of the Silence.


Tick Tock, Goes the clock, He gave all he could give her.
Tick Tock, Goes the clock, Now prison waits for River.


Um... Anyways, I really love this song. Except it's really creepy. It's from Doctor Who, and I think it's called "Tick Tock Goes The Clock", but I'm not really sure... If you haven't heard this song, look it up, but not a night. It is REALLY creepy. A few nights ago I was listening to the Doctor Who series 6 soundtrack on shuffle and then the song "Tick Tock Round the Clock" started playing. It doesn't even have lyrics or creepy little evil children singing it, and it has happy instruments and extra little tunes in it so it sounds really joyful and happy, BUT IT LIES. I had to go on the computer and watch Yogscast videos for an hour before I could even close my eyes without that creepy song echoing in my head. I PUT THIS IN HORROR SONGS BECAUSE IT GIVES ME FREAKING NIGHTMARES.

Doctor Who belongs to BBC

Someone mentioned that this was based on a nursery rhyme... if so what's the title of it? I've been looking but I can't find it. But I do like this version of it, even if the version in Night Terrors is just that little bit more creepier than the others sung/ recited by adults.

What happened to

"Tick tock goes the clock
And all those years they fly
Tick tock goes the clock
Your love shall surely die"?

Was that ever part of the song or was that just Madame K. saying that just 'cause?

This is by far my favorite foreshadow in the entire show. Thanks for getting all the lyrics XD

I'll be sure to sing this to my future children >:3

I love this nursery rhyme, my nan used to sing it when I was quite young. I didn't know the meaning of it back then, which was probably 10 years ago, but it didn't stop me from loving it. I was very surprised when it was sang it in the episode 'Night Terrors', it fits in so well with series 6 as a whole.

It is bloody creepy. I just finished watching Night Terrors, the episode this song is in, for the second time, and I must say that the episode is creepy than I remember it being.
