Night Owl in Winter

Time is getting away from me
Is it morning, is it night?
I dunno whether I’m coming or going

Once I wanted to abolish clocks
Where are my keys, Where are my socks?
I get rattled when anyone knocks.

Is it the groundskeeper or the grim reaper?

Missed on the hoedown and jamboree
Still Friday to me
The world has gone on without me!

Am I a slob? Still have a job? Wait a minute…
Getting darker, not lighter…Hoo! Right!
Now I do know day from night:
5 a.m. is dark; 5 p.m. is light!
