One hour forward, one hour back,
Oh what a waste of time,
G.M., B.S. and back again,
It's quite a pantomime.
An hour less at work, for some,
And then, an hour more,
The time it takes to change each clock
Is really quite a chore.
Up north they say it gets too dark
As weans go off to school,
So back one hour the clocks do go
Like a regimental rule.
But one solution is at hand
That I suggest we do,
Just change the clock by one half hour
And keep that all year through.
