Lyrics

People come, people go
All the people I used to know
Some just yesterday and some long ago
People come and people go

There were people in school, they’re still kids in your mind
People at work clocking in time
You remember certain people and you know exactly why
You said goodbye and then you said hello

There are people whom I learned from
People whom I taught
People who sold me the things that I bought
Some of them were just passing to and fro
People come and people go

Tick tock the big clock don’t stop
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock

We’ll I’ve seen a million faces, and I’ve rocked one or two
Some said bonjour, some said adieu
Tell me your name, and I’ll remember you
Plant a seed and let it grow

Some people are players, some the referee
Some are actors you see on TV
Or they’re a voice on the radio
People come and people go

Tick tock the big clock don’t stop
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock (x2)

People come in on the highway
And they go, say “Bye bye” on the byway
Each one different from head to toe
All the people I used to know
Some just yesterday and some long ago
People come and people go
