Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

Words & Music:

Robert Lamm (Chicago)


D  Em7  F6  Em7  D  Em7  F6    Em7


G        F                BbM7          EbM7

As I was walking down the street one day,

  BbM7           EbM7            BbM7

A man came up to me and asked me what the time

EbM7           D  Em7  F6  Em7

That was on my watch--------, I said:



GM7                  C                      GM7                 C

"Does anybody really know what time it is?  Does anybody really care?

If so, I can't imagine why.  We've all got time enough to cry."


D  Em7  F6  Em7


As I was walking down the street one day,

A pretty lady looked at me & said her diamond watch

Had stopped cold dead.  I said:




As I was walking down the street one day,

Being pushed & shoved by people trying to beat the clock,

Oh, no, I just donŐt know-----  I said:




D  Em7  F6  Em7  D
