Ukraine has unveiled the new version of Maria Yaremchuk’s 2014 entry ‘Tick Tock’. The song was originally chosen way back in December 2013 and has undergone two incarnations before reaching the new version.

Originally an up-beat ethnic tinged dance song, ‘Tick Tock’ then became a Zlata Ognevich style ballad in Malta and has now become a jazz-tinged dance track. Maria channels her inner MJ in the video and the lyrics have been overhauled massively. The incestuous opening line about the love between a sister and brother is no more!

Tick Tock New Lyrics

I believe that I’ve loved you
Since the first time that I saw you
Bells rang angels sang
When the light of the night
fell on us we knew

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

We both knew that you were mine
Now cover me, I’ll buy us time, time

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh *2

Tick-tock, can you hear me go tick tock
My heart is like a clock, I’m steady like a rock
Sch don’t stop, kiss and kiss me till I drop
My heart is like a clock you wind it with your love

Tick-tock, can you hear me go tick tock
My heart is like a clock, I’m steady like a rock
Sch don’t stop, kiss and kiss me till I drop
My heart is like a clock, you wind it with your love.
(You wind and wind, it with your love)

Now I know it’s too hard to
go tick tock without the glimpse of you
If you cave in I break
I keep losing my pace
In this endless race

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

They all know that you’re mine
They can see we belong
Shelter me, you’ll do fine
Wait for me, I’ll buy us time

Tick-tock, can you hear me go tick tock
My heart is like a clock, I’m steady like a rock
Sch don’t stop, kiss and kiss me till I drop
My heart is like a clock, you wind it with your love

Tick-tock, can you hear me go tick tock
My heart is like a clock, I’m steady like a rock
Sch don’t stop, kiss and kiss me till I drop
My heart is like a clock, you wind it with your love.

When I listen to this song on headphones, there’s a distant sound in the chorus that sounds like a stomach rumbling. It’s very disturbing.

Wow, they made it really different AGAIN! haha. She’s still a really good singer – needs some more enunciation, but she sticks out just for her voice. The words, although much less cheesy, don’t really fit with the feel of the song. They’re at least trying to make it more respectable, which is a good thing. This will probably do very well, though. There aren’t that many strong Eastern European entries this year, and this should overtake pretty much all of them except Armenia, Romania, and Hungary (and who knows, Slovenia could come out of nowhere). Also, this reminds me… Read more »

I dig the new Serebro feel of the remake ……. Even tho I really liked the other version, I love this one even more.

P.S

The song is noting special but compared to the amount of uninspiring ballads with unnecessary gimmick I believe this one will just POP on stage.

there is an old saying “with all the spices added you can make edible food even from chicken poop”

Joanna

Thank god they changed the idiotic lyrics… But it’s still not a great song.

Eugene UK

Improvements all over, but lyrics still poor. Will be exposed by some quality ballads but should pick up sympathy points from every country I should imagine. It will be interesting to see how much that amasses to?

Keith

Can you make chicken soup out of chicken poop? Nope

Should a song with whistling do good? I hope not.

If Michael Jackson is the “King of Pop,” then Mariya Yaremchuk could be the “Duchess of Pop!”

I liked Tick Tock from the start. The ballad version was even better, and kept it in my top 5. This version? The best song in the competition, tied with Poland. I’m so glad for Maria, she has suck a beautiful voice, and the looks to match. She was just unfortunate nobody took to the song.

I’m glad to see that “tick tock-ticky ticky tock tock tock” line go away. It was so uninspired and I am liking this new version. Glad to see Ukraine polishing off their song to give us the best they can do

Zolan
Guest

oh well. Precisely as expected.
Revamped by committee to simulate quality without actually fixing anything.
Well … there’s less incest, so that’s something.

So is this a revamp or a whole new song? It sounds just like the old version but all the lirics have been changed. I actually preferred the first version.
Its still sucks

Peris, it’s clear you’re a fan from this song, but now stfu.

She’s actually very pretty. Wanna marry her.

And I don’t get used to the new lyrics…

I actually like it. The top 10 material here.

Robyn

I kind of miss the mad lyrics. I mean, how many pop songs have “inexhaustible” in their lyrics? 😉

This new version is ok, but I don’t think it’s a particularly strong song anyway. The lyrical changes and jazzy revamping can’t change the fact that the song is pretty weak at its heart.

Congratulations to Ukraine for working really hard on this song. They totally revamped it, as they do with their songs the last years and always have a good result (especially in 2011 and 2013 the revamped versions were excellent). They transformed a song with awful lyrics (tricky tricky tock tock tock, we belong to each other like a sister to a brother) to a classy jazz infected number. Good job Ukraine you were 32nd with the first version in my top, 27th with the second and now climbed to 23rd in a really strong year (at least for me)

YES! No more “we belong to each other like a sister to a brother”! haha
I’m very, very much pleased with this new version, I already loved the ukranian entry from the start, now it certainly is on my top 5.

Mex
Guest

Gosh, she’s sexy as hell!

I liked the entry that won in Ukraine, far more than the official one and the one in Malta.

Nevertheless, good luck Ukraine.

I love this new version and the original. I think she’ll get through to the final and top ten on her own merit. Eurovision is a great song contest of acceptance and tolerance. It has always had a political side ever since other countries didn’t like that Sweden had sung in English. What is happening in Ukraine with Russia should not influence your vote the song should, but that does not mean we are putting a blind eye to what is going on. Like with Azerbaijan in 2012, Russia ,Europe is watching you.

The original version made me sing uncontrollably especially at ” your love is inexhaustible” i could let myself go even though im shy 😛 so i thought it was good but then she came with the ballad version and i was disappointed and now this version is better than both but i must admit but i still prefer the origional xD
