Ukraine: Maria Slays in Tick Tock Revamp

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.
