    Between my brand new laptop just brought in from the USA, my cell that auto adjusts for the current local time, but did not know about Mexican DST, my watch and the clock in my car, today I have no idea what time it really is.

    "Does anybody really know what time it is?" - Chicago 19??

    From the 1969 debut album Chicago Transit Authority

    Original Issue Columbia #GP-8, April 1969
    Rhino Records Re-issue Date: July 16, 2002
    Rhino Selection #76161

    As I was walking down the street one day
    A man came up to me and asked me what the time was that was
    on my watch, yeah
    And I said
    Does anybody really know what time it is
    I don't
    Does anybody really care
    care
    If so I can't imagine why
    about time
    We've all got time enough to cry
    Oh no, no

    And I was walking down the street one day
    A pretty lady looked at me and said her diamond watch had
    stopped cold dead
    And I said
    Does anybody really know what time it is
    I don't
    Does anybody really care
    care
    If so I can't imagine why
    about time
    We've all got time enough to cry
    Oh no, no

    And I was walking down the street one day
    Being pushed and shoved by people trying to beat the clock,
    oh, so I just don't know,
    I just don't know
    And I said, yes I said

    Background Vocal:
    People runnin' everywhere
    Don't know the way to go
    Don't know where I am
    Can't see past the next step
    Don't have to think past the last mile
    Have no time to look around
    Just run around, run around and think why

    Does anybody really know what time it is
    I don't
    Does anybody really care
    care
    If so I can't imagine why
    about time
    We've all got time enough to die
    Oh no, no

    I just came from a party where it was the Mexican equivalent of "Miller-time", except for me it was "time to blow this popsicle stand".

    Ani's got a song where she asks "excuse me, but do you know what time it would be if we were on Mars?". And the answer is "five in the morning".

    From the album Up Up Up Up Up Up
    Ani Difranco - Hat Shaped Hat - Lyrics:

    in walked a man in the shape of a man
    holding a hat-shaped hat
    he held up two fingers and said 'how many fingers?"
    and i said 'Peace man, that's where it's at"
    i said you are what you do in order to
    prevent becoming what you're busy not doing
    and if you do do it truly
    then you arrive at it newly
    then in the end you are absolved
    and the problem of heaven is solved

    and the man broke into a smile,
    like he was breaking into a song
    and he was broken and smiling
    and i was singing along
    and we agreed completely agreetly about most things
    'til the sun set sweetly
    like it does in those paintings
    the ones they hang in hotel rooms
    the ones they bolt to the wall
    as though anyone would want to steal them at all

    we talked like children without breathing
    'til i stopped this lady as she was leaving
    and i said 'excuse me,
    but do you know what time it would be
    if we were on mars ?'
    and she held up her hand
    like a crossing guard stopping the cars
    and she said
    five in the morning

    in walked a man
    in the shape of a man
    holding a hat shaped hat
