Hey Baby It's Time to wake up!

Time to Wake Up!
My favorite clock is by far the clock I have come to call "The Hey Baby Clock" and for ten years I have yet to find a clock that is as ingenious, adorable and as durable as the "Hey Baby".
It was really by sheer chance how I landed my clock. When I was younger-my mother, brothers and I were walking through the mall and we came upon an adult novelty store which my mother didn't approve us going into. But in the front of the store sat a sale table and on the table was the clock.
We would have never known what the alarm sounding was like if my younger brother wasn't as ADD as he was. Needless to say, we all loved it!
When we went to check out, my mother realized she had left the checkbook in the car and when we came back the clock was gone! We tirelessly searched for months to find the clock, but to no avail.
Then one day, we just happened upon it at a linens store and since then I have not let go of it.
The clock itself looks somewhat like a child's clock. It is of a chicken, wearing black sunglasses and holding a blue guitar and within the body of the guitar is an actual clock.
But, its appearance wasn't what made me fall in love, it was the alarm. Every morning for the past ten years I have been awakened by the sound of my "Hey Baby" clock. It has yet to get old to me.
I still smile when my alarm goes off...and that in itself is a miracle. The clocks' alarm is a song and having owned the clock for ten years I could most likely sing it backwards. The alarm the clock sings is as follows:
"Hey baby, its time to wake up, come and dance with me, come and dance with me."
The beak of the chicken even moves as if it were singing along with the song. It's a happy, light and cherry alarm to wake up to and it sure beats the monotonous noise of regular alarm clocks.
Not only is it just an awesome clock but it has lasted for years. I LOVE my clock, it's great. I've bought at least five by now for nieces and nephews and as birthday gifts for my friend's children.
It's really appropriate for any age and to be honest I don't think I could wake up without it.
