If your watch didn't lie, you'd be on that 8:02.
By 9:00 you'd be in the client's office. By 10:00 he'd sign the contract. And by 12:15 your boss would give you a nice, fat raise.
But unfortunately, you don't have an Accutron® watch, guaranteed to tell the truth to within a minute a month.* 
So unfortunately, you're not on that 8:02.

RICHARD ADLER (Producer, Composer-Lyricist) collaborated with Jerry Ross on both the words and music of the prize-winning Damn Yankees and John Murray Anderson's Almanac. They worked together from 1950 until 1955 and turned out numerous hits. Adler and Ross won the Tony, Donaldson, and Variety Critics Award for their score of The Pajama Game, and Damn Yankees. Following the untimely death of Ross in 1955, Adler wrote the critically acclaimed score and lyrics for Kwamina, the first musical to delve into the birth pains of the new Africa of the '60s. A native New Yorker, Mr. Adler is the son of concert pianist Clarence Adler and a graduate of the University of North Carolina. At Chapel Hill he studied playwriting under Paul Green and worked with the noted Carolina Playmakers. In World War II he served as a Naval officer in the South Pacific.

He was White House COnsultant in the Arts 1966-68 and is a Trustee for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. 

Jerry Ross (Composer-Lyricist) collaborated with Richard Adler on the scores of Damn Yankees, and John Murray Anderson's Almanac. Mr. Ross pursued his musical studies at New York University, then spent many seasons at summer resorts doing the songs for their productions. It was at one of these places that he met Eddie Fisher, who introduced him to his publisher and helped further him professionally. Mr. Ross died in 1955 after five years of brilliant success as a composer and lyricist. As a song-writing team, Adler and Ross were unique. In all combinations of the sort one partner writes the music, the other the lyrics. But in this instance both composed the music and both created the lyrics.
