In the year twentyfive
Twentyfive if man is still alive
If woman can survive they may find.
In the year thirtyfive thirtyfive
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth tell no lies
Ev'rything you think do and say is in the pill you took today.
In the year fortyfive fortyfive
You ain't gonna need your teeth won't need your eyes
You won't find a thing to chew
Nobody's gonna look at you.
In the year fiftyfive fiftyfive your arms are hangin' limp at you side
Your legs got nothin' to do
Some machines doin' that for you.
In the year sixtyfive sixtyfive
Ain't gonna need no husband won't need no wife
You'll pick your son
Pick your daughter too
From the bottom of a long glass tube.
In the year seventyfiveten
If God's a-coming he oughta make it by then
Maybe he'll look around himself and say:
Guess it's time for the judgement day.
In the year eightyfiveten God is gonna shake his mighty head
He'll either say I'm pleased where man has been
Or tear it down and start again.
In the year ninetyfive ninetyfive
I'm kind a wond'rin' if man is gonna be alive
He's taken everything this old earth can give
And he ain't put back nothin'.
Now it's been tenthousand years
Man has cried a billion tears
For what he never knew - now man's reign is through.
But through eternal night the twinkling of starlight
So very far away - maybe it's only yesterday.
In the year twentyfive twentyfive if man is still alive
In the year thirtyfive thirtyfive . . .
