Meet a boy named Phil and his family
On vacation from the 22nd century
They got a rented time-machine and they're on their way
To a time, way, way, way back in the day

So now he's Phil, Phil of the future
Keeping it together just as best as he can
Phil, Phil of the future, he's a 22nd century man
A 22nd century man

On a holiday through history
But the final destination was a mystery
But something on the time-machine had blown
So they ended up right here in our time zone

So now he's Phil, Phil of the future
Never knew in history just where he would land
Phil, Phil of the future, he's a 22nd century man
A 22nd century man
