Lyrics

[Chorus 1]

In the year 2525

If man is still alive

If woman can survive

They may find-

[Chorus 2]

In the year 3535

Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies

Everything you think, do, and say

Is in the pill you took today

[Chorus 3]

In the year 4545

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

[Chorus 4]

In the year 5555

Your arms are hanging limp at your side

You legs got nothing to do

Some machine's doing that for you

[Chorus 5]

In the year 6565

Ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife

You'll pick your sons, pick your daughters too

From the bottom of a long glass tube

Whoa-oh-oh

[Chorus 6]

In the year 7510

If God's a-coming, he ought to make it by then

Maybe he'll look around himself and say

“Guess it's time for the judgement day!”

[Chorus 7]

In the year 8510

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

Whoa-oh-oh

[Chorus 8]

In the year 9595

I'm kinda wondering, if man is gonna be alive

He's taken everything this old Earth can give

And he ain't put back nothing

Whoa-oh-oh

[Bridge]

Now it's been ten thousand years

Man has cried a billion tears

For what he never knew

Now man's reign is through

But through the eternal night

The twinkling of starlight

So very far away

Maybe it's only yesterday

[Chorus 1]

In the year 2525

If man is still alive

If woman can survive

They may find

[Chorus 2]

In the year 3535

Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies ...[1]
