In the Year 2525

In the Year 2525
(Zager & Evans)

 In the year twenty five, twenty five
 If man is still alive
 If woman can survive they may find

 In the year thirty five thirty five
 Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
 Ev'ry thing you think, do or say,
 Is in the pill you took today

 In the year forty five, forty five
 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 fifty five, fifty five
 Your arms are hangin' limp at your side
 Your legs got nothin' to do
 Some machine's doin' that for you

 In the year sixty five sixty hve
 You won't 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 seventy five ten
 If God's a comin', he oughta' make it by then
 May be he'll look around himself and say
 Guess it's time for the judgement day,

 In the year eighty five ten
 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 ninety five ninety five
 I'm kinda wonderin' if man is gonna be alive
 He's taken ev'ry thing this old earth can give
 And he ain't put back nothin

 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 eternal night
 The twinking of starlight
 So very far away
 Maybe it's only yesterday
