21st century life – radio edit – sam sparro lyrics

when i was a little boy
living in the last century
i thought about living in the future
then it occurred to me
i turned around, the future was now
the future was all around me
nothing like i had imagined
it was totally confounding
hey-ohhh

21st century life
i got swept away
i got 21, 000 things that i got to do today
21st century life
well what can i say?
the new world’s got me feeling so dirty
think i need to get down and play

well now i turned on the tv just in time enough to hear what the pope said, pope said
and just a few tiny words later
somebody wants the man dead, oh
well what about famine and disease
well they said its too bad (oops)
because im never alone
its not just a phone
its a stereo
hey-ohhh

21st century life
i got swept away
i got 21, 000 things that i got to do today
21st century life
what can i say?
the new world’s got me feeling so dirty
think i need to get down and play

now im not a little boy
im in the 21st century
well you might think weve come a really long way, but theres still no equality
mmm hey hey
i watched the news on my computer screen
talkin’ ’bout buying my weed out of a vending machine
you tell me im free
well how can that be
when you’re always watching me on the cctv?

21st century life
i got swept away
i got 21, 000 things that i got to do today
21st century life
what can i say?
the new world’s got me feeling so dirty
think i need to get down and play
