"In The Year 2525" as written by and Richard Lee Evans....
In the year of 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find

In the year of 3535
Can't tell the truth, can't tell no lie
Everything you think, do and say
Is in the pill you took today

In the year of 4545
Won't need no teeth, won't need your eyes
Won't find a thing to do
Nobody's gonna look at you

In the year of 5555
Your arms are hanging limp at your side
Your legs have nothing to do
Some machines doin' that for you

In the year of 6565
Won't 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 woo

In the year of 7510
If God is comin' he should make it by then
Maybe he'll look around and say:
"Now it's time for the judgement day!"

In the year of 8510
God is gonna shake his mighty hand
He'll leave a salient place where man has been
Or tear it down and start again wouwo

In the year of 9595
I'm wondering if man is gonna be alive
He's taken everything earth had to give
And he's put back nothing woo

Now it's been ten thousand years man has cried a million tears
For what he never knew now man's dream is through
But through eternal light the twinklin' of starlight
So very far away now it's night to yesterday

    General CommentIf I remember, this song came out in the late 60s, done by Sager & Evans. It was a catchy, slightly scary song if you thought about the lyrics.

    One funny lyric is: Man has cried a billion tears.

    Sounds like a lot, huh. With a current world population nearing 7 billion, that's one tear for every 7 people, not counting those yet to be born. Guess they couldn't work in "Man has cried 900 octillion tears" (900,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000).

    General CommentThis song is amazing considering they wrote this in the 60's by Zager & Evans.
    I heard this song once - I'm fairly young and fell in love with it - with the technology this Earth has I wouldn't be surprised - I guess we'll have to wait until the year 2525.
