"21st Century Life" as written by Samuel F Falson and Jesse Samuel Rogg....
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

21st century life, I got swept away
I got 21,000 things that I gotta 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, the Pope said
And just a few tiny words later somebody wants the man dead
What about famine and disease, well they said it's too bad, oops
Because I'm never alone, it's not just a phone, it's a stereo

21st century life, I got swept away
I got 21,000 things that I gotta 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

Now I'm not a little boy, I'm in the 21st century
Well, you might think we've come a really long way
But there's still no equality

I watched the news on my computer screen
Talking about buying my weed out of a vending machine
You tell me I'm free but how can it be
When you're always watching me on the CCTV

21st century life, I got swept away
I got 21,000 things that I gotta 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

21, 21, 21
I'm talking about 21, 21
