"Welcome to the Future" as written by and Brad Paisley Charles Christopher Dubois....
When I was ten years old
I remember thinking how cool it would be
When we were going on a eight hour drive
If I could just watch TV
And I'd have given anything
To have my own Pac-Man game at home
I used to have to get a ride down to the arcade
Now I've got it on my phone

Heeeeey
Glory, glory, hallelujah
Welcome to the future

My grandpa was in World War II
He fought against the Japanese
He wrote a hundred letters to my grandma
Mailed em from his base in the Philippines
I wish they could see this now
The world they saved has changed, you know
Cause I was on a video chat this morning
With a company in Tokyo

Heeeeey
Every day's a revolution
Welcome to the future

Heeeeey
Look around its all so clear
Heeeeey
Wherever we were going, well, we're here
Heeeeey
So many things I never thought I'd see
Happening right in front of me

I had a friend in school
Running back on the football team
They burned a cross in his front yard
For asking out the homecoming queen
I thought about him today
And everybody who's seen what he's seen
From a woman on a bus
To a man with a dream

Heeeeey
Wake up Martin Luther
Welcome to the future

Heeeeey
Glory, glory, hallelujah
Welcome to the future
