"Modern Girl" as written by Sarah B Durkee and Paul Ross Jacobs....
Once a beautiful Miss America married Mr. Right
Had a little baby girl, born on a stormy night
But that was once upon a time, now it's a brand new world

Gimme the future, gimme the future, gimme the future with a modern girl
Gimme the future, gimme the future, gimme the future with a modern girl
Somewhere just between the past and somethin' dawnin' new

There's a break in the chain, a skip in the clock
Girl that's where I'm gonna find you
Between the boy I was before and what I'm gonna be
There's a clash on the border, a flame in the sky
Girl that's where you're gonna find me

Can't you hear the planet groanin' like a broken down machine
Rusted with the guilty tears of fallen kings and queens
But you and I stand innocent, baby it's a brand new world
Gimme the future, gimme the future, gimme the future with a modern girl
Gimme the future, gimme the future, gimme the future with a modern girl
(Gimme the future, gimme the future, gimme the future with a modern girl)

We're the son and the daughter on a new freeway
(Gimme the future, gimme the future)
Laughin' while the road maps blow away
(Gimme the future with a modern girl)
We're the son and the daughter and we ain't afraid

(Gimme the future, gimme the future)
Won't be makin' the mistakes our fathers made
(Gimme the future with a modern girl)
(Gimme the future, gimme the future) oh, gimme the future with a modern girl
(Gimme the future, gimme the future) oh, gimme the future with a modern girl

Once a beautiful Miss America married Mr. Right
Had a little baby boy, born on a stormy night
But that was once upon a time, now it's a brand new world

Gimme the future, gimme the future, gimme the future with a modern girl
Gimme the future, gimme the future, gimme the future with a modern girl
Gimme the future, gimme the future, gimme the future with a modern girl
Gimme the future, gimme the future, gimme the future with a modern girl
Gimme the future, gimme the future, gimme the future with a modern girl

We're the son and the daughter on a new freeway
(Gimme the future, gimme the future)
Laughin' while the road maps blow away
(Gimme the future with a modern girl)
We're the son and the daughter and we ain't afraid
(Gimme the future, gimme the future)
Won't be makin' the mistakes our fathers made
(Gimme the future with a modern girl)
(Gimme the future, gimme the future) oh, gimme the future with a modern girl
(Gimme the future, gimme the future) oh, gimme the future with a modern girl

    General CommentCan it be possible to say that Meat Loaf actually restrained himself musically? Here, he did, and the song suffers for it. I think the eclectic tempo and good lyrics (the third stanza is genius) could have made for a "Bat Outta Hell" style rock anthem. But for some reason, he cut himself short and was content to repeat the refrain 60 bzillion times. Oh well...

    General Commentwell it'd be pretty boring if all artists used the same style every time. This is a good one!
