In the year 2525
If man is still alive   
If woman can survive      
They may find........         

 In the year 3535        
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies              
Everything you think, do, or say                  
Is in the pill you took today                   

           In the year 4545                  
Ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes                       
You won't find a thing to chew                         
Nobody's gonna look at you                          

In the year 5555                    
Your arms are hanging limp at your sides                        
Your legs got nothing to do                        
Some machine, doing that for you                       

In the year 6565                
Ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife                  
You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too                 
From the bottom of a long glass tube              

In the year 7510      
If God's a comin' he ought to make it by then    
Maybe he'll look around himself and say 
``Guess it's time for the Judgement day''

In the year 8510
God's gonna shake his mighty head
He'll either say ``I'm pleased where man has been''
Or tear it down and start again

      In the year 9595
      I'm kinda wondering if man's gonna be alive
      He's taken everything this old earth can give
      And he ain't put back nothing...

          Now it's been 10,000 years
          Man has cried a billion tears
          For what he never knew
          Now man's reign is through
          But through the eternal night
          The twinkling of starlight
          So very far away
          Maybe it's only yesterday...

              In the year 2525
              If man is still alive
              If woman can survive
              They may find.......
