Modern Girl

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

Somewhere just between the past
and somethin' dawnin' new
There's a break in the chain
there's 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 ya 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

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 WHITH 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 WHITH 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

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
