Sam Sparro 21st Century Life Lyrics

Last updated: 05/15/2012 11:00:00 AM

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
Hey-ohhh

21st century life
I got swept away
I got 21,000 things that I got to 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, Pope said
And just a few tiny words later
Somebody wants the man dead, oh
Well what about famine and disease
Well they said its too bad (oops)
Because Im never alone
Its not just a phone
Its a stereo
Hey-ohhh

21st century life
I got swept away
I got 21,000 things that I got to do today
21st century life
What can I say?
The new world's got me feeling so dirty
Think I need to get down and play

Now Im not a little boy
Im in the 21st century
Well you might think weve come a really long way, but theres still no equality
Mmm hey hey
I watched the news on my computer screen
Talkin' 'bout buying my weed out of a vending machine
You tell me Im free
Well how can that be
When you're always watching me on the CCTV?

21st century life
I got swept away
I got 21,000 things that I got to do today
21st century life
What can I say?
The new world's got me feeling so dirty
Think I need to get down and play
