lyrics

Our Future is in the Sky

I dreamed last night that I could fly
When I woke up this morning there were blueprints by my bedside
For a strange machine powered by steam
Now I’m up here on the roof of my house
Making some wings from my wife’s old blouse

The 19th century is passing us by
Gentlemen oh no, please don’t settle in
Our future is in the sky

Strap on your head gear, the epitome of austere
Hop right into my flying machine and we’ll chart the new frontier
Cities in the clouds, castles tall and proud
And if we survive the take off imagine the response from the crowd

The20th century is sneaking up behind
Gentlemen oh no, please don’t settle in
Our future is in the sky

Again I apologize; I’d never try to take your life
Clearly there were flaws in my flying machine design
But the past is history, my friend you and me
We’ll depart tomorrow morning for a journey under the sea

The21th century is still a long ways away
Gentlemen I may have changed my mind again
Our future is under the waves
