lyrics

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.

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

Strap on your headgear. 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.

And the 20th century is sneaking up behind
Gentle men, 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.

And the 21st century is still a long ways away
Gentlemen, I may have changed my mind again,
Our future is under the waves...
