I woke up and looked out of my window
Looking for the future Fifties promised
Lonely vigil, like an Army widow
Not so modern age, I'm just a tourist
I'm still waiting for my robot butler friend
Serving daily meals in a handy pill form
I'm still waiting for my super flying car
Starting to wonder if I have been misinformed
Which way to the Jetsons? I got baco-foil and balsa.
Give me space-directions, I will build a flying saucer,
Build a flying saucer for you.
Read the paper, Pluto's been downgraded
Bit by bit they've made the future feeble
Science fact has killed science creative
And replaced them with all these pod people
I'm still waiting for my shiny Teflon suit.
Where is ESP? When will the aliens arrive?
I'm still waiting for my super flying car -
Looking up above I'm only seeing empty skies
Which way to the Jetsons? I am starting to give in now.
Built a cardboard jetpack - should I jump out of the window,
Jump out of the window to you?
