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
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, 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 you 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
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)

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 with 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 with a modern girl)
(Gimme the future, gimme the future) oh, gimme the future with a modern girl
(Gimme the future, gimme the future) oh, 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
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
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

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 with 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 with a modern girl)
(Gimme the future, gimme the future) oh, gimme the future with a modern girl
(Gimme the future, gimme the future) oh, gimme the future with a modern girl
