MILLENNIUM MAN

It was sixty-seven when I joined this world
But my daddy was gone before my toes unfurled
He left one morning and he never returned
It was supposed to be the summer of love



Five whole years of non-event
One more birthday came and went
No call received and no message sent
I suppose it was the year of the rat



Now it’s a glamorous world for millennium man
With a professional wife and a growing clan
It’s an amorous life for the modern guy
But sometimes I could cry



Still I made it to high school on the brink of teens
My first sweetheart and my first blue jeans
But I never lived my schoolyard dreams
It was the winter of discontent



In eighty-five I fled the nest
When you’re eighteen years you know the best
I was earning small and I was eating less
It was the year when they were feeding the world



Now it’s a glamorous life for millennium man
With a professional wife and a growing clan
It’s an amorous world for the modern guy
But sometimes I could cry



Sometimes I could cry but I don’t cos it’s not so bad
If you look too close it’ll drive you mad
I can make my luck I can take my life by the hands



Now it’s a glamorous world for millennium man
With a professional wife and a growing clan
It’s an amorous life for the modern guy
But sometimes I could cry



But I’m doing all right and I’m feeling free
Looking forward to the twenty-first century
And I’m just about all I could want to be
So why should I cry?

Now it’s a glamorous world for millennium man
With a professional wife and a growing clan
It’s an amorous life for the modern guy
But sometimes I could cry
