Modern Girl

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

Gimmee the future—gimmee the future
Gimmee the future with a modern girl
Gimmee the future—gimmee the future
Gimmeethe 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 ya 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

Gimmee the future—gimmee the future
Gimmee the future with a modern girl
Gimmee the future—gimmee the future
Gimmee the future with a modern girl

(gimmee the future—gimmee the future)
(gimmee the future with a modern girl)

We’re the son and the daughter on a new freeway
(GIMMEE THE FUTURE—GIMMEE THE FUTURE)
Laughin’ while the road maps blow away
(GIMMEE THE FUTURE WITH A MODERN GIRL)
We’re the son and the daughter and we ain’t afraid
(GIMMEE THE FUTURE—GIMMEE THE FUTURE)
Won’t be makin’ the mistakes our fathers made
(GIMMEE THE FUTURE WITH A MODERN GIRL)

(gimmee the future—gimmee the future)
(gimmee the future with a modern girl)
(gimmee the future—gimmee the future)
Oh gimmee the future with a modern girl....

Once a beautiful Miss America married Mr Right
Had a little baby boy born a stormy night
But that was once upon a time—now it’s a brand new world

(gimmee the future—gimmee the future)
Gimmee the future with a modern girl...
(gimmee the future—gimmee the future)
Gimmee the future with a modern girl...

(gimmee the future—gimmee the future)
Gimmee the future with a modern girl...
(gimmee the future—gimmee the future)
Gimmee the future with a modern girl...

(gimmee the future—gimmee the future)
Won’t you gimmee the future with a modern girl...

We’re the son and the daughter on a new freeway
(GIMMEE THE FUTURE—GIMMEE THE FUTURE)
Laughin’ while the road maps blow away
(GIMMEE THE FUTURE WITH A MODERN GIRL)
We’re the son and the daughter and we ain’t afraid
(GIMMEE THE FUTURE—GIMMEE THE FUTURE)
Won’t be makin’ the mistakes our fathers made
(GIMMEE THE FUTURE WITH A MODERN GIRL)

(gimmee the future—gimmee the future)
(gimmee the future with a modern girl)
(gimmee the future—gimmee the future)
(gimmee the future with a modern girl)....

Take a Number

I’m just a packer at the butcher shop at 5th and Main
But somethin’ about me drives the girls insane
Yeah the boss says I must be doin’ something right
‘Cuz they been jammin’ the parkin’ lot night after night

Used to have a problem meetin’ girls before
But since I got this leather jacket
They been beatin’ down my door

Take a number
You gotta take a number please
If ya wanna feel your long hair
Flyin’ in the summer breeze

Take a number
I’m a housewifes new delight
Every mother and daughter
Wants to jump on the back a’my bike

Is it the roar of the engine makes ‘em twitch and moan
Or just the light of the moon bouncin’ off the chrome
Don’t need a lot of money or a fancy car
Just a hot 750 with a sissy bar

Used to be nothin’ but an avarage workin’ Joe
But since I got my motorcycle
The girls won’t let me go

Take a number
You gotta take a number please
If ya wanna feel your long hair
Flyin’ in the summer breeze

Take a number
I’m a housewifes new delight
Every mother and daughter
Wants to jump on the back a’my bike

Heard a noise in the driveway last night
Turned the floodlights on
Then I noticed the keys were missin’ from the shelf

Then the gravel kicked the window
And the engine howled goodnight
There was a butcher’s daughter peelin’ out by herself

You gotta take a number....

Don’t matter whether you’re a lawyer or a two-bit bum
When you’re rippin’ up the road you’re always number one
Yeah the lady might be eighty or just sweet sixteen
But she loves to wrap her legs around a shiny machine

Don’t matter if it’s Texas or the coast a’Maine
The rush of the wind is exactly the same
Don’t worry ‘bout the future don’t bother ‘bout the past
Ain’t no punch clock when you’re goin’ this fast

Take a number
You gotta take a number please
If ya wanna feel your long hair
Flyin’ in the summer breeze

Take a number
I’m a housewifes new delight
Every mother and daughter
Wants to jump on the back a’my bike

Take a number
You gotta take a number please
If ya wanna feel your long hair
Flyin’ in the summer breeze

Take a number
I’m a housewifes new delight
Every mother and daughter
Wants to jump on the back a’my bike.....
