    This is the age of machinery,
    A mechanical nightmare,
    The wonderful world of technology,
    Napalm hydrogen bombs biological warfare,

    This is the twentieth century,
    But too much aggravation
    It's the age of insanity,
    What has become of the green pleasant fields of Jerusalem.

    Ain't got no ambition, I'm just disillusioned
    I'm a twentieth century man but I don't wanna be here.
    My mama said she can't understand me
    She can't see my motivation
    Just give me some security,
    I'm a paranoid schizoid product of the twentieth century.

    You keep all your smart modern writers
    Give me William Shakespeare
    You keep all your smart modern painters
    I'll take Rembrandt, Titian, Da Vinci and Gainsborough,

    Girl we gotta get out of here
    We gotta find a solution
    I'm a twentieth century man but I don't want to die here.

    I was born in a welfare state
    Ruled by bureaucracy
    Controlled by civil servants
    And people dressed in grey
    Got no privacy got no liberty
    Cos the twentieth century people
    Took it all away from me.

    Don't wanna get myself shot down
    By some trigger happy policeman,
    Gotta keep a hold on my sanity
    I'm a twentieth century man but I don't wanna die here.

    My mama says she can't understand me
    She can't see my motivation
    Ain't got no security,
    I'm a twentieth century man but I don't wanna be here.

    This is the twentieth century
    But too much aggravation
    This is the edge of insanity
    I'm a twentieth century man but I don't wanna be here.
