WELCOME TO THE FUTURE by Brad Paisley

When I was ten years old,
I remember thinkin’ how cool it would be,
When we were goin’ on an eight hour drive,
If I could just watch T.V.

And I’d have given anything
To have my own PacMan game at home.
I used to have to get a ride down to the arcade;
Now I’ve got it on my phone.

He-e-ey…
Glory glory hallelujah.
Welcome to the future.

My grandpa was in World War II,
He fought against the Japanese.
He wrote a hundred letters to my grandma;
Mailed em from his base in the Philippines.

I wish they could see this now,
Where they say this change can go.
Cause I was on a video chat this morning
With a company in Tokyo.

He-e-ey…
Everyday is a revolution.
Welcome to the future.

He-e-ey…
Look around it’s all so clear.
He-e-ey…
Wherever we would go and well we…
He-e-ey…
So many things I never thought I’d see…
Happening right in front of me.

I had a friend in school,
Running-back on a football team,
They burned a cross in his front yard
For asking out the home-coming queen.

I thought about him today,
Everybody who’s seen what he’s seen,
From a woman on a bus
To a man with a dream.

He-e-ey…
Wake up Martin Luther.
Welcome to the future.
He-e-ey…
Glory glory hallelujah.
Welcome to the future.
