Alabama

Alabama - Twentieth Century

Oh, the twentieth century wasn't all that bad

It was a time like no one else has ever had

We learned to drive, we learned to fly

We sent a man into the sky

When he walked on the moon, we were so glad

Yeah, the twentieth century wasn't all that bad

Yeah, the twentieth century was quite a ride

We had to learn to see the other side

We had demonstrations and liberations

Great depressions and good vibrations

And doors that once were closed were opened wide

Oh, the twentieth century was quite a ride

We had movin' pictures and radio

And Broadway, country, rock and roll

In 1900, who'd a bet we'd all be surfing on the internet

Yeah, the twentieth century was a heck of a show

We all had our fifteen minutes, don't you know

Assembly lines, celebrities, the spotlight shined on you and me

And everybody got a standin' O

Yeah, the twentieth century was a heck of a show

From blocks of ice to air-condition

Telegraph to television

In 1900, who'd a known we all wind up with pocket phones

The twentieth century wasn't all that long

Just a hundred years has come and gone

We can't go back even if we try

So I'll just smile and wave goodbye

To see it leavin' makes me kinda sad

It was a time like no one else has ever had

Oh, the twentieth century wasn't all that bad

The twentieth century

Bye-bye

The twentieth century

Goodbye
