Johnny Cash

"The Twentieth Century Is Almost Over"

[Verse 1]
Back in 1899, when everyone was singing auld lang syne
A century took a long, long time for every boy and girl
Now there's only one thing that I'd like to know
Where did the 20th century go
I'd swear it was here just a minute ago

[Chorus]
All over this world

[Verse 2]
And now the 20th century is almost over
Almost over, almost over
The 20th century is almost over

[Chorus][x3]

[Verse 3]
Does anyone remember the great depression
I read all about it in true confession
I'm sorry I was late for the recording session
But somebody put me on hold
Has anybody seen my linoleum floors
Petroleum jelly, and two world wars
They got stuck in the revolving doors

[Chorus]

[Verse 4]
The winter's getting colder, summer's getting hotter
Wishing well's wishing for another drop of water
And mother earth's blushing because somebody caught her
Making love to the man in the moon
Tell me how you're going to keep them down on the farm
Now that outer space has lost it's charm
Somebody set off a burglar alarm
And not a moment too soon
Because
Old father time has got his toes tapping
Standing in the window, grumbling and a rapping
Everybody's waiting for something to happen
Tell me if it happens to you
The judgment day is getting nearer
There it is in the rear view mirror
If you duck down I could see a little clearer

[Chorus]
