Well I was born ten years after the atom bomb
Yeah things were getting strange way before I came along
So I became a master of high technology
And then you came along and did what you ya did to me

(chorus)
Heavens above-COULD THIS BE LOVE
We're livin' in the 20th Century
I pit my wits against those silicon chips
BUT I STILL GOT THE ANIMAL INSIDE O ME

I get a strange sensation that's out of control
Close to the bone and playin' havoc with my soul
All the red lights are flashing and I can smell fire
With a flick of the switch you know we can go
even higher and higher and higher

CHORUS

Well I had cool calculators, regulators and
digital machines
Yeah they took me to places I'd never been
Oh but nothing's as good as the feeling I get with you
When ya do, what ya do, what ya do, what ya do do do

CHORUS

YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!
The 20th Century
YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!
HIGH TACKNOLOGY
