 Struggling with Year 3000? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

One day when I came home at lunchtime I heard a funny noise.
Went out to the backyard to find out if it was one of those rowdy boys.
Stood there was my neighbor called Peter and a flux capacitor.

He told me he'd built a time machine like one in a film I've seen. Yeah, yeah.

He said
I've been to the year 3000.
Not much has changed but they lived underwater.
And your great,great,great-granddaughter is pretty fine.(Is pretty fine)

He took me to the future in the flux thing and I saw everything.
Boy bands and another one and another one and another one.
Triple breasted women swim around town totally naked.

We drove around in the time machine like one in a film I've seen. Yeah, yeah.

He said
I've been to the year 3000.
Not much has changed but they lived underwater.
And your great,great,great-granddaughter is pretty fine.(Is pretty fine)

I took a trip to the year 3000,
This song had gone multi-platinum.
Everybody bought our seventh album,
It had outsold Michael Jackson.
I took a trip to the year 3000,
this song had gone multi-platinum.
Everybody bought our seventh album

We drove around in the time machine like one in a film I've seen. Yeah, yeah

I've been to the year 3000.
Not much has changed but they lived underwater.
And your great,great,great-granddaughter is pretty fine. She's pretty fine.

He said
I've been to the year 3000.
Not much has changed but they lived underwater.
And your great,great,great-granddaughter is pretty fine.
