[Intro]
I watched women in Egypt crying tears of joy on my mobile telephone on the overground from Hackney Wick to Camden on my way to buy my girlfriend an engagement ring
"Living In The Future" I thought
The women were still crying tears of joy in Egypt when we switched the television on in Stephen Hague's flat in Paris
And when I switched the radio on, they were playing the ODB

[Verse 1]
Shimmy shimmy ya shimmy yam shimmy yay
Give em the mic or they will take it away
Them old tricks won't work cos its a new day
Its a new level of the game and a new way to play
Ave, I say
PAX
DONICUS
Olé to every one of us
Cos they been bombing us
Bumming us
But they failed numbing us
And soon they'll see that it is they that's under us

[Hook]
They say the worlds gone crazy
Its amazing to me
If these the last days baby then I'm grateful to be
How fine
To live interesting times
We live in interesting times
We've more than money on our minds
We love each other how sublime
Yo live interesting times
We live in interesting times

I had this ring in a box, in my left pocket
It kept rattling
I was trying to stop it rattling cos I didn't want to give away the fact that I had a ring in a box
Paris is beautiful
But there is dogshit everywhere

[Verse 2]
I saw a dictator on a live stream
It was tragic
He thought he was the only motherfucker with the magic
He looked as if he never even dreamed of the day
When the people would come and take his powers away
But they never were his
They were just borrowed
A tissue for your sorrow
We're living in tomorrow
Who knows what will follow
I just know what I saw
The thousands amassed
The next day there were more
They used the same words
The words filled with power
A vampire can only devour
And cower in the presence of light
And with many there is might
And you dont need a weatherman to tell when the night is nearly over
And day is dawning
Born and bawling
Six in the morning
The wind changed and some got stuck with the silly face
That couture dont suit you
We're living in the future

[Hook]
They say the worlds gone crazy
Its amazing to me
If these the last days baby then I'm grateful to be
How fine
To live interesting times
We live in interesting times
We've more than money on our minds
We love each other how sublime
To live interesting times
We live in interesting times

[Outro]
Now this isn't quite the end of the sotry
And I know some of you at home are wondering what she said
What do you think she said?
YES!
