The Future Freaks Me Out Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I'm on fire and now I think I'm ready to bust a move
Check it out I'm rocking steady, go

Betty won't stop listening to modern rock
How she hates to be alone
I try to compensate her lack of love with coffee cake
Ice cream and a bottle of ten dollar wine

She says, "Hey I rock the Haro sport, I rock the cowgirl blues
I rock too fast for love I'm footloose in my Velcro shoes
What's up with Will and Grace? I don't get drum and bass
The future freaks me out"

I'm on fire and now I think I'm ready to bust a move
Check it out I'm rocking steady to the beat in my head
It goes oh, oh, oh, oh, I know that she's the only one
I'd rather waste our time together, yeah, 'cause we can get down

Betty can't quit carving question marks on my wrist
How come we're so alone
We waste away the days with nicotine and television samples
From an era we hate to admit we embrace

We fail to represent, we fail to be content
We fail at everything we ever even try to attempt
And so the story goes as only Betty knows
It's time to take control

I'm on fire and now I think I'm ready to bust a move
Check it out I'm rocking steady to the beat in my head
It goes oh, oh, oh, oh, I know that she's the only one
I'd rather waste my time with her

Betty, I need you, I miss you
I'm so alone without you
To call up on the weekends
With my cellular phone

Betty it's so hard to relate
To the whole human race
I don't know where to begin
I don't know where to begin

If we can both find a way
To do the things that we say
We might not sit in our rooms
And drink our daydreams away

Betty, I'm a dreamer
I'm not a vicious schemer
Oh Betty won't you, ah fuck it

I'm on fire and now I think I'm ready to bust a move
Check it out I'm rocking steady to the beat in my head
It goes oh, oh, oh, oh, I know that she's the only one
I'd rather waste our time together, yeah, 'cause we can get down
