I dreamed that I was living in the world beyond
That I was born after they dropped the bomb
I dreamed that I was sitting on my fathers knee
And he told me of the world that used to be

Tell me again how it used to be
Did grass really grow?
And what was a tree?
Did rain really fall from the sky?
What a shame that it all had to die
Tell me about the automobile
How did it run?
And what was a wheel?
Could children stand up all alone?
I think that your putting me on

I dreamed that I was sitting on my fathers knee
And he told me of the world that used to be

Tell me again
How it used to be
Did birds really fly?
And what was TV?
Did concrete cover the land?
And what was a Rock & Roll band?
Tell me again
What kids used to do
What was a doll?
And what was a shoe?
Did children look different from me?
That must have been something to see

I dreamed that I was living in the world beyond
That I was born after they dropped the bomb
I dreamed that I was sitting on my fathers knee
And he told me of the world that used to be

Tell me again
Bout sunshine and rain
What was a boat?
And what was a train?
Were people as lonely as me?
And did they live in caves such as we?
