​Modern Life

This song is by Devo and appears on the album Recombo DNA (2000).

It's a modern life but it's not what you're lookin' for.
Whoa. It's a modern life.
It's a modern life but it's not what it's 'sposed to be.
Whoa. It's a modern life.

The potential was there but it got tossed in the can
Too many corkscrews to carry out the plan
You're tryin' to make a difference but you're just another man.

It's a modern life but it's not what you're looking for.
Whoa. What you're lookin' for.

Whoa. Time to let it go.
It's a modern life but it's not what it's 'sposed to be.
Whoa. It's a modern life.
It's a modern life but it looks like it came from a zoo
Whoa. Like it came from a zoo.

You had a different idea but now you're just out of luck
You hunt a bargain just to save a buck
Now you're still on the job and it looks like you're stuck

It's a modern life but it's not what you're lookin' for
Whoa. It's a modern life.
It's a modern life but it reads better on TV
Whoa. It's a modern life.

Time to pay up, motherfucker.

It's a modern life but it's not what it's 'sposed to be.
Whoa. It's a modern life.
It's a modern life but it looks like it came from a zoo
Whoa. Like it came from a zoo.

You had a different idea but now you're just out of luck
You hunt a bargain just to save a buck
Now you're still on the job and it looks like you're stuck

It's a modern life but it's not what you're lookin' for.
Whoa. It's a modern life.

Time to pay up, motherfucker.

It's a modern life but it's not what it's 'sposed to be.
Whoa. It's a modern life.

Time to pay up, motherfucker.

It's a modern life but it's not what you're lookin' for.
Whoa. It's a modern life.
It's a modern life but it's not what you're lookin' for.
Whoa. It's a modern life.
It's a modern life but it's not what you're lookin' for.
Whoa. It's a modern life.
