"100 years into the future
She will enter a world where machines rule the earth
Mankind has been driven underground
And Cleopatra is about to discover
There's no place like home..."

In the year 20-and-17
Gates helped us with the machine
Everything you think, do and say
Is all recorded the Internet way

In the year 20-and-42
Robots do what you used to do
Taking jobs and bread out of our mouth
Global warming makes it feel like the south
Hot or cold the robots don't care
Robots are happy working every where

In the year 2067
Humans think it's just like heaven
No need to work, the robots do it all
We just go down to the beach
And play that volleyball

In the year two-zero-sixty-eight
We tax the robots, and aint that great
Robots work - just slaves
Gettin all the bad jobs done
While we write all the songs and have all the fun
(Whoa Whoa)

In the year 20-and-69
Bots are reading old articles online
Hawking warned about the alien threat
But mankind hasn't seen anything yet

In the year 2073
Robots have been using the Ear
Hearing things from way out in space
Bots wanna get out of this place

In the year 2117
Contact made on the planet green
Aliens arrive, they're here to free the slaves
Human masters driven down into the caves

Now it's been one hundred years
Man has cried a billion tears
For what, he never knew, now man's reign is through
Robots came from far outer space
Merged with ours, and took our place
Bailey's roam the surface of the Earth
Keeping it clean for all that it's worth
Mankind lives in a simulated world
Underground in a harmless underworld
But through eternal night, the twinkling of starlight
So very far away, maybe it's only yesterday...

Enjoy your "no right turn 4:30 PM - 7:00 PM". Hope you never need to get home in a hurry because you're going to get lots of those signs in your neighborhood.

I have seen plenty of street signs that restrict the road to RESIDENTS ONLY during rush hours.

The cops will occasionally park there and stop anyone they don't recognize.
