A Hundred Years From Now

A Hundred Years From Now
(E. Spencer in 1899)

I'd like to see this earth again
A hundred years from now
And walk and talk with living men
A hundred years from now
I'd like to see how farming's done
How business is and how it's run
How votes are cast and office won
A hundred years from now

  A hundred years from now
  A hundred years from now
  A hundred years from now
  A hundred years from now

Of course there'll be no wood to burn
A hundred years from now
They'll be some tricks of trade to learn
A hundred years from now
There'll be big towns and steeples high
And buildings that will scrape the sky
And stores where all the world could buy
A hundred years from now

There'll be machines to shuck the corn
A hundred years from now
Machines to nurse the babe that's born
A hundred years from now
Machines that fly and walk by day
Machines that work, machines that play
Perhaps machines to preach and pray
A hundred years from now
