Oh, the future is grand. The future is great.
The politician’s get along so well they almost never debate.
The economy’s strong and continues to grow.
So, there’s just one thing remaining that I’ve got to know:

Where’s my flying car? Where’s my flying car?
World peace is great and so’s the cancer vaccine,
But where’s my fundamental, futuristic flying machine?
Where’s my flying car?

Oh, the future is fun. The future is swell.
There’s a Starbucks Hotel on every corner that sells water as well.
We’ve got flights to the moon and vacations on Mars,But there’s something more important than a trip to to the stars:

Where’s my flying car? Where’s my flying car?
Got my replicated 5-star gourmet meal,
But where’s my automatic, aerobatic automobile?
Where’s my flying car?

The future’s a thought. The future’s a door.
We’ve got warp drive convention elevators to the party floor.
We’ve got perfect clones, an artificial womb,
An antiseptic android who can clean our rooms – but…

Where’s my flying car? Where’s my flying car?
I’ve checked with Top Gear and in Detroit and Japan.
Where’s my super stylish, swiftly soaring, seagull sedan?
Where’s my flying car? Where’s my flying car?

Then again, with my luck, knowing just where I am,
I’ll be gridlocked in a vertical, vehicular jam.
Where’s my flying car? Where’s my flying car?
Where’s my flying car?

Vrooom, vrooom, vrooom!
