The Twentieth Century Is Almost Over Lyrics

Back in 1899, everybody sang
'Auld Lang Syne'
A hundred years would take
A long, long time for every boy and girl

Now, there's just one thing that I would like to know
Where did the 20th century go?
I swear, it was there just a minute ago

All over this world
All over this world
All over this world

The 20th century is almost over, almost over, almost over
The 20th century is almost over
All over the world

Does anyone recall the great depression?
I read all about it in the true confession
Sorry, I was late for the recording session
But somebody put me on hold

Did anybody see those linoleum floors
Petroleum jelly and the two world wars?
They went around in revolving doors

All over this world
All over this world

Old father, time is a rumblin' and a rappin'
Standin' at the window, thumpin' and a tappin'
Everybody's waitin' for somethin' to happen
Hope it don't happen to you

You know, the Judgement Day is gettin' nearer
There it is in the rear view mirror
If you duck down I could see a little clearer

All over this world
All over this world
All over this world
All over this world
