We Just don't have Jetpacks yet

Apparently Matt Watson came up with this title and I thought it was excellent, so I tried to write it. Yeah...


Original lyrics
I'm not surprised,
Not everything lasts,
I've broken my heart so many times,
I stopped keepin' track.
Talked myself in,
I've talked myself out,
I get all worked up,
Than I let myself down,

I tried so very hard not to lose it,
I came up with a million excuses,
I thought I thought of every possibility,

And I know someday that it'll all turn out,
You make me work so we can work to work it out,
And I promise you kid that I'll give so much more than I get,
I just haven't met you yet.

Mmmmm...

I might have to wait,
I'll never give up,
I guess it's half time,
And the other half's luck,
Wherever you are,
Whenever it's right,
You'll come out of nowhere and into my life,

I know that we can be so amazing,
And baby your love is gonna change me,
And now I can see every possibility,

Hmmmmm...

And somehow I know that it'll all turn out,
And you make me work so we can work to work it out,
And I promise you kid I'll give so much more than I get,
I just haven't met you yet.

They say all's fair,
In love and war,
But I won't need to fight it,
We'll get invited,
We'll be united,

And I know that we can be so amazing,
And being in your life is gonna change me,
And now I can see every single possibility,

Hmmm...

And someday I know it'll all turn out,
And I'll work to work it out,
I promise you kid I'll give more than I get
than I get, than I get, than I get

Oh, you know it'll all turn out,
And you'll make me work so we can to work it out
And I promise you kid to give so much more than I get
I just havent met you yet




New Lyrics

Technology

Is changing so fast

Have so many gadgets in my house,

I stopped keepin' track.

The work that goes in

To work these things out

It's blowing my mind

Just trying to think about.

 

And I know that I should find this amazing

But one thing continues to evade me

We're missing out on one essential technology

 

And I know that someday we can figure this out

How much more work could it take to work it out

It's amazing the stuff  we can do but I simply don’t get

How we just don’t have jetpacks yet

 

Mmmmm...

 

Imagine how great

How sweet it would be

For personal flight

With a minimal fee

Wherever you are

Whenever you like

You just press a button, and launch into flight

 

And I know that it sounds kind of crazy

we video chat from here to Haiti

That was some big sci-fi impossibility


Hmmmmm...

 

And someday I know that we'll be flying about

We won't have to find twelve grand to shell out

And I don't think it's too unreasonable to expect

Why don’t we have jet packs yet

 

They say the fuel

Would weigh too much

Though we're being shortsighted

We'll be delighted

When they're ignited


But I don't want to hear your excuses

That we'd train for years just to use it

There has got to be some new kind of possibility

 

Hmmm...

 

Scooters and cars you can all throw out

Cause we'll all just fly about

We don't have the brains, but I'm sure we can get

We can get, we can get, we can get,


The sciencey geeks to work it out

And we'll make them work till their brains all fall out

Enslaved engineers will give so much more than they get

We just don’t have jetpacks yet
