Well my name is a number, a piece of plastic film
And I grow many flowers in my little window sill

Don't you know I'm the 2000 man?
And my kids they just don't understand me at all

Though my wife still respects me, I really misuse here
I am having an affair with a random computer

Oh Daddy, be proud of your planet
Oh Mommy, be proud of your sun (son)

Oh Daddy, is your brain still flashing
Like it did when you were young?
Or did you come down crashing
Seeing all the things you've done?
Oh it's a big put on

And you know who's the 2000 man
And your kids they just won't understand you at all
