Well my name is a number, a piece of plastic
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
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
