Standing tough 
under stars and stripes
We can tell
This dream’s in sight
You’ve got to admit it
At this point in time 
that it’s clear
The future looks bright
On that train 
all graphite and glitter
Undersea by rail
Ninety minutes 
from new york to paris
Well by seventy-six 
we’ll be a.o.k.

What a beautiful world 
this will be
What a glorious time 
to be free

Get your ticket
 to that wheel in space
While there’s time
The fix is in
You’ll be a witness to that 
game of chance in the sky
You know we’ve got to win
Here at home 
we’ll play in the city
Powered by the sun
Perfect weather 
for a streamlined world
There’ll be spandex 
jackets one for everyone

What a beautiful 
world this will be
What a glorious time 
to be free

On that train 
all graphite and glitter
Undersea by rail
Ninety minutes 
from new york to paris
(more leisure 
for artists everywhere)
A just machine 
to make big decisions
Programmed by fellows 
with compassion and vision
We’ll be clean 
when their work is done
We’ll be eternally free 
yes and eternally young

What a beautiful world 
this will be
What a glorious time 
to be free
