Dm                  Cmaj7                           Dm
  Welcome to modern times, I hope that you like it here
                        Cmaj7                          Dm
  A celebration of your life, with caviar and kegs of beer
                                Cmaj7
  You said, wait until tomorrow - I thought you were wrong
   Dm                                       Cmaj7
  When you said someday we'd be together, I never knew it'd take so long
