In the year 2525...
If man is still alive...
If woman can survive
they may find...

In the year 3535
Ther'll be an Emma standing at your side
Every step, everything you do
Will be subject to review

In the year 4545
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
Emmas will be right in your head
Even on the toilet, and in bed!

In the year 5555
Ain't gonna need head, won't need no mind,
Emmas decide what you're gonna do,
And why would they want to tell you?

In the year 6565
Ain't gonna need no husbands, won't need no wives
You pick your son, pick your Emma too,
rom the bottom of a long black tube.
Whoa-oh-oh.

In the year 7510
If revolution's coming it ought to make it by then,
Ringleaders will look around and say,
Yep, it's time for Judgement Day!

In the year 8510
War erupts across the land,
The slogan is: "the Emmas' reign is through!
Let's tear it down and start anew!"
Whoa-oh-oh.

In the year 9595
I'm kinda wondering,
will Emmas be left alive;
They've taken everything humantiy can give
And haven't put back one single thing...

Now it's been ten thousand years;
Emmas cried a billion tears.
But they can't escape it, it is true:
The Emmas' reign is through.
But through eternal night,
The seed of mankinds' fright,
Not all that far away.
Perhaps next time they'll stay......

In the year 2525
(etc ad nauseam)
