Look at all the people lined up outside,
This must be the place
I see beautiful women dressed in black,
Everyone a pretty face

Red lips, tight hips, hey little girl
You make my heart do flips
Baby please, don't tease, can't you see
I love you I'm on my knees

Something is wrong with this picture
She doesn't like the way I dance
Why is everybody just standin' around
Lookin' for true romance

I'm looking at you and what do I see
Love in the 21st Century
I know what you're thinking
What's in it for me?

That's love in the 21st Century,
Love in the 21st Century
Tell me do I look like a desperate man
Champagne and flowers in my hand

I don't know her, she don't know me
She's my video date, she's my destiny
Do you like to party? (yeh, yeh, yeh)
Do you want to settle down? (no, no, no)

Do you like my kind of music? (yeh, yeh, yeh)
Do you want to mess around? (whoa, whoa, whoa)
Something is wrong with this picture
She doesn't even look the same

Whatever a poor boy does these days
Love is still a losing game
I'm looking at you, you're looking at me
It's love in the 21st Century

We're living in pictures, we want what we see
That's love in the 21st Century
Where do you go? What do you do?
How can somebody make his dreams come true?

What does everybody need desperately?
Love in the 21st Century, love in the 21st Century
She wants to party, love on the line
She likes to party, love on the line

It's the same sad story all over this world
Every man looking for the perfect girl
He sees her everyday in a magazine
Sees her everynight on a T.V. screen

Something is wrong with this picture
Has everybody gone insane?
Whatever a poor boy does these days
You can't find love and it's a cryin' shame

I can't touch you and you can't touch me
It's love in the 21st Century
It's all imagination and fantasy
That's love in the 21st Century

You can get it by mail, you can get it by phone
You can get it late at night when you're all alone
What does everybody want desperately?
Love in the 21st Century

We need love in the 21st Century
