Song Description

Looking back over the 20th century. Thought I?d give Schoenberg?s 12 tone series a try in pop mode. Choruses, drawn from one of my favorite Psalms, put the last century in perspective.

Story Behind the Song

There hasn?t been a World?s Fair for quite a while, but there were a string of them in the middle of the last century when we as a culture were full of ourselves. (Are we still? Have we learned?) As a child, I went to the ?64 World?s Fair in New York and was wowed by all things modern. Those modern toys have long since broken. This song is Post-Modern, not as a style or as a world view, but simply as something that comes after Modern. Otherwise, if anything, I?d consider myself a Pre-Modernist.

Lyrics

I?m a modern man.
I?ll do whatever I can.
I got science on my side.
Ev?ry new appliance is my pride.
And when times get tough,
I got all my stuff to keep me company.

When I consider Your heavens,
The work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which you have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?

I?m a modern man.
I got superior knowledge.
Marx and Freud can?t get me annoyed.
I took courses on them in college.

For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

I?m a modern man.
I do whatever I can.
If I step on your face, no apology.
They can fix it with some new technology.
When times get tough,
I got all my stuff to keep me company.

You have made him to have dominion over the works of your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,

I?m a modern man.
I?ll do whatever I can.
To kill was not my intention.
We gotta hope for some new invention.
But when times get tough,
I got all my stuff to keep me company.

But when times get tough,
I got all my stuff to keep me company.
