2000 MAN
(Jagger/Richards)

Well my name is a number
A piece of plastic film
And I'm growin' funny flowers
In my little window sill

Dont you know I'm a 2000 man
And my kids, they just don't understand me at all

Well my wife still respects me
I really misused her
I am having an affair
With a random computer

Don't you know I'm a 2000 man
And my kids, they just don't understand me at all

Oh daddy, proud of your planet
Oh mummy, proud of your sun
Oh daddy, proud of your planet
Oh mummy proud of your sun
Oh daddy, your brain's still flashin'
Like it did when you were young
Or do you come down crashin'
Seeing all the things you'd done
All was a big put on

Oh daddy, proud of your planet
Oh mummy proud of your son
Oh daddy, proud of your planet
Oh mummy proud of your son

Oh daddy, proud of your planet
Oh mummy proud of your sun
Oh daddy, proud of your planet
Oh mummy proud of your sun

And you know who's the 2000 man
And your kids they just won't understand you at all
