Joe Offer Lyr Req: The Twentieth Century Is Almost Over (68* d) ADD 2020 Is Almost Over 27 Dec 20


My friend Larry Montgomery is a wonderful person, a fascinating songwriter, and an amazing bird photographer. Here's his update of "20th Century is Almost Over."

2020 IS ALMOST OVER
(Larry Montgomery)

Back in December 2019, no one asked Santa for a COVID vaccine,
We sure weren't expecting a quarantine, for every boy and girl,
Now there's just one thing I'd like to know, when will 2020 go,
2021 is gettin' here too slow, All over this world

CHORUS
And now 2020 is almost over,
Almost over, almost over
2020 is almost over
All over this world.
All over this world, all over this world
2020 is almost over, all over this world.

We're all just longing for a brand new year, hold on folks it's almost here,
We'll see 2020 in the rear view mirror, Not a minute too soon,
How you gonna keep em down on the farm, Now that the Space Farce has stolen all the charm,
They just might use nuclear arms, to wipe the smile off the man in the moon.

With a con man in charge, the nation is hurtin',
But things will get better, that's for certain,
Biden's not beholden to the iron curtain,
Unlike Don the con,
Does anyone remember the great recession,
I read all about it in a Facebook session,
But nobody learned the history lesson, So the scam goes on and on

CH

------------------------------------------------------------------

Back in 1899, when everyone was singing "Auld Lang Syne"
A century took a long, long time for every boy and girl.
Now there's only one thing that I'd like to know
Where did the 20th century go?
I'd swear it was here just a minute ago
All over this world.

Chorus:
And now the 20th century is almost over,
Almost over, almost over
The 20th century is almost over
All over this world.
All over this world, all over this world
The 20th century is almost over, all over this world.

Does anyone remember the Great Depression?
I read all about it in True Confession
I'm sorry I was late for the recording session
But somebody put me on hold.
Has anybody seen my linoleum floors
Petroleum jelly, and two World Wars?
They got stuck in the revolving doors
All over this world.
And now...

The winter's getting colder, summer's getting hotter
Wishin' well's wishin' for another drop of water.
And Mother Earth's blushin' 'cause somebody caught her
Makin' love to the Man in the Moon.
Tell me how you gonna keep 'em down on the farm
Now that outer space has lost its charm?
Somebody set off a burglar alarm
And not a moment too soon.
Because...

Old Father Time has got his toes a tappin'
Standing in the window, grumblin' and a rappin'
Everybody's waiting for something to happen.
Tell me if it happens to you!
The Judgment Day is getting nearer
There it is in the rear view mirror.
If you duck down I could see a little clearer
All over this world!

And now...
