Any body here fill in the question marks????

In the year 2000 My age was 53
Born in the first half of the last century
I always was post-modern but that's ancient history
Now I'm the last man on earth, that's what the matter is with me

I guess I'm old fashioned, retro to a degree
You could say I'm a throw-back, anachronistically
Air conditioning is here to stay and that makes me unhappy
Cause I'm the last man on earth, that's what the matter is with me

I don't have a portfolio I gotta plead guilty
The best things are all worthless now, that's just because they're free
And if you're not a millionaire yet, well, boy you better be
Now I'm the last man on earth, that's what the matter is with me

I should be optimistic and go buy some bonds and stocks
They'll find a cure for cancer soon
When they get trigger locks
Existence is no picnic as statistics all have shown
We learn to live together, then we die alone

Everybody's got a web site, well that's all greek to me
I don't own a computer... I hate that letter "E"
I don't pack a cell phone, or drive an SUV
Yes I'm the last man on earth, that's what the matter is with me

I'm the last man standing save the last dance for me
I'm taking the last train to Clarksville I'm the 5th Monkey
Nice guys always finish last, no ones nicer than me
Ya I'm the last man on earth, that's what the matter is with me

Kids used to say their prayers at night before they went to bed
St. John told us that God is Love, -???????- said he was dead
This thing we call existence who knows what it all means
Time and Life and People are just glossy magazines

I sat and watched those guys debate each other on TV
Politicians, wrestlers, they're all the same to me
Hey I don't give a damn, which idiot runs this country
Since I'm the last man on earth, it don't matter to me

In the year 2000 My age was 53
Now I know that I'm grumpy, middle-aged crazy
But if you are a woman you might have to sleep with me
Since I'm the last man on earth and I can guarantee
Ya I'm the last man on earth, and there ain't nothin' wrong with me...

,-)

Hey, Clinton - do you remember when you posted to this thread to complain about somebody posting singer-songwriter lyrics - to this very song?
