Future shock Ooh, hoo.... Hey, little sister Where's your brother See your mother Standing on the soup line God bless your father Ain't got the strength To be bothered The almighty world Hear me now Whisper on To weigh him down [CHORUS] We got to stop all men From messing up the land When won't we understand This is our last and only chance Everybody, it's a future shock Future shock, future shock

Future shock, future shock All worldly figures Playing on niggers Oh, see them passing See how they're dancing To the Superfly Oh, ain't it wrong When you don't know Where we come from Dancing in our youth Dying at the truth It ain't over (Over, over, ain't over) [repeat CHORUS] Future shock, future shock The price of the beat Higher than the dope in the street Is it any wonder For those with nothing to eat [repeat CHORUS] Future shock, future shock
