30 Century Man
Scott Walker Lyrics


See the dwarfs an' see the giants
Which one would you choose to be?

And if you can't get that together
Here's the answer, here's the key

You can freeze like thirty century man
Like a thirty century man

I'll save my breath and take it with me
Till a hundred years and so
Shame you won't be there to see me
Shaking hands with Charles de Gaulle

Play it cool an' Saran wrap all you can
Be a thirty century man
You can freeze like a thirty century man
Like a thirty century man, mmhm

You can freeze like thirty century man
Like a thirty century man

I'll save my breath and take it with me
Till a hundred years and so 
Shame you won't be there to see me
Shaking hands with Charles de Gaulle

Play it cool an' Saran wrap all you can
Like a thirty century man
You can freeze like a thirty century man
Like a thirty century man

In my opinion, one of the best written songs. He gets in, says his piece, gets out, and the listener is left fulfilled, not asking for more. 90 perfect seconds.

John Osman

Agree. Knowing when to stop is a real sign of mastery.

Ian Sane

Love this. I agree.

Meka B

+Nick Lang I totally agree with that statement, and it reminds me of Harry Nilsson "everybody's talking" which has the same feeling to me.
