lyrics

Chorus
If I had been born 10 thousand years ago
At the dawn of civilization, one thing that I know
Is that if I had been born 10 thousand years ago ...
I'd be dead by now

Unless, that is, I was immortal
Like that fellow in that movie where there could "be only one"
But I'm not a very good swordsman, so if I met the Spaniard or the Kurgan
I'm pretty sure I would be done

Chorus <1000 years ago, back in the Middle Ages>

Unless, that is, I was a Time Lord
With a T.A.R.D.I.S. and companion, showing up to save the day
But I'd probably get lost or worse, ranging through the universe
Yeah, I would've bought the farm on Gallifrey

Chorus <500 years ago, in the Age of Exploration>

Unless, that is, I was a vampire
Like the cool ones in the movies -- suave, debonair, and smart
But if I had to be the sparkly kind, I think that would drive me out of my mind
And I might put a stake through my own heart

Chorus <100 years ago, in the early 20th Century>

Unless, I grabbed the Sorcerer's Stone
