Last Man on Earth

In the year 2000
My age was 53
Born in the first half
Of the last century
I always was postmodern
But that's ancient history
Now 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 all are worthless now
That's just because they're free
If you're not a millionaire yet
Boy, you better be
Yeah, 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
We may get trigger locks
Existence is no picnic
That, statistics have all shown
We learn to live together
Then we die alone

Everybody's got a web site
That's all Greek to me
I don't own a computer
And 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
Taken the last train to Clarksville
I'm the fifth Monkee
Nice guys always finish last
And no one's nicer than me
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
Saint John told us that God is love
Nietzsche said he was dead
This thing that we call existence
Who knows what it all means?
Time and Life and People
Are just glossy magazines
And I sit and watch these guys
Debate each other on TV
Politicians, wrestlers,
They're all the same to me
No, I don't give a damn
Which idiot runs this country
'Cause I'm the last man on earth
It don't matter to me

In the year 2000
My age was 53
I know that I'm grumpy
And middle-age crazy
But if you are a woman
You might have to sleep with me
'Cause I'm the last man on earth
And I can guarantee
I'm the last man on earth
And there ain't nothing wrong with me

Loudon Wainwright III
