Rhys Gruffydd - Science Fiction Cars

She said:
I don’t like the Mini Metro
Not even the 6R4
Me, I aim for the stars
And that car’s just stuck to the floor.

But if you
Turned up in a Batmobile
Or better Ed Straker’s car
I would love you more than any other
You’d be setting the highest bar.

Don’t tell me you’re unimpressed
By economy and practicality
When these things are achieved by science
Engineering lifting us out all of banality.

Ohhh ohhhh ohhhhoooo

Are you ready?
I’m ready,
Are you ready?
You don’t look ready
Get ready

Don’t skip on technology
Don’t go light with the science
Don’t just blind us with ecology
People and physics is a grand alliance.

And we’re almost there, yes we’re almost there
We’re almost there, yes we’re almost there
We’re almost there, yes we’re almost there

Watch out, they look like aliens
They might be aliens
I think they’re aliens.

Magnetic levitation
And flying cars
Haven’t reached us just yet
But they’ll be here
When we get to the future
That I’m willing to bet.

Flying cars? It’s impossible! It’ll never happen, I’m telling you, I know. 

It’s a fallacy
This will never happen
Let me tell you how.
With hydrogen fuel cells and
Solid state batteries
Sci-Fi cars are here right now

Yes we’re living with
Science fiction cars
