lyrics

In the 1980s when I was a little girl
I saw a show that showed me the
most magic future world
And when my folks were mean
I'd think about the world on my TV screen
I'd say these words and hope
that it would take me far away

Computer, end program
Take me away from here
Take me to the future where
life's easier to bear
Take me to a time
where they've abolished doubt and fear
Computer
Are you there?

I knew there must have been some reason
I'd been trapped in that dull life
Obviously my real folks were
a commander and his wife
She'd always understand
my thoughts and feelings, she'd just know
And one day they'll come and bring me back
to my starship home

Computer, end program
Take me away from here
Take me to the future where
life's easier to bear
Take me to a time
where they've abolished doubt and fear
Computer
Are you there?

Even though I'm grown up now
And know it's all a fantasy
There still are times when life gets to be
much too much to be believed
And when I feel defeated, brokedown and beaten
Like I just can't win
I find myself saying these words,
as if this time, maybe I'll get in

Computer, end program
Take me far away from here
Take me to that future where
Life's easier to bear
Take me to that time where
they've abolished doubt and fear
Computer
Are you there?

Computer, end program
Oh take me, take me so far away from here
Take me to that future where
Life's got to be a little easier to bear
Take me to that time where
they've abolished doubt and fear
Computer
Are you there?
