    I sent a message to another time
    But as the days unwind, this I just can't believe
    I sent a note across another plane
    Maybe it's all a game, but this I just can't conceive.

    Can you hear me?

    I drive the very latest hovercar
    I don't know where you are
    But I miss you so much till then
    I met someone who looks a lot like you
    She does the things you do
    But she is an IBM.

    She's only programmed to be very nice
    But she's as cold as ice
    Whenever I get too near
    She tells me that she likes me very much
    But when I try to touch
    She makes it all too clear.

    She is the latest in technology
    Almost mythology
    But she has a heart stone
    She has an I.Q. of 1001
    She has a jumpsuit on
    And she's also a telephone.

    Is that what you want? (Is it what you want?)
    Is it what you really want? (Is it what you really want?)
    Is that what you want? (Is it what you want?)
    Is it what you really want?

    I realize that it must seem so strange
    That time has rearranged
    But time has the final word
    She knows I think of you, she reads my mind
    She tries to be unkind
    She knows nothing of our world

    Although her memory banks overflow
    No one would ever know
    For all she says: "Is that what you want?"
    Maybe one day I'll feel her cold embrace
    And kiss her interface
    'Til then, I'll leave her alone.
