Flesh & Bone lyrics

By: jimmy buffett

If men came from venus
And women came from mars
Then Id be lunching with my boyfriends
While you girls talked about cigars
But thats not how it happened
Evolution took a different turn
We may be creatures with some unique features
But weve still got a lot to learn

We made it nearly 20 centuries
But your monkeys with ph.d.s
Spun a web of communications
But its all still a tangle to me

I cant tell the spiders
From the dangling flies and moths
I feel like like some outsider
Who seems to have his wires all crossed

I cant fax you my love
I cant email my heart
I cant see your face in cyberspace
I dont know where to start

Im light years behind
From the age they call stone
Im a carbon based caveman
Honey just flesh and bone

I aint no clone
Im just flesh and bone
Trying to connect with you
I aint no clone
Im just flesh and bone
Trying to get my message through

Now we live in this age of computers
They run everything in the world
And Im a little behind on this technical climb
And you are an internet girl

Ive got words but no processor
Ive got feelings but I dont know dos
So I just have to go back to basics
To try to get my point across

Desperate for a glimpse of the future
We use crystals and cards and dice
And that y2k is coming our way
Theyre talking about some worldly strife

Its time to think of simpler options
Its time to formulate a big plan b
So if your hard drive does crash
Ive got some kruggerands stashed
Come on and sail away with me

I cant fax you my love
I cant email my heart
I cant see your face in cyberspace
I dont know where to start

Im light years behind
From the age they call stone
Im a carbon based caveman
Honey just flesh and bone

I aint no clone
Im just flesh and bone
Trying to connect with you
I aint no clone
Im just flesh and bone
Lets run away to timbuktu

(spoken) oh yeah baby come on run away
Dont worry I dont byte
I might nip a little bit
Here let me get that
