Yeah. In ‘95, 3.9 million babies are born
In America. Let’s see what else was going on.

‘96. We cloned a sheep named Dolly
Collecting Pokémon is a new hobby.
That’s the year that you could die from beef
Whether it’s rap-related or mad cow disease.
Tupac dies. And in ’97, Biggie
So does Princess Diana. That’s a pity.

Some were scared of Y2K
But we partied all night for a brand new day.

In fact, it’s decided by the Supreme Court.
2001. Yeah, we’re on our science
Map the genome. iPod arrives.
But America changed the hour
When the two planes hit the two towers.

But we have the first female speaker of the house
Every year, new barriers for women break down.

Obama is the first black president.
Michael Phelps dominates the pool
The economy tanks. Banks act a fool.
’09. Stimulus. Water on the moon
R.I.P., MJ. He is gone too soon.
2010. Oil spill. That’s crazy

But some lives are saved. The miners freed
I bet fresh air never smelled so sweet.

And I cried when I heard what went down
To the little kids killed in Newtown.
This year, Boston Marathon bombings
Pope resigned. We got a new Roman pontiff.
3.2 million graduates
I hope you’re looking at the present, and you’re grabbing it.
‘Cause time passes in the blink of an eye
When you look ahead, don’t forget to look behind.
