Back to the Future the Musical - Future Boy Lyrics

MARTY MCFLY: (spoken)
It's a small matter of power, Doc.
Uh, we need 1.21 gigawatts

1955 DOC BROWN: (spoken)
1.21 gigawatts... 1.21 gigawatts?
How are you gonna generate that much juice?!
I'm afraid you're stuck here!

MARTY MCFLY: (spoken)
Stuck here?!? Argh!
I cannot be stuck here!
I got a life in 1985!
I got a family! I got a girl!

1955 DOC BROWN: (spoken)
Is she pretty?

MARTY MCFLY: (spoken)
Doc, she's everything to me... please,
pleasepleaseplease, you are my only hope...
You've never let me down in the past...

1955 DOC BROWN: (spoken)
You mean in the future?

MARTY MCFLY: (spoken)
Hey, and you've always said:
"You can accomplish anything
if you just put your mind to it."

1955 DOC BROWN: (spoken)
I said that? That's good advice,
but I just don't know how to generate
that kind of power, future boy!

Future boy
I'm no future boy
'Cause I think I'm here to stay
What's the future for
If I don't get more than today?
I'm no future boy

I'll never find what I left behind
There's nothing for me here
There's only more of what came before
My future disappeared
Now everything's uncertain
Can't see behind the curtain
I can't go and I don't know
Where this all will lead...

DOC BROWN: (spoken)
Marty, there is one energy source capable
of generating 1.21 gigawatts of electricity:
It's a bolt... of lightning!

MARTY MCFLY: (spoken)
What did you say?

DOC BROWN: (spoken)
A bolt... of lightning! Unfortunately,
you never know when or where
it's ever gonna strike!

MARTY MCFLY: (spoken)
We do now

DOC BROWN: (spoken)
This is it!
It says here that the bolt of lightning is going
to strike the clocktower at exactly 10:04PM,
next Saturday night!

The physics of this problem are perplexing
The muscles in my brain are busy flexing
As a geometric form
Of a pending thunderstorm
Is hard to calculate
But now we have a date
And all my computations must conform!

MARTY MCFLY: (spoken)
Eh... if we can somehow harness this lightning,
channel it into the Flux Capacitor...

The way to get you back takes an equation
And a meteorological occasion
And then a lightning crack
Becomes a power pack
That's what it's gonna take;
No room for a mistake!
It's the only way to ever get you back!

The only way to ever get you back!

Back to the future, boy!
You're the future boy!
And we know we found a way!
Ah, you're the future boy
And it's gonna be okay!
Ah-ah-ah, Ah-ah-ah...
I'm the future boy!
He'll find a way!
He'll find a way!
He'll find a way!
He'll find a waaaaaa-aaaaaay!
I'm the future boy!
