Riff B
    Like a shipwrecked mariner adrift on an unknow sea

    I'm a castaway stranded in a desolate land
    I can see the footprints in the virtual sand

    Net boy, net girl
    Send your signal round the world
    Let your fingers walk and talk
    and set you free

    Put your message in a modem
    and throw it in the Cyber Sea

    Astronauts in weightlessness of pixellated space
    Exchange graffiti with a disembodied race

    I can save the universe in a grain of sand
    I can hold the future in my virtual hand

    Like a pair of vagabonds who wave between to passing trains
    Or the glimpse of a woman's smile through a window in the rain

    I can smell her perfume, I can taste her lips
    I can feel the voltage from her fingertips

Riff D
    Net boy, net girl
    Send your signal round the world
    Let your fingers walk and talk
    and set you free
