    Pete Seeger wrote the original verses, at least some of it.

    I did not even think that some young folks might not know Peter Paul & Mary or the song. I raised my kids right listening to the classics... How oId I feel right now.

    "I Wish I Had a Time Machine"
    by programmer_guy

    I wish I had a time machine to visit those old days
    The child I had and what we did in many remembered ways
    My daughter was in those times oh so long ago
    I can see her face in my mind and I miss her so

    She gave me her troll doll one day when she was oh so young
    It wasn't any Christmas day but that was what was done
    This troll doll is on my wall and I see it everyday
    The thoughts I have remind me of that one old precious day

    I wish I had a time machine to visit days gone by
    I would visit her at her old school and she would say "Dad, Hi!"
    We would have a walk and have a talk to show me her new things
    And then she would tell me that "I have some brand new games"

    Now at this time I just pretend as I walk on down the road
    Her picture is in my pocket now with memories that I know
    When I look out my front door and I see my brand new street
    I know it's not what we once had when we would then so meet

    If you are young then you won't know what this all may mean
    When you get old then you will see exactly what I've seen
    Some people may not know these things that I have had to say
    I cherish those fond times we had as they went by day-by-day

    "Miss Ellie" sounds like a school teacher name. :)

    I love Peter Paul & Mary. They're one of my favorite groups of all time. And I'll use this conversation as an excuse to post another of their songs. :D

    EDIT: Before Chipgallo beats me to it, I better say that it isn't really their song. It was written by Bob Dylan in 1962

    Blowin' in the Wind sounds like another good candidate for joker and degrading lyrics. Maybe Miss Ellie can work her magic and provide us with a hilarious rendition.

    What's this thread called - 'I apologise to Peter, Paul & Mary'? Well, I believe it's they who should be doing the apologising - for all the dreadful 'music' they've inflicted on us. :hide:

    Not a school teacher but a wild woman who enjoys stirring up a little trouble from time to time.

    I think a little drop of this and that makes for a good pot of trouble. Added a little wit and wisdom and we could take over the world.

    I wish I had a dollar
    For every song I've sung
    Every bar I've played in
    While people sat there drunk...

    By special request... Not the best but it is done... may the singers of decades past forgive me...

    How many ethics conditions must a man work through
    Before you call him a forgiven?

    How many needles must an auditor float
    Before she sleeps in a bed?

    Yes, 'n' how many times must the reges lie
    Before they're forever up stat?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin' in Clearwater
    The answer is blowin' in Clearwater

    Yes, 'n' how many years can an emergency exist
    Before it ceases to exist?

    Yes, 'n' how many times can some people blow
    Before they're allowed to be free?

    Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head
    And pretend that Scientology is the answer?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin' in Clearwater
    The answer is blowin' in Clearwater

    Yes, 'n' how many times must a man look up
    Before he can see the lie?

    Yes, 'n' how many tears must one family have
    Before they can stop disconnecting?

    Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till the world knows
    That too many people have died?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin' in Clearwater
    The answer is blowin' in the Clearwater

    My dear friend and esteemed colleague, I don't often hit the poop button but on behalf of my buddies who served in Vietnam I'll not let anyone dissing Puff The Magic Dragon, one of nicest friends any poor grunt ever had, pass unmarked

    Me? Diss Puff the Magic Dragon? I did no such thing. I simply said Pedo Peter, Paul & Mary were crap, songs about heroin notwithstanding.
