"Take The Time Machine To New Orleans"

I've only been to New Orleans once for three or four days. 
I had the flu the whole time, 
and never left the bed in our motor home. 
I said this to Misty: 
"So this is Dew Orleads." 

Even so I seem to write a lot of songs about it. 
I think it's the mystique... 
the idea of The Big Easy. 
And I like the music. 

I hope that place of dreams rises again, 
even if I never get to go. 
I just want to know New Orleans is there. 

Maybe I'd go right now... 
if I only had a time machine. 

Here's a song... 

TIME MACHINE. 

If I had a Time Machine 
I'd fill the tank with gasoline 
And then I'd crank it up and set the dial for yesterday 
Bells would ring and lights would light: 
Red, and green and pink and white 
And my machine and I would fly away 

If I had a Time Machine 
To take me back to New Orleans 
We could play those old love scenes again. 
I wish I may, I wish I might 
Spend no more lonely days and nights 
Everything would be alright 
If I had a Time Machine. 

And, if the day should come again 
You'd leave me without a friend 
That's not as bad as it may seem 
Id head on out to my garage 
Move my '57 Dodge 
And brush the cobwebs off my Time Machine 

If I had a Time Machine 
To take me back to New Orleans 
We could play those old love scenes again. 
I wish I may, I wish I might 
Spend no more lonely days and nights 
Everything would be alright 
If I had a Time Machine.
