It was July
And we were 17
Nothin' goin' on at the Dairy Queen
So we drove to the river
And he gave me his ring
And I melted in his arms like my ice cream
And nobody knows how far we went
Except the river and me and the moon and him
Sometimes I wanna go back again
Hey girls you know what I mean
Sometimes don't you wish you had a time machine
Maggie May on the radio
On still away and the dash boards glows
I hear that song and I still melt
And it take me back to the way we felt
And nobody knows how far we went
Except the river and me and the moon and him
Sometimes I wanna go back again
Hey girls you know what I mean
Sometimes don't you wish you had a time machine

(Instrument break)

I close my eyes
And I say a prayer
And I hit that button and I'll be right there
And nobody knows how far we went
Except the river and me and the moon and him
Sometimes I wanna go back again
Hey girls you know what I mean
Sometimes don't you wish you could stay 17
Hey girls you know what I mean
Sometimes don't you wish you had a time machine
Hey girls you know what I mean
Sometimes don't you wish you had a time machine
A time machine
Oh a time machine
