The Lyrics

Because the title was too good to pass up.
"Marty, come to the mall!"
Went Doctor Brown's phone call
He got there at one fifteen
And saw the time machine
Then Lybians came, and bang!
Doc Brown was murdered; dang.
Since Marty wasn't dead
He got in and he fled;

He had gonna be a rockstar
He could play great guitar
He had plans for the lake
(With his girlfriend, out they'd make)
But now he's gone too fast
He hears a sonic blast
And then another two
And time rips
And he
Goes through

Back to Pepsi that's not free
First time runs on TV
No skateboards, he's weird there
(Though Strickland still has got no hair)
His mother in high school
She thinks that he is so cool
But he just wants back his life
In 19, 19, 1985

Bumped into his parents
There goes all his life
His dad's a wimp; and mom:
She wants to be his wife
The time machine is dry
Of plutonium supply
He goes to stalk the Doc
And gives his door a knock-

"Hi, Doc Brown; it's Marty
I came here from the future and it's your fault, you see
To prove I'm for real: I say the president
Of the good USA is
Ronald
Reagan
(yes, the actor, Doc)"

Pepsi that's not free
First time runs on TV
No skateboards, he's weird there
(Though Strickland still has got no hair)
His mother in high school
She thinks that he is so cool
But he just wants back his life
In 19, 19, 1985

Back in time; he hates it
One star out of twenty five is what he rates it
He wants to go home
He wants to exist
Please make this
Stop, stop, STOP
(tick tick tick tick tick tick)

and bring back

Skateboards, free Pepsi,
Star Wars, colour TV;
Girls working
Out at Lou's;
Huey Lewis and the News;
His girlfriend from high school
He thinks that she is so cool
And he just wants back his life
In 19, 19, 1985

Reagan, Mayor Goldie,
Future things so shiny
Rock music, graffiti
(Though gas costs more, a pity);
His house built, his family,
Functioning so dysfunction'lly
Yeah, he just wants back his life
In 19, 19, 1985.

Hello? McFly, anyone in there? Some pacing not quite 88 mph but very good overall. Enjoyed this one, nice job on a heavy OS. I have one coming out tomorrow with same OS, different topic, and it did take some work to finish.

Hey McFly! I thought I told you never to come in here! How about you make like a tree and get out of here!
