If I had a time machine
And I could make it fly
I say take me back to xmas morning 1979
Old man winter is just around the corner
Thinking too much cuz it's december
January 24th hanging on the door knob
Never thought I'd miss you and then you were gone
And I was spending xmas all alone all alone
I was spending xmas all alone
I was full of innocence
I was full of fun
I was full of conversation when we had begun
Plastic doesn't matter when the stars are aligned
Just like the xmas that I met you back in '79
Xmas that I met you back in '79
Xmas that I met you back in '79
Plastic doesn't matter when the stars are aligned
Just like the xmas that I met you back in '79
My star wars t-shirt almost made it
But princess leia got old and faded
K-tel, barbells, dream police
Singing "i want you to want me!"


(chorus)

There ain't no presents left under the tree
And she's gotta believe I wasn't ever gonna leave
Until the swat team came and started making a mess
Brought a GI-Joe with the kung-fu grip


(chorus)
