I went in a time machine last night,
It gave me quite a fright.
Especially that big green dinosaur,
My mouth dropped open, in awe.
The ancient Egyptians were next,
It was hard reading that hieroglyphic text.
Rome was my next location.
I laughed at their tortoise formation.
A centurion heard me laugh.
Then he went for a Roman bath.
Next thing I know guns are firing.
Oh no! He's slowly dying.
I realised where I was, the Second World War!
The whole scene changed, look a diamond floor!
This must be the future. Yes, it is the future.
As next to me was a giant computer.
I looked up and there was a -
'But it's a Sunday!
And I haven't played on that big computer!'
'What are you talking about?
It's like your brain's clouded with steam!'
Oh! It was all a dream.
Imagine, down the line,
Who will dream of the time of mine...
