      Lyrics for Biz Markie - "Turn Back the Hands of Time"

      This is a story about without a doubt
      When I'm done, you will all scream and shout
      They always say time is on our side
      If it is, why is it a rough ride?
      If I could save time or return to the past
      I would bring back the good times, hate to last
      Like when I was the size of Jay-Z
      Back when Ra was still with Eric be
      Remember when friends was friends, and LL had a Benz?
      And cell phones and beepers was the new trends?
      When Koch was the mayor and Reagan was the Pres?
      We listened to what other enemies said

      [Chorus]
      I wish there was somethin' made, or somethin' designed
      Where I could turn back the hands of time
      I wish there was somethin' made, or somethin' designed
      Where I could turn back the hands of time

      I know why'all remember goin' to Great Adventure
      On Labor Day on the Beach in Virginia
      The beginnin' of the summer, at Jones Beach
      When t-shirts, were ten dollars each
      Didn't matter if you had a Lex, Beamer or a Benz
      As long, as you had room for, all of the friends
      Mr. Softee came through, or the Good Humor truck
      When ice cream, was less than a buck
      If it was up to me and I could turn back the clock
      I'd bring Masterdon, Buffy, and Scott LaRock
      So please listen to my song and rhyme
      If I can turn back the hands of time

      [Chorus]

      If I could turn time back in a rhyme
      I'd bring back Bird, Magic, Jordan in their prime
      Remember the days OH, remember the days
      When they had the high-top, fade craze
      Want back Big Daddy Kane, Fresh Prince and Kid & Play
      "Ohhh, what a beautiful day!"
      When parties was parties, and clubs was clubs
      You could tell the real MC's from all the scrubs
      When havin' your own style and originality
      And your character and real personality
      But I have to go, and off I sign
      If I can turn back the hands of time

      [Chorus]

      I wish there was somethin' made
      Bring back Aaliyah! (Jam Master Jay)
      I wish there was somethin' made to bring back Biggie and Tupac
      I wish there was somethin' made to bring back Scott LaRock
      I wish somethin' bad, I wish there was somethin made
      to bring back, Left Eye (Barry White)
      I wish there was somethin' to bring back my man Dahsil Masterdon
      I wish there was somethin' made to bring back my man Keith Cowboy
      My man B.O., my man Step from Baltimore
      I wish there was somethin' to bring back
      All the strange people that I knew that, was a part of my life
      (For all of our loved ones that have passed away)
