IT'S MAGIC
(Tim Bays / Dave Allen)

He cut her in half
With a shiny steel saw
He put her all back together
And I was in awe

As rabbits and doves and bandanas appeared
And he pulled a quarter right out of my ear
I turned to my dad, I said, ĎHowíd he do it?í
And dad, he just smiled, he said, ĎThereís nothing to it.Ē

Itís magic and you donít want to know
Just how itís done, it would ruin the show
Youíve just got to believe
ĎCause believing is what makes it happen
Oh itís nothing but magic

Now I fell in love the first time in 8th grade
And I started shaving the very next day
Just walking her home made me light on my feet
And I promised her things you just wouldnít believe
And when I asked my dad why girls had that effect
He said, ĎGo ask your mom, I ainít figured it yetí

Itís magic and you donít want to know
Just how itís done, it would ruin the show
Youíve just got to believe
ĎCause believing is what makes it happen
Oh itís nothing but magic

Well the years have been hard, the years have been kind
These last years have taken both parents of mine
Some things you canít change with a wave of your hand
So many things I still donít understand
But, in a hospital gown, standing next to my wife
Iím watching this miracle come into life

Itís magic and you donít want to know
Just how itís done, it would ruin the show
Youíve just got to believe
ĎCause believing is what makes it happen
Oh itís nothing but magic and you donít want to know
Just how itís done, it would ruin the show
Youíve just got to believe
ĎCause believing is what makes it happen
Oh itís nothing but magic
Yes, itís magic
