The Lyrics

I'm never deceived by things that I cannot see
I said if a man did float then how would it be
No, this magic is lying cant do
And then I sought to
I cannot believe it, it touched my heart
I cannot deceive it. Said to myself
How shall I start
No magic shop here try Wal-Mart

Try to do magic
because to entertain is my desire
Magic, watch me now
I can make this card float without wire

I find it swell
To make a child wail sigh cry laugh and play
When I compromise with my eyes
My sewn eye for me saves the day

Doo, doo, doo ...

And when my heart it beatin' I don't endure pain
And if I would only practice, skill I would gain
Children they come to me
With hand of slight, something disappears
Some will believe it
Some will try to shake my fears

Try to do magic
because to entertain is my desire
Magic, watch me now
You're the one who sees my tongue on fire

I know so well
I can't cast a spell and then get my way
I just despise Potter guys
My heart can turn Harry to clay

Doo, doo, doo ...

And if you wanted to
Chain me to a tree
Either I will make an escape
Or make it a comedy

Try to do magic
Because to entertain is my desire
Tragic, it is bad
When my torches set the house on fire

Yes I do know
I am not graceful in any kind of way
People criticize act like spies
With the truth magic goes away

Doo, doo, doo ...

I can float a card without a wire
You're the one who sees my tongue on fire
Bad when torches set the house on fire ...
