your magic's real so why aren't you using it
you could have the world for yourself
you don't ever have to worry about losing it
the magic inside of you is infinite

when was the last time you drew a picture
when was the last time that you touched a leaf
when was the last time you tasted raindrops
on your tongue on your big long tongue

your magic's real so why aren't you using it
you could have the world for yourself
you don't ever have to worry about losing it
the magic inside of you is infinite

when was the last time that you bought a hot dog
when was the last time you swam in a pond
when was the last time that you climbed a lampost
like a monkey with a [?] tail

when was the last time that [?]
when was the last time that you told a lie
why is there a picture of a penis on your 'fridge door?
it makes me feel awkward

your magic's real so why aren't you using it
you could have the world for yourself
you don't ever have to worry about losing it
the magic inside of you is infinite

    anyway, the first question mark is "prehensile"

    General CommentI guess this is YACHT's 2nd song where he uses lyrics from David Shrigley's Worried Noodles. It don't get why he would use someone else's lyrics for the song his album is named after. He did write the opening bit, though. This song is just YACHT's interpretation of David Shrigley's poem, with his thoughts about it being the 'your magic's real' chorus.

    General Commentto mr mike:

    yacht didn't just decide to use shrigley's lyrics.

    in 2007 tomlab, a german record label, released an a double-cd called "worried noodles" which was basically shrigley's 2005 book set to music. the artists (which also include liars, tv on the radio, and grizzly bear) were asked or volunteered to do it, it was a compilation art piece.

    check it out: worriednoodles.com/

    and the songs turned out so well they decided to keep them for their own album.
