"Mr Magic" as written by and Ralph Macdonald William Salter....
Every day I see you
My hands were made for you
And you always give me stress free point of view
Pick you up after school

Mister Magic, take a token
Mister Magic, of my love
Mister Magic, I see you through the smoke

Without you I'm misery
Blue without my green
All the songs sound better when you're next to me
Yeah, 'cause you come naturally

Mister Magic, take a token
Mister Magic, of my love, love, love (Mister Magic)
I see you through the smoke

Laying on my bed
I reach over for you
And you so fresh you even make the standards new
Burn the tip to get you through

Mister Magic, take a token
Mister Magic, of my love
Mister Magic, I see you through the smoke

Mister Magic
Mister Magic
Mister Magic, waiting for the smoke to clear
I'm waiting for the smoke to clear

    General CommentMr. Magic is code for weed in this song!

    -you always give me a stress free point of view
    (weed relaxes her)
    -pick you up after school
    (picking up bud from your dealer after school)
    -take a token
    (practically sounds like take a toke)


    Lyric correction:
    to me it sounds like, "blue without my green" instead of "blue with a migraine" which would make more sense, she's saying she's sad when she has no weed to smoke.

    and c'mon, we all know songs sound like the shit when you're high!

    damn Amy's so creative, this is such a bomb ass metaphor

    General Commentvery good song , a bit funny too, sometimes I think of it as of the song sung by a weed smoker. she 's high, dreaming about a perfect lover, whom she's seeing through the "smoke" ;) she believes he's true , and is waiting for the smoke to clear. but when it fades... :DDD ok that's just what I thought once, the song is great

    General CommentThe lyrics aren't printed in the liner notes, so I'm just guessing, but it sounds like "Take a toke (and) all my love." Also, I agree that it sounds like "blue without my green." Definitely a song about weed. Lovely lyrics and tune.

    General CommentI just saw a video of her singing this on YouTube and the lyrics are much easier to understand. She says "I'm blue without my green." And she definitely is singing "Take a toke, and all my love."

    There are no credits for this song in the liner notes, so I thought she wrote it, but apparently it's not original to her. Someone on YouTube said she wrote the lyrics, but I'm skeptical. You know how much misinformation is on the net!

    General Comment"but it's just to you through", i think it's "burn the tip to get you through", when you burn the roach to get the last bit of weed

    General CommentDefinitely about the love of weed. 'Blue with a migraine' were the censored lyrics it's actually 'blue without my green', Green being slang for cannabis! x

    Song MeaningThe song is definitely an amy original...roberta flak? has a credit for a song same name, different song. And if there's any doubt of the meaning...check out addicted. Amy was not afraid to sing of her live for the green...shes just genius at couching her double meanings. Genius
