"Magic Pie" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
An extra ordinary guy

Can never have an ordinary day

He might live the long goodbye

But that is not for me to say

I dig his friends I dig his shoes

He is just a child with nothing to lose

In their minds their minds

But I'll have my way

In my own time

I'll have my say

My star will shine

'cause you see me I got my Magic Pie.

Think of me yeah that was me I was that passer by

I've been and now I've gone

There are but a thousand days preparing for a thousand years,

Many minds to educate the people who have disappeared

D'you dig my friends? D'you dig my shoes?

I am like a child with nothing to lose

My mind

    My Opinionwow you guys are so fuckin picky. "wahh i dont like the 7 minutes i want 4 minutes wahh. i dont like the chorus, *cry* *wahh* this sounds out of place, *wahhh*"
    this isn't your song and it wasn't written specifically for you. this is art, written and performed by oasis, for themselves, how they felt, what they wanted to express, etc. respect that and respect the great song that it is. this is real, true, genuine music unlike most of the shit that gets played today.
    fuckheads like you are the reason Noel and Liam have insulted and said nasty things about Americans in general, because you're picky, ignorant, and full of "rubbish". as an American myself, it's people like you that make the rest of us look bad.
    have some respect and appreciate the great music that oasis blesses us with.

    General CommentBe here now was way too long. Great songs. But the length could have been reduced. This song is great, I was only saying the chorus could be more distinctive and it could be shorter!!!!! Christ almighty who pissed in josh's cheerios? Retard!!!

    General CommentThis song is incredible! It has an amazing power behind it, it just feels good to listen to. Perhaps my favourate from Be Here Now - perhaps one of my favourate Oasis tracks ever. One of the best for a massive alcohol fueled party, beer, sun and BBQ's. But that's what Oasis are all about, isn't it.

    General CommentPersonally I don't like this song at all. Music is pretty lame, production is drug filled self obsession, like that whole album. ALL the songs on that album are a) too long and b) WAY too much layering and production. Magic Pie is the typical example. I don't think it would make any other Oasis album at all. Way too long, lame chorus, the most basic of overused chords. Anyway that's just my opinion obviously, this board should be a critique not just a love-fest.

    General CommentMany things to do, but that already been done, obvious attitudes toward daily situations, correct elections toward unexpected proposals, have the questions and never the answers, shine and not seen.

    General CommentNoel&Liam say..Magic Pie-"I sang this one and of course me and Liam had a row about it, but it's his favourite track now. The first line 'An extraordinary guy can never have an ordinary day' comes from him asking me 'How come you never get into any of the situations I get into?'. And I borrowed something from Tony Blair´s speech at the last Labour conference - 'There are but a thousand days preparing for a thousand years.'"

    General Commentthose who don't say what they mean live and die by there own swords.....simply amazing

    Noel & Liam are 2 of the best moden lyricist (spelling?). They pour themselves into every song. From supersonic to their new album, it all is and will be amazing
