"You Can Do Magic" as written by and Ballard....
I never believed in things that I couldn't see
I said if I can't feel it then how can it be
No, no magic could happen to me
And then I saw you

I couldn't believe it, you took my heart
I couldn't retrieve it, said to myself
What's it all about
Now I know there can be no doubt

You can do magic
You can have anything that you desire
Magic, and you know
You're the one who can put out the fire

You know darn well
When you cast your spell you will get your way
When you hypnotize with your eyes
A heart of stone can turn to clay
Doo, doo, doo

And when the rain is beatin' upon the window pane
And when the night it gets so cold, when I can't sleep
Again you come to me
I hold you tight, the rain disappears
Who would believe it
With a word you dry my tears

You can do magic
You can have anything that you desire
Magic, and you know
You're the one who can put out the fire

You know darn well
When you cast your spell you will get your way
When you hypnotize with your eyes
A heart of stone can turn to clay
Doo, doo, doo

And If I wanted to
I could never be free
I never believed it was true
But now it's so clear to me

You can do magic
You can have anything that you desire
Magic, and you know
You're the one who can put out the fire

You know darn well
When you cast your spell you will get your way
When you hypnotize with your eyes
A heart of stone can turn to clay
Doo, doo, doo

You're the one who can put out the fire
You're the one who can put out the fire
You're the one who can put out the fire

    General Commentthis song makes me think of a skeptic who falls for a hottie whos a tarot card reader or a gypsy or a parlor magician. he admits she can do magic cause she "magicly makes him feel so good"....awww isnt that sweet. Ive always liked america. the band is american by right, but they grew up in england because thier air force dads were stationed there. ive been in the air force for about 9 years now, so i thought that was way cool when i learned that fact
