"Magic Dance" as written by and Bowie....
You remind me of the babe.
(What babe?)
The babe with the power.
(What power?)
The Power of voodoo.
(Who do?)
You do.
(Do what?)
Remind me of the babe.

I saw my baby, crying hard as babe could cry
What could I do?
My baby's love had gone
And left my baby blue
Nobody knew

What kind of magic spell to use
Slime and snails
Or puppy dog tails?
Thunder or lightning
Then baby said
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Put that baby's spell on me
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Put that magic jump on me
Slap that baby, make him free!

I saw my baby, trying hard as babe could try
What could I do?
My baby's fun had gone
And left my baby blue
Nobody knew

What kind of magic spell to use
Slime and snails
Or puppy dogs tails
Thunder or lightning
Then baby said:

Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance) (x4)
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump) (x2)

Put that baby's spell on me (ooh)

You remind me of the babe
(What babe?)
The babe with the power.
(What power?)
The power of voodoo.
(Who do?)
You do.
(Do what?)
Remind me of the babe

Dance magic, dance, ooh ooh ooh
Dance magic, dance magic, ooh ooh ooh
Dance magic

What kind of magic spell to use
Slime and snails
Or puppy dog tails
Thunder or lightning
Something frightening

Dance magic, dance
Dance magic, dance
Put that baby's spell on me
Jump magic, jump
Jump magic, jump
Put that magic jump on me
Slap that baby make him free
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Jump magic, jump
Put that magic jump on me

Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance
Slap that slap that baby make him free
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance) (repeat ad-lib)

    General CommentIt iiis rather funny that someone posted this on SongMeanings... I don't think it's quite one of those songs you can analyze. It's not like it's the verbalized thought process of a man pondering how to rid the world of babies by the power of dance, like some sort of Pied Piper or something.

    Aaanyway- Bowie's still hot. Even at 60, I'd take 'im.

    General CommentgJstar are you kidding? The tight pants and the big hair is why it holds appeal with girls when they finally get old enough to realize why they liked it so much. What other fairy tale features a sexy Brit rock star wearing tight pants and makeup? Okay, "Tommy" doesn't count. That's where I started my true infatuation with David Bowie. I never got into idols (and I was a preteen during the New Kids on the Block/Vanilla Ice era too), but while my friends plastered Donny, Danny, and Jordan on their walls, I had David Bowie looking down on me from my ceiling. Damn, I am beginning to fall for him all over again while I play a 5-hour mp3 block of David Bowie songs that I ripped from my CD collection on my computer...
