He cut her in half with a shiny steel saw
He put her all back together and I was in awe
As rabbits and doves and bandannas appeared
And he pulled a quarter right out of my ear
And I turned to my dad, I said, "How’d he do it?"
And dad, he just smiled, he said, "There’s nothing to it"

It’s magic and you don’t want to know
Just how it’s done, it would ruin the show
You’ve just got to believe
‘Cause believing is what makes it happen
Oh it’s nothing but magic, magic

Now I fell in love the first time in eight grade
And I started shaving the very next day
Just walking her home made me light on my feet
And I promised her things you just wouldn’t believe
And when I asked my dad why girls had that effect
He said, "Go ask your mom, I ain’t figured it yet"

It’s magic and you don’t want to know
Just how it’s done, it would ruin the show
You’ve just got to believe
‘Cause believing is what makes it happen
Oh it’s nothing but magic, it's magic

Well, the years have been hard, the years have been kind
These last years have taken both parents of mine
Some things you can’t change with a wave of your hand
There are so many things I still don’t understand
But in a hospital gown standing next to my wife
I’m watching this miracle come into life

And it’s magic and you don’t want to know
Just how it’s done, it would ruin the show
You’ve just got to believe
‘Cause believing is what makes it happen

Oh it’s nothing but magic and you don’t want to know
Just how it’s done, it would ruin the show
You’ve just got to believe
‘Cause believing is what makes it happen
Oh it’s nothing but magic, magic yes, it’s magic
