Mr Magic

Composer: Jay Chou (周杰倫) (周杰伦)
Lyricist: Vincent Fang (方文山) (方文山)


G Power: Hey Jay, this music of yours makes me want to do magic, great, I just, let me tell you, learnt an amazing trick, want to see?
Jay: Yea.
G Power: Really? OK, are you even listening?
Jay: I have been, and then?
G Power: I'll tell you, it's very simple, with your left hand gently hold onto your nose.
Jay: And then?
G Power: And then with your right hand, oh, it's very simple, pass it through your left hand
Oh, but it might be a bit more suitable to have some music right now
Eh, a bit slower, a bit slower, OK, go find a mirror now, oh, look up, you've become an elephant!

You put your hand up
You raise your head
You say, pick me pick me
My hands are locked up
I break out again
You still have a baffled face
Blow a bit
Loosen my hand
That coin unexpectedly disappears
A bow
That applause
With fierce clapping

My hand criss-crosses
A gentle touch
The ring moves from one hand to another
Giving the audience
A dream
They smile with astonishment
My hand goes through the poster but I don't grab the hamburger
Instead I take out the cowboy hat
You'll never guess it

Every time I perform body levitation onstage
You secretly eat my cream puffs offstage
Wait until the dove flies out
Then we'll clear things up about love

Oh, reading you, reading you, reading you
What you thinking about
I use a classical method to force the cards
My technique is exquisite
An Elmsley Count pose worth full marks
Who says you shouldn't go for a magician to date
I don't need to explain
That's why he's the clown and I'm the master

You put your hand up
You raise your head
You say, pick me pick me
I change the colour of the card
I change it to your choice
To make the Statue of Liberty disappear
Is not rare
101
It'll be strange if that disappears

I spread my hands open
In the hat
I can always make cards appear from my empty hands
No matter how many times you cut the cards
I can always cut it back
My hand goes through the poster but I don't grab the hamburger
Instead I take out the cowboy hat
You'll never guess it

Don't ask me at the end of it all what's actually real
The feelings I've made appear for you to see are what's real
Because every minute and every moment I only want you to be happy

Oh, reading you, reading you, reading you
What you thinking about
I use a classical method to force the cards
My technique is exquisite
An Elmsley Count pose worth full marks
Who says you shouldn't go for a magician to date
I don't need to explain
That's why he's the clown and I'm the master

Oh, reading you, reading you, reading you
What you thinking about
I use a classical method to force the cards
My technique is exquisite
An Elmsley Count pose worth full marks
Who says you shouldn't go for a magician to date
I don't need to explain
That's why you don't have to bother
Don't bother about it
Don't bother about it

Oh, reading you, reading you, reading you
What you thinking about
I use a classical method to force the cards
My technique is exquisite
An Elmsley Count pose worth full marks
Who says you shouldn't go for a magician to date
I don't need to explain
That's why he's the clown and I'm the master
