{Hi, my name is Bob, and I approve this message}

[Chorus: Rivers Cuomo]
I got the magic in me
Everytime I touch that track it turns into gold
Everybody knows I've got the magic in me
When I hit the flow the girls come snappin' at me
Now everybody wants some presto magic

Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic
I got the magic in me!

[Verse 1:]
These tricks that I'll attempt will blow your mind
Pick a verse, any verse, I'll hypnotise you with every line
I'll need a volunteer, how about you, with the eyes?
Come on down to the front, and stand right here and don't be shy
I'll have you time-travellin', have your mind babblin'
People tryna inherit the skill so they askin' me
Even David Blaine had to go and take some classes, and
I see Mindfreak like, "What's up man, what's happenin'? "
So come one, come all, and see the show tonight
Prepare to be astounded, no Ghost or Poltergeist
You know I'm no Pinocchio, I've never told a lie
So call me Mr. Magic Man, I float on Cloud 9

[Chorus: Rivers Cuomo]
I got the magic in me (I got the magic, baby)
Everytime I touch that track it turns into gold (Yes it turns to gold)
Everybody knows I've got the magic in me (I got the magic, baby)
When I hit the flow the girls come snappin' at me (They be snappin' baby)
Now everybody wants some presto magic

Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic
I got the magic in me!

[Verse 2:]
Well take a journey into my mind
You'll see why it's venom I rhyme
Stay on the road, so I call my mama when I got time
I hit the stage, go insane, then jump into that crowd
See, see, when I rhyme I flow on the beat like pidda-dow-dow
See I decieve you with my intergalactic ether
I sing just like Aretha, so respect me like I'm Caesar
I kick it like Adidas, flowin' sticky like adhesive
Be cautious, 'cause what I be on'll leave you with amnesia
I break all the rules like Evel Knievel
It's a spectacular show, 'cause my heart pumps diesel
So whatever you saying, it don't entertain my ego
I do this everyday, Hocus Pocus is my steelo

[Chorus: Rivers Cuomo]
I got the magic in me (I got the magic, baby)
Everytime I touch that track it turns into gold (Yes it turns to gold)
Everybody knows I've got the magic in me (I got the magic, baby)
When I hit the flow the girls come snappin' at me (They be snappin' baby)
Now everybody wants some presto magic

Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic
I got the magic in me!

    The reason it got stuck in your head is because it is a GOOD SONG. Maybe you haven't heard one before, but this is what it sounds like.
    Thanks(:

    this song is so awesome i love wow b.o.b is AWESOME ! i love the beat i love the lyrics and i love the fact that it doesn't have any swearing in it!
    (i HATE HATE HATE songs that have swearing in them so thats why i really don't like minem because: 1: he swears in basically ALL his songs! 2: he is frickin ugly and 3: he has the worst voice for rapping.) so in other words, THIS SONG IS FRICKIN AWESOME!
    @LCAO what is up with the weird song science?

    But do neither of you understand the meaning? Few actually listen to the words and understand them.
    This entire song is occult related and has references to mind control.
    Let's take the first part. "I've got the magic in me. Every time I touch that track it turns into gold... Now everybody wants some presto magic." Some people believe that magick (the major basis of the occult) is acquired by bloodline or ablility. Thus the first sentence. The second one deals with, symbolically, the concept of alchemy. It is, to most, a false science about turning lead into gold. It is, though, much more than that. Its major focus (from what I have read) is transformation, physically, mentally, or spiritually. Thus the "track" turning into "gold." The final sentence is about the rise of the occult in recent years, people "wanting the presto magic."
    I haven't really gottten a chance to study the first verse, but it seems to be about misconcepts held by the general public about magick. Remember the "hypnotize you with every line" part.

    The second verse he actually says that he WILL deceive you. He is telling you to respect him (possibly in the form of hypnotizing). He is telling you what he wants you to do, look at the words and see for yourself.

    How did I know this song was wrong? It stuck in my head, as few songs really do. A creepy song with a creepy meaning.

    Every song has a meaning discover it on your own.

    Omg I love this song I spent about a week trying to rap it and now I can sing the whole song off by heart. It's amazing and considering it has no swearing it makes it even better as these days it's hard to find a song, apart from Pitbull, that has no swearing. I could go on about this all day but I won't. Thank you B.O.B for writing this great song!
