Jarvis Cocker – Black Magic lyrics
I woke up in the morning
And all the bells were ringing
My eyes could see the glory, baby

Could hear the song they're singing
You only get to see the light
Just one time in your life oh, black magic

That blows your mind away
And takes you somewhere that you wanna stay
You only get to stay one day, oh, that cold black magic

Is there anything more wretched
Than to just have caught one sight?
The eyes that saw the glory have been, have been blinded by the light

And it's the true believers that crash and burn
But there ain't no way I'm ever gonna learn
Black magic

That blows your mind away
And takes you somewhere that you wanna stay
Oh, you only get to stay one day, oh, that cold black magic

We can't escape, we're born to die, but I'm gonna give it a real good try
Because nothing comes close and nothing can compare
To black magic yeah, yeah, yeah

Black magic
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Black magic
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Black magic
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Black magic
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Black magic
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Black magic
Yeah, yeah, yeah...
