It’s Magic

Writer(s): Sammy Cahn / Jule Styne
Number 2 in 1948, Competing versions by Dick Haymes (#9); Gordon MacRae (#9); Tony Martin (#11); Sarah Vaughn (#11); and Vic Damone (#24), sung by Doris in her film debut: “Romance On the High Seas”

You sigh, the song begins, you speak and I hear violins, it’s magic
The stars desert the skies and rush to nestle in your eyes, it’s magic
Without a golden wand or mystic charms,
Fantastic things begin when I am in your arms
When we walk hand-in-hand, the world becomes a wonderland, it’s magic
How else can I explain those rainbows when there isn’t rain? It’s magic
Why do I tell me myself these things that happen are all really true
When in my heart I know the magic is my love for you?
