Lyrics

She looked at him one day, he chased my blues away
Chased the blues away with his sweet smile
She never dreamed she’d meet a man so fine
There was something in his style

Mister Magic
Where have you gone?
Mister Magic
You turn me on

He put his hands on her he kissed her tenderly
Kissed her tenderly and held her tight
She’d give up anything that she possess
Just to have him here tonight

Mister Magic
Where have you gone?
Mister Magic
You turn me on

She threw away her pride, she sat right down and cried
Sat right down and cried
And just like magic powder, she took one
Now I don’t know what to do

Mister Magic
Where have you gone?
Mister Magic
You turn her on

Mister Magic…
