Magic Wand

By Chris Rice:

He rode his wagon into town
A gaudy spectacle-
And every grey November brought him there.
Always entertaining,
Prestidigitating,
Pulling rabbits from thin air...

He would wave his magic wand, he would say the magic words,
Workin' up a miracle, puttin' on a show.
Changin' what I thought to be
Unchangeable reality,
Wish I had a magic wand of my own!!

Now 23 Novembers later, the prestidigitator
Still holds a power in my mind.
'Cause I'd like a quick and easy way, to look inside and make a change,
A magic wand would do me fine!!

I would wave my magic wand, I would say the magic words,
Workin' up a miracle, puttin' on a show.
Changin' what I thought to be
Unchangeable reality,
If I had a magic wand of my own-

I would wave it over you, and over me
And over all this crazy world and make it right.
OH, there's so much I'd change if I could take the easy way!!!

I would wave my magic wand, I would say the magic words,
Workin' up a miracle, puttin' on a show.
Changin' what I thought to be
Unchangeable reality,
Wish I had a magic wand of my own!

The only way to really change is simple choices, every day
Obey the Spirit's whisper in your soul.

Without a magic wand He'll work a miracle...
Without a magic wand He'll work a miracle...
Without a magic wand He'll work a miracle!!

I would wave my magic wand, I would say the magic words,
Workin' up a miracle, puttin' on a show.
Changin' what I thought to be
Unchangeable reality,
Wish I had a magic wand of my own!

(Note: I am sure Wings will be extatic over my listening choice during melancholy, and moody moments. I believe that my memory has run away with the last part of the last verse...but it'll do for now!!

You love to post songs or verse, don't you?

Warbler said...

I guess they are the easiest to put out, and I have a couple tretises that are in-the-making. It just takes so much more time. %(

Yes! I know what you mean. I do the same thing. I'm not sure exactly what I want to do with my blog, so in the mean while I put songs/poems if I'm going to put anything.

By the way, Warbler, I'll probably post sometime agian on my blog, just don't have anything I urgent to post and don't have a lot of time.

Oh, yes, and the above was me, Anna.

Warbler said...

Where did you find me from?

Rachel said...

where have you been, warbler? you haven't been on mkP in about a million years!

Josiah K. Walters said...

Rachel, exaggeration of any kind is my abhorrence.

Warbler said...

Rache- I voluntarily removed myself from mkP. I still encourage others to get on it, though, and still want to go to all the reuinons.

Also...I am glad to have finally found out how long a million years was. (p.s-check the "say something about the next poster" thread)

uh, how about her brother's blog?? you seem to underestimate people's skills on the internet, Jen! :D

interpretation= that was an inside joke about her thinking i can't find something that she found or made online. i do find it. and within about 3 minutes, i'd like to add. :)

Warbler said...

Yes, in 3 min. AFTER I told you where to link it from first (her blog)

Also, I know HOW she got to me...I just wondered from WHICH path of the ones I gave her.

Rachel said...

oh, that's sad, Jen! I'll have to find some way of communicating with you other than commenting on your blog.

I believe I first came to your blog through Jon's, Warbler.
