It's Magic

Words & Music by Sammy Cahn & Jule Styne
Recorded by Doris Day, 1948

     A9        A
You sigh, the song begins;

    AM7              Cdim     Bm7-5   E7     Bm7-5   E7     Edim    E7
You speak and I hear violins -- it's magic.

     E7    Bm7-5      E7
The stars desert the skies

    E9      Bm7-5  E7                   AM7      A
And rush to nestle in your eyes -- it's magic.

      E+    A6       Bbm7-5     Edim     E9     Edim     E7       Bm7
Without a golden wand        or mystic charms,

Bm7-5     F#m       B7    F#m7   B7 Bm7-5  E7
Fantastic things begin when I am in your arms.

 A9            A
When we walk hand in hand,

    AM7              Cdim        Bm7-5  E7     Bm7-5   E7     Edim    E7
The world becomes a wonderland -- it's magic.

E7         Bm7-5   E7
How else can I explain

         E9    E7          Bm7-5 E7       C#m7-5   F#7
Those rainbows when there is no rain? It's  mag  -  ic.

C#m7-5  F#7   Bm7-5        Dm       
Why  do  I    tell myself  

      Fdim        AM7        F#m7        B7
These things that happen are all really true,

 A      A9     Fdim    F#m
   When in my heart I know

B7    Bm7-5  E7-9     E7   A   F#m   Bm7    Bm7-5   E7    A    AM7
  The magic   is  my love for you.
