Can you hear the music?

Can you feel the magic hanging (floating) (dancing) in the air?
Can you feel the magic? Oh yeah

Love is a mystery I can't demystify, oh no
Sometimes I wonder why we're here but I don't care

When I hear the drummer, get me in the groove
When I hear the guitar, make me want to move

Sometimes you're feeling you've been pushed around
And your rainbow just ain't here - don't you fear

When you hear the music, trouble disappear
When you hear the music ringing in your ears

Love is a mystery I can't demystify, oh no
Sometimes I'm dancing on air but I get scared

When you hear the music ringing in the ears
Can you hear the music? Oh yeah
Can you hear the drummer? Get you in the groove
Can you hear the guitar? Make you want to move
