terribly tragic and merrily magic
were lovers who dwelt on this earth
a victim of drama met riotous mama
a-blazing for all she was worth
.
this fellow, so tragic, spoke rudely to magic
you're splashy but done in a flash
your hocus and pocus a bit out of focus
and ultimately end up as ash
.
then magic exploded, as one does when goaded
and threw down a lecture to him
one wants to start bawling when tragedy's calling
my patience, incredibly slim
'
said tragic, i'm frightened that you're not enlightened
you think that you're queen of the hill
when perched on the summit, you're shaky, dadgummit
with nowhere but down when you spill
.
then magic said, darling, let's stop all this snarling
you know i'm dependent on you
it's you i am needing, a bandage when bleeding
i'm helpless and haven't a clue
.
then tragic embraced her, then leaned down and faced her
and promised for all of his life
to hold on to magic, for it would be tragic
if they were not made man and wife
