The Lyrics

Such a strong magus, all that might
Tearing this hut apart
Who needs candles got plenty of light
Though we're in the dark
Every time I do just like you say
Oh, but I'm still not making headway
No, I can't spell it right

You're mixing potions
For shadow and flight
(Did just like you said, magic man)
All I can make is stew
I get so discouraged
Time after time
(Help me cause I don't understand)
Want to be you

I'm just not cut out for wizardry
It must be harder than it seemed to me

Cause I can't spell it right
No, teacher, I can't spell it right
I can't spell it right

Every time I do just like you say
I'm still failing though day after day
No, I can't spell it right

Help me wizard, I can't spell it right
I can't spell it right
I can't spell it right

"I-T." Very easy.

Good song. The Eagles should've learned how to spell 'let it be' instead of their reuniting, releasing only ONE studio album and charging $100/concert ticket. they were the first band to do that and they are G-R-E-E-D-Y!
