The Lyrics

Can't help but think of Magic the Gathering every time I hear the "Magic Baby!" part of the OS
No more layin' down the wrong land
Playin’ with a different color
Can't you see what's goin' on
Deep inside your deck?

Always searchin' for the real thing
Shuffling your library
Just leave all the madness in your graveyard
You have all the mana when you believe it

Play with me
I built a brand new deck
I’m playing magic
I bet you think you can’t beat me
Red, white, blue, artifact, green, black
Y’know my girlfriend’s a lie, (on my own)

We'll be stayin’ up past midnight
playin’ till the risin' sun
Livin' like we've never had a girl
Goin' all the way

Really hard to kill your creatures
Counterspellin’ every card
The comic book store is right where we are
There's no summoning sickness from what I'm casting

Play with me
I built a brand new deck
I’m playing magic
I bet you think you can’t beat me
Red, white, blue, artifact, green, black
Y’know my girlfriend’s a lie, (on my own)

'Coz there'll be enchantments all night
When we play together
Rather be seeing girls dancin' on the poles…
Tonight with twenty life
Playin' till the mornin' light

Play with me
I built a brand new deck
I’m playing magic
I bet you think you can’t beat me
Red, white, blue, artifact, green, black
Y’know my girlfriend’s a lie, (on my own)

Play with me
I built a brand new deck
I’m playing magic
MAGIC BABY!

I bet you think you can’t beat me
Red, white, blue, artifact, green, black
Y’know my girlfriend’s a lie, (on my own)
