She's Got Magic (Folk-Rock)

It's about a fortune teller who falls in love with a guy who seeks her out for a "reading".... and love blossoms....and now they live in her gypsy wagon "filled with kids that seem to grow on trees"! Yeah, baby!

I saw a poster at the station
Said the carnival's in town
With an enchanting fortune-teller
Who could take a frown and turn it up-side-down
I went and found her painted wagon
Raised the knocker on her door
Suddenly, she swung it open
Saying, "I know what it is you're looking for"

Ooo, that girl's' got magic
I could see and feel it in her eyes
Ooo, that girl's got magic
Every wink and smile hides a sweet surprise

Then we held hands around a candle
Staring deep into the flame
Suddenly I had this tingly feeling
That she had somehow crawled inside my brain
She said that , "I see something tragic.
Darkness is creeping towards your life.
If you don't do exactly what I tell you,
You will never have a family or a wife"

Ooo, that girl's got magic
I could see and feel it in her eyes
Ooo, that girl's got magic
Every wink and smile hides a sweet surprise

She said, "You're going on a journey
So, close your eyes, and we'll both take a ride"
Next thing I know we're on a magic carpet
Circling the moon and streaking 'cross the sky

Then we landed on a hillside
And did the jiggerbug thru town
We got all jiggy with some giggly loving
While the music kept us spinnin' 'round and 'round
She did not use a magic potion
No secret spells or magic words
She simply wrapped her arms around me
And we took off like a pair of love-sick birds

Now we both live inside her wagon
Filled with kids that seem to grow on trees
She stills claims it comes from magic
While I still blame the jitterbug and the birds and bees

Ooo, that girl's got magic
Far beyond the Midas touch
I don't know who gave it to her
I wanna shake their hands and thank them
Shake their hands and thank them
I wanna shake their hands and thank them very much
For the magic
Oh, the magic
That girl's got magic
Oh, magic
Magic, magic, magic


Clear lead vocals

great recording on the vocals and nice voice. Sounds like Joe Cocker and fish. Rich, complex sound. Very Cajun/Louisianan sound. You also sound like Randy Newman. Produced very well. The song is very unique. Would be good in a movie. I would definitely submit this to movie submission. Toy story 4

Nice feel and hear felt vocal. Nice instrumentation. The harmonica blends well.
