Lyrics:

In the magic garden
Some were singing some were dancing
While the midnight moon shone brightly overhead

The stars so gaily glistened
And the sphinx in silence listened to
The magician tell of lives that he had led

 

Let the bells of freedom ring
Songs of love to Friday’s king

 

Let’s all go to
The magician’s birthday
It’s in a forest
But not so far away
Much to do
And so much to say
While we listen to
The orchid orchestra play

 

Happy Birthay to you

Happy Birthay to you

Happy Birthay to you

Happy Birthay to you

 

Happy Birthday dear Magician
Happy Birthday to you

Happy Birthday to you

Happy Birthday to you

 

Happy Birthday to you

Happy Birthday to you

 

Happy Birthday to you

Happy Birthday to you

 

Then at the dead of midnight
As we watched the dancing firelight
The air grew cold
And seemed to dull the flame
The fire died
The music faded
Filled with fear of death we waited
For now we knew
Some evil was to blame

 

I challenge you
I challenge you all
For all you own and all you know
And by all the powers of darkness
I will steal what is mine

Surrender now or face my spite
I grant you it may be Friday night
But did you know this day
Also numbers thirteen

First I give you fire
I turn your fire into a sleepy stream, Yes!
Now I give you nightmares
From your horror I’ll create a dream

You cannot fight me
For I have the sword of hate
But one thing you can’t see
My answer is simply
An impenetrable fortress
Of love, love

 

The fear went as quickly as it came
The air was clear
The fire burned again
The flames leapt
The organ played
The swans sang
To greet the day
And then we knew that
Love will find love will find love
