Someday I’ll learn to cast a spell
And enter worlds where spirits dwell
And pull bouquets from silver canes
And free myself from ropes and chains.

I’ll make my sister hang in air
And from a hat I’ll pull a hare.
I’ll find an egg in someone’s ear
And make my brother disappear.

I’ll read the minds of folks I know
As part of my amazing show.
I’ll conjure coins with sleight-of-hand
And vanish things at my command.

I’ll saw some pesky kid in half;
Then bow and sign my autograph.
I’ll master feats of sorcery.
A modern Merlin I will be.
