Little Miss Magic

by Jimmy Buffett

from the album Coconut Telegraph

Lyrics

She’s constantly amazed by the blades of
the fan on the ceiling
And the funny little faces she makes
can’t help but be appealing

I see a little more of me everyday
I catch a little more moustache turning grey
Your mother is the only other woman for me
Little Miss Magic what you gonna be

Sometimes I catch her dreaming and wonder
where that little mind meanders
Is she down along the shore or
strolling cross the broad Savannah’s
I know in time she’ll learn to make up her own mind
In time she’s gonna learn to fly
Oh that I won’t deny

I catch a little more dialogue coming my way
I see those big brown eyes turn astray
Your mother is the only other woman for me
Little Miss Magic what you gonna be

Yeah, She loves to ride through the town with the top down
Feel the warm breeze on her gentle skin
She is my next of kin

Constantly amazed by the blades of
the fan on the ceiling
And the funny little faces she makes
can’t help but be appealing
I know in time she’ll learn to make up her own mind
In time she’s gonna learn to fly
Oh that I won’t deny

I see a little more of me everyday
I catch a little more moustache turning grey
Your mother is the only other woman for me
Little Miss Magic what you gonna be

It’s raining it’s pouring
Your old man is snoring

Jimmy’s Note:

When Savannah Jane was born, my world was definitely altered. Once, when she was very small, she pointed to a spot on the globe and told me she had been a princess in China. Before she could speak I would watch her follow the blades of the ceiling fan with her big brown eyes, and I couldn’t help but to be a proud father. Besides, if you don’t write a song about your daughter, you will go to hell.
