Bowie, David - Magic Dance Lyrics




You remind me of the babe
What babe? babe with the power
What power? power of voodoo
Who do? you do
Do what? remind me of the babe

I saw my baby, crying hard as babe could cry
What could I do
My baby's love had gone
And left my baby blue
Nobody knew

What kind of magic spell to use
Slime and snails
Or puppy dogs' tails
Thunder or lightning
Then baby said
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Put that baby spell on me
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Put that magic jump on me
Slap that baby, make him free

I saw my baby, trying hard as babe could try
What could I do
My baby's fun had gone
And left my baby blue
Nobody knew

What kind of magic spell to use
Slime and snails
Or puppy dog's tails
Thunder or lightning
Then baby said
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Put that baby spell on me
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Put that magic jump on me
Slap that baby, make him free
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Put that baby spell on me (ooh)

You remind me of the babe
What babe? the babe with the power
What power? power of voodoo
Who do? you do
Do what? remind me of the babe

Dance magic, dance, ooh ooh ooh
Dance magic, dance magic, ooh ooh ooh
Dance magic

What kind of magic spell to use
Slime and snails
Or puppy dog tails
Thunder or lightning
Something frightening

Dance magic, dance
Dance magic, dance
Put that baby spell on me
Jump magic, jump
Jump magic, jump
Put that magic jump on me
Slap that baby make him free
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Jump magic, jump
Put that magic jump on me
Slap that baby
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic
Slap that slap that baby make him free
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)

Bowie, David Magic Dance Comments
  1. TheOnionQueen

    Just the best kind of acid trip.

  2. God of Evil

    I imagine Lucifer in Hazbin to be somewhat like Jareth.

  3. Griffin

    No one, *No One*, is ever going to tell me that Toby would have been unhappy in the labyrinth. Honestly. He would be the absolute luckiest kid ever. He would grow up to be a king of thousands! Just look how happy he is!! Jared is 1000% best dad.

  4. Squanch Wanch

    Jesus this is terrifying

  5. William Shakespeare 1564

    Is it slap that baby make him free or slap that baby make him breath.i dont know lol.

  6. Helen Walker

    Who I love ❤️ This song

  7. Not Cake

    Best movie, change my mind.

    I cant,this was an extremely good movie

  8. Fayth Cassady

    Ahh, when I was younger David Bowie was my first childhood crush💕💕 All bc I saw this movie

  9. ilikebunnies

    At 2:17, does anyone else think that the creature says "your mother is a frightened aardvark" ? Or is that just me?

    Griffin

    Your mother is a friggin aardvark!

  10. Lachlan Harrison

    Years later that baby would help his parents craft the creatures in the Dark Crystal AoR

  11. Gareth Wren

    You remind me of the babe

    Griffin

    What babe

  12. InYourFaceNewYorker

    How did they think people would react to seeing David Bowie's package in this movie besides laughing?

  13. morenote 888

    Alguien sabe que es lo que dice el chino? (( 2:10 )) Eso es algo que siempre me pregunté XD

    PD: si alguien tiene problemas con que hable español sabe dónde se puede meter su opinión :V

  14. It´s over 9k!

    David is the only man who can wear a leggings like this and a haircut like this.RIP

  15. Joshua Collins

    David Bowie is why I can still watch this as an adult. The man should have gotten more movie roles.

  16. Julia R.

    You remind me of the babe (what babe?)
    The babe with the power (what power?)

    What could I do?
    My baby's love had gone
    And left my baby blue

  17. G.Phillips

    The infamous "Bowie Bulge" every Women's dream, and every Mans envy. Both sexes have a "hard" time getting over the awkward Bulge appearance when singing "Dance Magic Dance"

  28. HaruMan Alphaessence

    TheSilverSwan

    @Piper Katakoo I don't have access to the movie 😜

    Griffin

    He wanted a son. No one will convince me otherwise lol. Just let him be dad ;w;

  49. WillowAmy

    They showed us this movie in primary schools and I went home crying because I thought the goblin king was going to take my little brother away I was only 9 years old, and now I'm 15 😂

  50. Elijah Ruppert

  52. Richard hoof

    Puhpeedawgtaihls

  53. Aislynn Mahama

    I swear this whole film was someone's fever dream that they turned into a nonsensical script. I love it so much.

  54. Arjalineck

    The 2k people who disliked this video must have fallen into the bog of eternal stench

    Brandi Kae

    I have to agree with you

  55. plasticweapon

    should have been called "magic pants".

  56. Mily Gálvez

    💓😍😻😻😻😻😻😻

  57. Candy Sith

    He said, "Well?!" and I realized I was laughing. With the goblins. Like a goblin. I stopped.

  58. shepjn

    God I remember I wore out the betamax tape and had to beg and plead with the parents to record it again, and again, and again.....

  59. Carter_208 •

  64. Kendall Jones

  65. kab hes

    fun fact the only instruction that most puppeteers got for this scene was: act like a goblin.

  66. Iszzabella Heningburg

    He is so fucking cue and sexy grrrrr

  67. Vinicius Tavares

    Why does he wanted that baby so much? I know he made a deal with the girl but like, what does he gain from having that baby?

    Piper Katakoo

    He was the only thing that made Sarah stay there for so long. If the baby’s wasn’t there she’d have no reason to be in the labyrinth.

  80. kamikazemind327

    I seriously wish they made movies like this still!!! The artistry that goes into this is out of this world! 💜

  81. Hiroyuki Heisosumi

    I worked at a Halloween store this year. It's great but you,listen to the same soundtrack of songs every day. It loops after about 2 hours. One day I was feeling tired and this song mysteriously inserted itself into the play list. I instantly had 100% energy restored and was dancing around not caring what anyone thought. Epic.

  82. Ana Panic

    3:12 oh,yessss

  83. Jason Tachin

    RW:please tell me when he tossed that baby in the air that was a doll.😖🙏

  84. Jason Tachin

  91. Tito

    I love Jareth's boots. I would kill to own a pair like that.

  92. Redbock 99

    I absolutely love this film
    I remember watching this with my aunt

  93. Metarcee 24

  94. poochie palooty
