  • The candyman's complaining he can't get the blood off his hands
    He can't tell the difference between friends and powder fans
    Hooked on what they're given, so they just won't go away
    Gave them his umbrella, took it back on a rainy day

    Char De Ville's complaining, 'bout the things we shrug away
    Realised it matters, when your heart gets stolen away
    Not the things he didn't do, the things he didn't say
    Hanging on that look he gave her, stay in touch now

    Each of them complaining about the situation
    That they both know oh so well
    Now each of them complaining 'bout his chosen vocation
    But I'm not dealing with scum like you

    And it's just a case of tragic magic
    When you can't remember feeling fantastic
    Just another case of tragic magic
    The dealer remembers more than the man

    And not alot of people have the problems that they do
    Off load all your troubles they'll come running back to you
    This life is a puddle but the goodness does occur
    So steal another shaving of the sultan's cook

    Keep on complaining, move in to the sadness lane
    Come around and sing with me
    Make everyone ecstatic using the chromatic scale
    That no-one sings round here

    And it's just a case of tragic magic
    When you can't remember feeling fantastic
    Just another case of tragic magic
    Remember you're no more than the man
    The dealer remembers more than the man
    More than the man

    And you know I'd ask you, but I already know the answer
    You'll say "No" and call me a chancer
    And you know I'd ask you, but I know what you'll say
    You don't take no prisoners with scum like me

    And it's just a case of tragic magic
    When you can't remember feeling fantastic
    Just another case of tragic magic
    When you can't remember feeling fantastic

    Oh it's just a case of tragic magic
    When you can't remember feeling fantastic
    Just another case of tragic magic
    When you can't remember feeling fantastic

    Just another case of tragic magic
    When you can't remember feeling fantastic
    Just another case of tragic magic
    The dealer remembers more than the man
    Remember you're no more than the man
    No more than the man

    With the tragic magic
    You'll never feel fantastic
