In the magic garden, some were singing, some were dancing
While the midnight moon shone brightly overhead
The stars so gayly glistened and the sphinx in silence listened
To the magician tell of lives that he has 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 the forest but not so far away
Much to do and so much to say
While we listen to the oaken orchestra play

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you, happy birthday 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

And at the dead of midnight, as we watched the dancing firelight
The air grew cold and seemed to dour 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 catch you, it may be Friday night
But did you know this day also number 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 Hades
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 beyond the glade, the swan sang to greet the day
And then we knew that
Love will fly
Love will fly
Love will fly
...
