MAGIC GIFT, THE
(Connie Pearce / Arnold Miller)
as recorded by June Christie
with orchestra conducted by Pete Rugolo
My true love gave me a bright pair of magic glasses,
When I put them on all the world was filled with beauty,
And an enchanted seashell he held to my ear,
So beautiful music was all I could hear.
My true love gave me a rose with a spell upon it,
With it in my hand all I touched was soft and silken.
All of my wishes granted, I dreamed through the day,
No sad sight, no weeping, no thorn in my way.
My true loved called me to come to him in the evening,
When I saw his face all the world was filled with beauty.
His every word was music, his touch seemed to say
That life is for living and toys are for play.
So better beloved than bewitched will I be,
For truly he gave the magic gift of love to me.
