"Just Because It's Magic" is the song sung by the Blue Fairy (and partially by the title protagonist in the original) of the movie Geppetto, who asks her to solve his problems with Pinocchio with her magic, but she refuses and says he has to solve it himself.

Lyrics (Original)

Blue Fairy: Everybody nowadays
Is looking for a quick fix.
Everybody moans and prays
For a magic trick fix.

"Cast your spell.
Wave your wand.
Make my wish come true."
But they seldom look beyond.
Then what will they do?
They don't have a clue.
Like you-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!

Just because it's magic
Doesn't mean it's easy.
Just because it's magic
Doesn't mean your life is solved.
When you get the thing for which you've yearned
You will find your yearning has returned.
Happy is the man who's finally learned,
Happy endings must be earned.
Just because it's magic
Doesn't mean contentment.
Even with enchantment,
There are bound to be some flaws.
"Why can't it be perfect now?" you sigh.
Honey, I'll be glad to tell you why.
It takes more than magic.
Why?
Just because.

Blue Fairy: Just because it's magic
Doesn't mean it's easy.
Just because it's magic
Doesn't mean your life is solved.

(Geppetto: Oh, beautiful fairy
With the loveliest pair of wings.
Please grant me this favor
Just a couple of tiny things.)

Geppetto: Don't take this
As ingratitude
But you really
Have an attitude.
And Pinocchio is proof
You can goof.

Blue Fairy: Just because it's magic
Doesn't mean contentment.
Even with enchantment,
There are bound to be some flaws.

(Geppetto: So,beautiful fairy,
It's time for the remedy.
Should we compel him
To do as I tell him
And want to grow up like me?)

Blue Fairy: "Why can't it be perfect now?" you sigh.
Honey, I'll be glad to tell you why.

(Geppetto: Stop glistening!
Start listening!)

Blue Fairy: It takes more than magic.
Why?
Just because.

(Geppetto: You're a very arbitrary fairy.)

You need more than magic.
Why?
Just because.

Just because.

Just because.

Reprise 1

Blue Fairy: Just because it's magic,
If you disregard it,
Doesn't mean it's tragic,
But it's really (?)

Now I know I should (?)
Still it's very obvious you'll need
Just a bit more magic...

Reprise 2

Blue Fairy: Certain people seem to lack
Certain introspection
Racing like a maniac
In the wrong direction.

Geppetto: Wrong direction? But Stromboli told me...

Blue Fairy: Oh, dear.
Though someone as of two, says you...
I'll have to engineer
Something extra-clear.
Look he-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-ere.

Blue Fairy: Frankly, you are such a stubborn hope. I'm not holding out much hope, Even with my magic, But, We'll see. We'll see. We'll see.
