Lyrics

Calvin:
Who invented music?
We'd like to shake his hand
'Cause music casts a spell on us
That we can't understand

Must be some magician
Designed the magic plan
He changed his wand to a baton
And that's how it all began

When the rhythm pounds
And the harmony sounds
And the melody rolls around

Mayo (spoken):
 Presto chango!

Calvin:
We're ten feet off the ground

Calvin and Alice:
And when the rhythm pounds
And the harmony sounds
And the melody rolls around
Right from the down beat,
We can be found
Ten feet off the ground

Katie:
When everybody puts his heart in it
Everybody plays a part in it

Calvin and Laura:
That's how music magic is made

Katie:
Everybody's toes get tappier
Everybody's feelin' happier

All:
Lighter than air
Out of his chair
Ten feet off the ground

When the rhythm pounds
And the harmony sounds
And the melody rolls around

Sidney (spoken):
Presto chango!

All:
He's ten feet off the ground!

Who invented music?
We'd like to shake his hand

That's how music magic is made
Ohhhhhhhh!
Ten feet off the ground!

(Softly) That's how music magic is made

La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
Lighter than air
Out of his chair
Ten feet off the ground
Ohhhhhhhhhhh

Right from the down beat, we can be found
Floating along on a musical sound
Out of this world and upward bound
Ten fee----eeet

Everybody puts his heart in it
Everybody plays a part in it
That's how music magic is made
Everybody's toes get tappier
Everybody's feeling happier
Lighter than air
Out of his chair
Ten feet off the ground
