The Magic Store - The Muppet Movie

"The Magic Store" was written for The Muppet Movie. It is sung by Kermit the Frog and the cast when they get ready to start production on a movie after getting a Hollywood contract.

This song later served as the closing number for The Muppet Show Live.


Kermit: It starts when we're kids
A show-off in school
Makin' faces at friends
You're a clown and a fool
Doin' prat-falls and bird-calls
and bad imitations
Ignoring your homework
Is that dedication?
You work through the mirror
You're getting standing ovations

All: You're burning with hope
You're building up steam
What was once juvenilish

Miss Piggy: Is grown-up and stylish

All: You're close to your dream
Then somebody out there loves you
Stands up and hollers for more (More!)
You found a home at the Magic Store

Kermit: Why are there so many songs about rainbows

Fozzie: That's part of what rainbows do

Gonzo: Rainbows are memories

Miss Piggy: Sweet dream reminders
What is it you like to do

All: All of us watching and wishing we find it

Fozzie: I noticed you're watching, too

All: Someday you'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and...

Kermit: Life's like a movie
Write your own ending

All: Keep believing
Keep pretending
We done just what we set out to do
Thanks to the lovers, the dreamers, and YOU!
