"Magic Works" was a song written and performed by The Weird Sisters. It was performed at the Hogwarts Yule Ball on Christmas Day of 1994.


This one's going out to all the lovers out there.

Hold each other tight, and keep each other warm.

And dance your final dance

This is your final chance
To hold the one you love
You know you've waited long enough

So, believe
That magic works
Don't be afraid
Of bein' hurt
Don't let this magic die
The answer's there
Oh, just look in her eyes

And make your final move
Mmm, don't be scared, she wants you to
Yeah, it's hard, you must be brave
Don't let this moment slip away

Now, believe
That magic works
And don't be afraid
Afraid of bein' hurt
No, don't let this magic die
Ooh, the answer's there
Yeah, just look in her eyes

And don't believe that magic can die
No, no, no, this magic can't die

So dance your final dance
'Cause this is your final chance

Behind the scenes
