Lyrics

I’ll be your entertainer
I'm putting on a show
I'm gonna levitate ya
Leave you wa-wa-wanting more

I see your fascinated
I've got you hypnotized
White gloves, whatcha dream of
A fantasy before your eyes

Step right up on the stage
Free yourself from the cage
Pick a card and guess it girl
Here’s a lesson, girl
It's just an illusion

One, two, three I disappear
Coming right back, so stay right here
Ain't no second guessin’, girl
I'm impressive, girl
But I'm just an illusion

Ohhh
Uh, listen

I ain't no fake Houdini
I put a spell on you
I'm somethin’ like a genie
Girl I'll make your wish come true.

And now our time is runnin’
With every grain of sand
So here's the grand finale
Watch me do my slight of hand

Step right up on the stage
Free yourself from the cage
Pick a card and guess it girl
Here’s a lesson, girl
It's just an illusion

One, two, three I disappear
Coming right back, so stay right here
Ain't no second guessin’, girl
I'm impressive, girl
It’s just an illusion

Somewhere in a dream
We'll meet again, my baby
And I promise that I won't disappear
I'll be right here

And I won't be, won't be, won't be
Just an illusion (yeah baby!)

Step right up on the stage (on the stage)
Free yourself from the cage (from the cage)
Pick a card and guess it girl
Here’s a lesson, girl
It's just an illusion

One, two, three I disappear
Coming right back, so stay right here
Ain't no second guessin’, girl
I'm impressive, girl
It’s just an illusion

Step right up on the stage
Free yourself from the cage
Pick a card and guess it girl
Here’s a lesson, girl
It's just an illusion

One, two, three I disappear
Coming right back, so stay right here
Ain't no second guessin’, girl
I'm impressive, girl
But I'm just an illusion

Goofs

  • In the chorus Ross' voice is auto-tuned, so if Austin was (supposedly) singing it live in Albums & Auditions, there was no way he could hit that note or produce that high sound without auto-tuning.
