Something up your sleeve



When some of the magic’s missing

No rabbit’s come out the hat

It helps if you’ve something

Hidden up your sleeve.


Some will roll their sleeves up

And just get down to work

But proper magic only comes

From something up your sleeve.


You might perform a card trick

Get by with sleight of hand

But the only way to ensure success

Is something up your sleeve.
