Sleight of Hand
Lyrics & Music by: Carly Simon, Don Sebesky
Originally released on the B side of Give Me All Night single

How does it happen
I don't know
It's so hard to understand
Now you see it
Now you don't
Is this a case of sleight of hand
Sleight of hand

Somewhere between all the red rouge
And the subterfuge
Somewhere close to the loose screws
And the taboos
And the peek-a-boos

You might find the good news
And the bad news

How does it happen
I don't know
It's so hard to understand
Now you see it
Now you don't
Is this a case of sleight of hand
Sleight of hand

Somewhere between the fantasy
And the third degree
Somewhere close to the flattery
And the jealousy
And the mystery
You might see the best and the worst of me

You might find lie's
Contradictions
Illusions
Confusions
But here it is
My gift to you
Open it with care

We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
And a happy new year

It's so hard to understand
Now you see it
And now you don't
Is this a case of sleight of hand
Sleight of hand
Sleight of hand
