"Magic to Do" is the opening song from the musical Pippin. It was introduced by Ben Vereen in the Broadway production and performed by Northern Calloway in London. The entire song runs slightly under four minutes.

The song is sung by the Leading Player, who invites the audience to watch a show about a prince living in Charlemagne's France who is searching for fulfillment and does not know where to go in life. In the start of the song, only the Leading Player sings. Fastrada and the Chorus come in at the end.

Near the end of the song the characters go out into the audience and thank them for coming to the show.
