  • The Super Cool Thing I Did Today (Harry Potter Themed)

    Date: 2011.08.17 | Category: Uncategorized | Response: 2

    So like a super cool person I’ve been focusing on something I am quite passionate about: Harry Potter. Early entry for Pottermore during it’s Beta testing is going on right now and yours truly is able to count herself among those who have not been let in yet–I hope I can update this tomorrow stating something else. Anywho, while waiting to enter what may be the most awesome thing ever I have found a group of Potterheads (super big fans of the Harry Potter series) and we have been comforting each other while we continue to wait.  Well, today it got a little quiet in our group and I started doing parodies of two songs. I had help with one person who I will keep nameless  for her privacy, but if she ever would like that changed, then I shall gladly update this post. Without further ado, here are the Harry Potter parodied songs:

    “When I’m Sixty-four” – The Beatles

    When I’m Prof.  Dumbledore

    When I get older tucking my beard,
    Many years from now,
    Will you still be sending me a valentine
    Cursed necklaces, bottle of wine?

    If I’d been out when you needed me
    Would you lock the door,
    Will you still heed me, will you still believe me,
    When I’m Prof. Dumbledore?

    oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oooo
    You’ll be older too, (ah ah ah ah ah)
    And if you say the words,
    I could save evil you.

    My Deluminator you can use
    When your lights have gone.
    Reading knitting patterns by the fireside
    Sunday mornings go for a fly.

    Doing the garden, degnoming the weeds,
    Who could ask for more?
    Will you still heed me, will you still believe me,
    When I’m Prof. Dumbledore?

    Every school year we can study magic
    In the Hogwarts Castle, if it’s not too dear
    We shall toil and play
    First years come to Hagrids knee.
    Lily, James, and Snape

    Send me a howler, drop me an owl,
    Stating point of views.
    Indicate precisely what you mean. By the way
    My hand’s simply decaying away.

    Please start remorsing, change your ways
    Love power evermore
    Will you still heed me, will you still believe me,
    When I’m Prof. Dumbledore?

    Whoo!

    “Don’t Stop Believin’” – Journey

    Don’t Stop Thinkin’ (created with assistance)

    Just a bushy-haired girl, livin’ in a lonely world
    She took the Hogwarts train goin’ to wizard school
    Just over-siblinged boy, later thought to have Spattergroit
    He took the Hogwarts train goin’ to wizard school

    A teacher in a dungeon room
    A smell of spleen and daisy root
    In a while it’ll brew green bright
    Simmering on and on and on and on

    Strangers celebrate, up and down the boulevard
    Their robes all colors so bright
    Muggle people, living just to find emotion
    Wizards somewhere happy in the night.

    Working hard to my master’s will,
    He’s got an evil plan for me to fill
    Hoping Harry takes my advice,
    Safe one more time
    Some will win, some will lose
    Some were born to moan the blues
    Oh, the year it never ends
    It goes on and on and on and on

    Strangers celebrate, up and down the boulevard
    Their robes all colors so bright
    Muggle people, living just to find emotion
    Wizards somewhere happy in the night.

    Don’t stop thinkin’
    of that happy feelin’
    Dementors comin’

    Patronuuuuu-uuuus

    Don’t stop thinkin’
    Hold on
    Dementors comin’

    Patronuuuuu-uuuus

    Don’t stop thinkin’
    Hold on to the feelin’
    Dementors comin’

    Patronuuuuu-uuuus

    I’m very proud of both those songs. Trying pulling up YouTube versions of each and reading along :-)
