Tune

The Hogwarts school song, was, at times, performed by students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry before the beginning of the first term of a new school year. Fred and George Weasley were known to sing it to "a slow funeral march" in 1991.

LyricsEdit

Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts,
Teach us something please,
Whether we be old and bald,
Or young with scabby knees,
Our heads could do with filling,
With some interesting stuff,
For now they're bare and full of air,
Dead flies and bits of fluff,
So teach us things worth knowing,
Bring back what we've forgot,
Just do your best, we'll do the rest,
And learn until our brains all rot.
