"Hoggy Warty Hogwarts"[1] was the school song of Hogwarts.[2] It was typically performed by students at the Welcoming Feast at the start of a new school year.[2]

The song apparently had no set tune, tempo, or duration.[2] In 1991, Albus Dumbledore instructed students to simply "pick their favourite tune," conjuring an animated ribbon from the tip of his wand to the write the lyrics in the air.[2] This lead to everyone finishing at different times.[2] Fred and George Weasley, who chose to sing the song as a "a slow funeral march," were the very last to finish.[2]

Dumbledore called for the school song when he was "feeling particularly buoyant."[3] It was not performed after Harry Potter's first year due to times becoming darker.[3]

"Hoggy Warty Hogwarts" lyric sheet.

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.[2]
