The Ilvermorny school song was the alma mater of Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Lyrics

(Caw-caw, caw-caw!)
(Purr-purr!)

We stand as one united,
Against the Puritan.
We draw our inspiration
From good witch Morrigan.

For she was persecuted
By common wandless men.
So she fled from distant Ireland,
And so our school began.

Oh! Ilvermorny-Massachusetts!
We choo-choose it!
We choo-choose it!
The wizard school supreme.

Your castle walls, they kept us safe.
The days with you, a dream
You taught us all our magic
And now one thing's quite clear

Where'er we roam
Where'er we roam
Our one true home
Our one and own

Is Ilvermorny dear![1]

Behind the scenes

  • Alison Sudol wrote the melody of the song with J. K. Rowling, who created the lyrics. Alison performed it along with Katherine Waterston in the film inspired by Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but the scene was cut from the theatrical release.[1]
  • The song appears as one of the DVD extras in the deleted scenes of the film, which director David Yates had earlier stated could be a possibility. Pottermore has also posted the video.[1]
  • The school song describes how Isolt Sayre fled to North America because she was persecuted by Muggles, though she actually escaped from her magical aunt. This may be an example of a revisionist history created by a community that was under threat from "common wandless men." or it may mean that Isolt lied about her past because she didn't want it publically known.
  • The school song also describes the founding of Ilvermorny, which the Hogwarts song does not.
