School Song

The Hogwarts school song was sung at the end of Harry's first start-of-year feast. Professor Dumbledore conjured a golden ribbon that twisted into words for the pupils to follow and then asked each person to pick any tune and sing the song. The resultant cacophony ended up as an unlistenable noise with everybody singing in different keys, at different speeds, and finishing at different times. Notably, the Weasley twins sang along to the tune of a slow funeral march.


"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."
