Sing It from the Rooftops

  All together now!

'And Odo the hero,

 they bore him back home

 To the place that he'd known as a lad.

 They laid him to rest

 with his hat inside out

 And his wand snapped in two,

 which was sad.’

 

  Okay, that’s enough of that. But I think we are in need of some new songs to elevate with our… Unique voices. So, I’d like you to re-write part or all of a muggle song so that it commemorates the exploits of a lesser known wizarding hero.

 

Things to Keep in Mind:

You need not do the entire song (unless you want to) but please make sure the section you pick is at least 12 lines long.

Actually put some work in: I won’t award you anything if you’ve just switched a few words around

Make sure the original song is entirely HOL appropriate

Credit the song name and artist of the one you’re using

Bring earmuffs

 

  Post your songs below. You can complete this task up to 4 times; you’ll receive 20 beans per song (25 if you get them in by October 22nd). The deadline is, as ever, the 31st of October.

I used to hide in corridors and hold my breath
Scared to talk in class and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely
I guess that I forgot I had a voice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I just did my homework, so I fell for everything

 

You held me down, but I got up (hey!)
Already brushing off Quidditch dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready 'cause I had enough
I see it all, I see it now

 

I got the eye of the lion, fighter
Dancing through the fire
'Cause I am a champion, and you're gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
'Cause I am a champion, and you're gonna hear me roar!

 

Loosely re-worked from Katy Perry's Eye of the Tiger.  I think this song represent Ginny Weasley because she was so docile as first and then turned into this magic wielding rockstar.

Hear a cry and do not die

Gulliver Pokeby, an excellent magizoologist

Was the very best of magical fauna biologists

No Grim Reaper, it just means the rain’ll come quicker

Why I didn’t die when Augurey cried?
