Dead Flies and Bits of Fluff

"Ah, music, a magic beyond all we do here!"
~ Dumbledore

In honor of the big movie release, here are the lyrics to the Hogwarts School Song. As the song does not have a particular tune, just sing along to your favorite:

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.

Nice! I haven't seen the movie yet. And for some reason, I also seem to have missed this Hogwarts School Song in the 7-volume book that I read several years back (must be just me growing old and forgetful). Thanks for the reminder. Haha. =)
