Track Name: Dobby Bang Your Head (2014 Studio Mix)
All summer you stole my letters G C
I think that you had better G C
Tell me what you thought that would do-oo-oo G C D
The Dursleys were entertainin’ G C
You started levitatin’ G C
That pudding and now I’m out of schoo-oo-ool G C D
And then I jumped aboard Em D
the Weasleys flying Ford Em D
With Ron George and Fred C
And Dobby just banged his head D

Dobby (dobby dobby) C
Bang your head G
Yeah Dobby (dobby dobby) C
Bang your head G
This mental elf will drive you mad. C D G

I was playin in a quidditch game
Malfoy tryin to do the same
Bludger started chasin after me-ee-ee
Started flyin all through the bleachers
Something burnin- it’s a teacher
What you doin Miss Hermione-ee-ee?
Then Lockhart worked his charm
Got no bones in my arm
I’m lying in this bed
And Dobby, just banged his head.

(bop-bops, same as first part of verse) G C G C G C D x2
Then we got in a fix done in by Bellatrix Em D Em D
And now that Dobby’s dead C
He cant bang his own head D

(talking) D

Now I’m a wizard rock star G C
Drums, bass, electric guitar G C
And Dobby’s gone, but that’s okay-hey-hey G C D
I know his spirit lives on G C
Rocks out - with me and Ron G C
He helps us wrock the night away-hay-hay G C D
‘Cause when I play each show Em D
He’s there in the front row Em D
Rockin to books he’s read C
And bangin’ his head! D

Track Name: Love Song for Sirius Black (2014 Studio Mix)
I’ve watched you for so long
It seems it’s been years
I just want to hold you
And ease all your fears
I'll hold you tight
All Through the night
And cry to the heavens above
I'm in love
But I’m a dementor
A dementor in love

We’ll go for a picnic
We’ll go for a stroll
Then maybe I’ll kiss you
And suck out your soul
Oh we could be
Just you and me
I’ll call you my little Suffles
My love.
But I’m a dementor
A dementor in love

Although you’re a canine
And I am undead
I think we can make it
My sweet quadruped

I don’t mind the flea bites
I quite like your fur (rowr)
Your soul is exquisite
It makes my robe stir
So come along
Let’s end this song
I think that this crowd’s had enough
of my love song
yes I’m dementor
A dementor in love…
Track Name: No Shame in Hufflepuff (2014 Studio Mix)
There’s the noble house of Gryffindor
Those Ravenclaw’s are smart
My favorite house is Slytherin
Am D
We’re full of crafty art
There’s one more house at Hogwarts
They take all the other duffs
its hard to call it pride
G Em
but I think they’re good enough
There’s no shame in Hufflepuff
no shame in Hufflepuff.

Those Hufflepuff’s are dutiful
they’re just like everyone else
you’ll find them in wizard coffee shoppes
hanging out with house elves
they’re good at making sandwiches
and breathing and lots of other stuff
its hard to call it pride
but I think they’re good enough
there’s no shame in Hufflepuff.
no shame in Hufflepuff.

We remember Cedric Diggory
remember how he died
in that Triwizard tournament
that boy was out of line
He should have stayed at home making sandwiches
and doing all that other stuff
thought he was so cool but he wasn’t good enough
there’s no shame in Hufflepuff
no shame in Hufflepuff.

There are lots of well known Hufflepuffs
in the Potterverse
some of them are gardeners
and some of them are worse
they hang out in the kitchen making sandwiches
and pizza, and omelets full of fluff.
its hard to call it pride
but I think they’re good enough
there’s no shame in Hufflepuff.
no shame in Hufflepuff.

You got Pamona Sprout and Hannah Abbot. She married Neville wll that’s okay
Susan Bones an Ernie MacMillin, they were in the DA.
You got Justin & the Fat Friar. They’re a little bit strange.
Nymphadora, she’s a Auror. Watch her hair color change.
Track Name: Nobody Expects - updated vocals
Nobody Expects that Voldemort sleeps with a Teddy bear.
(it smells like moldy cheese) I think his name is Mr. Woobie

Nobody expects dementors to plant daisies around Azkaban
Or shape a topiary (like a llama or an emu)

Nobody expects that Lucius Malfoy gossips with his stylist,
they discuss the latest fashions (gets his hair bleached every week)

Nobody expects lame choruses to linger
Nobody expects a zany one line zinger
Nobody expects custard and fish fingers
Nobody expects the Blibbering Humdingers

Nobody expects Hermione to play an elf in DnD
4.0, chaotic evil (sometimes plays an orc online - for the Horde!)

Nobody expects that Snape goes to cup-stacking competitions
he gets beaten every time (he lacks a certain “Grace” Kendall)

Nobody expects that Viktor Krum takes ball-room dancing lessons.
he really likes the mambo. (look out Dancing with the Stars)


Nobody expects.. Firenze-to watch My Little Pony
(he sure loves that Twilight Sparkle) and he likes to brush her mane

Nobody expects. Trelawny used to be a swimsuit model
cover of Brooms Illustrated (a long, long time ago)

Nobody expects Argus Filch …to practice oil painting
It’s a correspondence course. (all those happy little trees)

Nobody expects lame choruses to linger
Nobody expects a zany one line zinger
Nobody expects custard and fish fingers
Nobody expects Random hallway singers
Nobody expects Dobby dead head flingers
Nobody expects Radar switched to Klinger
Nobody expects the Blibbering Humdingers
Track Name: Shoelace - even sexier
I met you on the stairs
I couldn’t help myself
You caught me unawares
I was confunded by your spell
And now we’re far away from Ron
I want to polish up your wand.

I want to tie your shoe
Like no one else can do
I know you want me to
I want – to tie your shoe

Let’s you and I go out
At Honeydukes I’ll eat my fill
Exploding bon-bons in my mouth
And I’ll suck your sugar quill
Lets go upstairs and make a commotion
I want taste your magic potion

I want to tie your shoe
Like no one else can do
I know you want me to
I want – to tie your shoe

Oh Harry, I’ve been waiting for you…
why don’t let me make you happy? Let
me show you what I’ve been wanting to
do for so long…

I’ll make you fly so high
Farther than your nimbus flew
Knock your socks off, lose your tie
Free your house-elf, we’ll join SPEW
Come on let’s head-up to my room
I’ll show you how I zoom your broom

I want to tie your shoe
Like no one else can do
I know you want me to
I want…
I want you.
