Young Johnny Steele has an Oldsmobile He loves his dear little girl She is the queen of his gas machine She has his heart in a whirl Now when they go for a spin, you know, She tries to learn the auto, so He lets her steer, while he gets her ear And whispers soft and low... Come away with me, Lucille In my merry Oldsmobile Down the road of life we'll fly Automobubbling, you and I To the church we'll swiftly steal Then our wedding bells will peal You can go as far as you like with me In my merry Oldsmobile. They love to "spark" in the dark old park As they go flying along She says she knows why the motor goes The "sparker" is awfully strong Each day they "spoon" to the engine's tune Their honeymoon will happen soon He'll win Lucille with his Oldsmobile And then he'll fondly croon...

When you took me on board, said you were a timelord, that we could go anywhere, anywhen… well you’ve got a cute toosh, lets find the lost moon of Poosh and be off on adventures again. Well you’re bossy and smug, not a bad mug, though you ain’t as hot as Jack Harkness. Oh Darlin, I don’t want the key to your hearts, just give me the key to your tardis Love’s Labour’s Won, as a show should be fun, Stop the witches before they can harm us - well you make up a rhyme, and tell it in time, and then we cast expelliarmus Well I know you’re right fond of your time lord parts, though nothin’s as long as that scarf is, Darlin’ I don’t want the key to your hearts, just give me the key to your tardis. You took me to see the greatest library in the universe, that’s what you said. But the Vashta Naradas ate ‘em like enchiladas, and now everybody is dead! On that chalkboard you scrawl, like a big know-it-all. Those glasses don’t add to your smartness Darlin’ I don’t want the key to your hearts, just give me the key to your tardis. We went on vacation, but the welcoming station said a plague had killed everyone here. In an alternate timestream, that feels like a bad dream, and was stuck here for 36 years. Well I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again but I ask that you not disregard this Oh, Darlin’ I don’t want the key to your hearts, just give me the key to your tardis. I Just want the key to your tardis. Just give me the freakin key to your Tardis...
Crashing ever forward --- the longship cuts the sea. The captain watches skyward --- for he knows what's soon to be. Dark storm clouds are rising --- from the edges of the world. The cold white sun is dying --- for the giant's axe is hurled. The world now sleeps frozen --- in winter's ice grasp. The frost giants leave the mountains --- armed with spear and axe. Storm they now the lowlands --- raging death to all. Merciful to no man --- the mightiest shall fall. And through the three year --- winter they raid with evil joy. March they now on Asgard --- Valhalla to destroy. Fimbulveter has ended. --- The crows in warning cry. The Einherjar awaken --- for Ragnorock is nigh. Odin calls to council --- all valiant gods and men. Arm themselves for battle --- for war they must attend. The massacre is final --- save those few who should survive Who've hidden in Yggdrasil --- A world they'll revive. The captain watches, tired. --- His face it shows now glee. His eyes turn slowly downward --- for he knows what's soon to be.
My mates and I were camping at the quidditch world cup The Irish sure could party they were tearing that place up When all at once we heard a noise and watched as in a dream The death eaters were marching through and making muggles scream They tore right through the campsite and they set my tent ablaze We ducked and ran for cover but then through the smokey haze I heard an incantation and could not believe my eyes Skull and snake up in the air and I heard their awful cries Crucio Cruci-ay Dark Mark in the sky Two or three years later I was with these blokes once more Carousing late in Hogsmeade when this witch burst through the door She’s yelling bloody murder and she drags us all outside She points at Hogwart’s Castle and we know that someone’s died. We ran up to the flying pigs that stand at Hogwart’s gate Just as we got up there saw some folks disapparate We ran up to the castle just as fast as we could fly Saw tangle robes upon the ground and knew it was goodbye

German Lyrics by Katy Dröge-Macdonald Du und ich im Zauberladen Schokofrösche wollen wir haben Lass sie frei, sie leben nicht lang Nur einen Hops, dann sind sie dran Ich krieg ein komisches Gefühl Etwas Finsteres ist im Spiel Unter dunklen Wolkendecken Sich 99 Todesser verstecken 99 Todesser, unter dunklen Wolkendecken Das Ministerium schlägt Alarm Hier ist was faul und zum Erschrecken Auroren werden alle wach Und Moody öffnet gar sein Auge Und blickt sehr angestrengt nach oben Denn 99 Todesser sind dort droben. In der Strasse der Entscheidung sich 99 Herren treffen In großer Sorge, großer Hast. Dementoren kommen angerast. Darauf haben wir gewartet Das ist es, Jungs, jetzt gibt es Krieg Cornelius Fudge am Telefon und 99 Todesser wollen den Sieg 99 Himmelsritter reiten ihre Feuerblitze Jeder ist ein Superheld Jeder ist ein Ludo Bagman Das Ziel ist: identifizieren abklären, klassifizieren Was für'n Gedränge und Gewimmel Mit 99 Todessern am Himmel 99 Todesser am Himmel 99 dunkle Träume Das Dunkle Mal schwebt in der Nacht Es ist vorbei, ich stehe aufrecht In den Ruinen dieser Stadt Ach, könnt ich nur beweisen dass hier Magie regiert hat lange Zeit Sieh her, hier ist ein Schokofrosch Ich denk an dich und lass' ihn frei. and Katy's translation of the German in to English: You and I in the magic shop Chocolate frogs is what we want Set them free, they don't live long Only one hop and then they're done I get a strange feeling Something dark and evil is involved And under dark cloudy skies 99 death eaters hide 99 death eaters under dark and cloudy skies The ministry calls red alert Something's fishy and scary The aurors have all awakened And even Moody opens his eye And looks intently to the above Because there are 99 death eaters up there. On decision street 99 men meet They're very worried and in a big hurry, Dementors are coming very fast This is what we've waited for This is it, boys, there will be war, Cornelius Fudge on the telephone and 99 death eaters want the victory 99 sky knights ride on their firebolts Everyone's a superhero Everyone's a Ludo Bagman The goal is to identify clarify and classify What a crowd and what a swarming With 99 death eaters in the sky 99 death eaters in the sky 99 dark dreams The Dark Mark floats in the nightsky It is over and I stand upright In the ruins of this city Oh, if I could only prove that magic reigned here for a long time Look, here is a chocolate frog. I think of you and set it free.
