The Lyrics

I think this was originally a John Lennon song, but I'm generationally challenged and don't know if it's sung exactly the same this time around. Submitted at mugglenet.com for their Xmas Song Parody competition.
Oh, splintered Nimbus.
Rotten luck comes.
A horrible murder.
His broom was really Whomped.

You know, splintered Nimbus,
He rode you, old chum.
His rear end since Year One,
Was swollen and numb!

It's buried, Harry's Nimbus.
Now rides crappy school gear.
It's hopeless and shoddy.
Those Shooting Stars veer.

(Twooo thooousand and ooone.)

Oh, twisted Nimbus.
You streaked right along.
The Snitch couldn't dodge past.
The girls watched in throngs.

And so, tattered Nimbus.
You're cracked from your blight.
That Willow was callous,
And struck down your flight.

I'm bleary, Harry's Nimbus.
We all shed a few tears.
We'll roast you as kindling.
And toast you, my dear.

Oh, splintered Nimbus.
You got really dumped.
A terrible murder.
His broom was really Whomped.

Old battered Nimbus,
He rode you, old chum.
His rear end since Year One,
Was swollen and numb!

I'm sorry, Harry's Nimbus.
We all shed a few tears.
Emotions are solemn.
Devoutly stand near.

Get the pall to cover,
Get the pall to cover,
Harry's Nimbus.

I didn't even know Delta did this, maybe because this Aussie doesn't know ANY of her songs, but I could hear Lennon singing it - know nothing about HP (or is this LOTR) but 555 - (oh and dry as all hell)
