Parody Song Title:

"Professor Lupin"

Parody Written by:

Phil Alexander

The Lyrics

"Loup-garou" (pronounced "loo garoo") is the French for "werewolf" - I use it, not because I'm feeling pretentions (pretentious, moi?), but because it's easier to rhyme than "werewolf"... and it fits the original damn near perfectly.
I know that on the train
That he saved Harry (once again)
From a dementor or three
And if we see a big black hound
I know he'll be around
Greeting it, friendlily

Then afterwards we drop into a little screaming shack
Under the the Whomping Willoo
And then you go and spoil it all
By saying that Prof Lupin
Is a loup-garou

[I know] in your heart of hearts
That your Defense 'gainst the Dark Arts
Professor's kinda scary
And though you think I'm talking bull
The moon is full
And Lupin's getting rather hairy

And just the other day
Snape said we must write an essay
On this peculiar topic
It took me, well, ages
To tell an animagus
From the lycanthropic

The moon is high, his howling fills my head
His eyes are red
As he turns.. right on cue
And then you go and spoil it all
By pointing out Prof Lupin
Is a loup-garou
A loup-garou

I only know the chorus, so extemporised the rest hummingly. I hear those pretentious Beauxbatons have Fruit Loup-Garous every morning. Nice parody.

If you're looking for the original, it was recently covered by Nicole Kidman and Robbie Williams, which might be an easier one to find. My children have recently got the HPPoA video, so I've had a bit of a Lupin overdose recently - I'd guess the name Lupin/Loup-garou ("loup" being the French for "wolf") isn't a coincidence... thinking a bit more about it, "lupine" means wolf-like... so maybe when Hermione was asked how she knew he's a werewolf, she should have said "'cause that's your name, dummy"

I'm sure there was a band called Loop Guru in the 90's too. Good parody!
