The Lyrics

The climax of the book "Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix"sung to the tune of "Hotel California"(If anybody can hook me up with someone who will record this under a CC license, I'd be grateful!)
On the back of a thestral
Cool wind in my hair
Watching Ron and the others
Flail about in midair
Up ahead in the distance
I saw the lights of the town
My scar grew painful and my courage grew dim
I told my ride to touch down

There we stood in the foyer
A bunch of Hogwarts kids
And I was thinking to myself
Won't the Ministry just flip their lids
When they find that the secrets
That they kept locked away
Were so easy to retrieve at will
By the Teen D.A.!

Welcome to the Ministry of Magic
Such a lonely place
Such a spooky space
Hundreds of rooms at the Ministry of Magic
Under lock and key
Not a prob for me

Hermione said to be careful
I led them all through the dark
We marked an X on every, every door
Then we got a shock
The Death-Eaters were waiting
Sweet irony
I was there to save Sirius,
He was there to save me.

So I said to Bellatrix
You shouldn't be here at all.
She said, we do exactly what the Dark Lord says
Whenever we get the call.
And still those voices are moaning
They sound so sad
Lupin said what I didn't want to hear
I'd lost another dad!

Welcome to the Ministry of Magic
Such a lonely place
Such a spooky space
They're running around at the Ministry of Magic
Fresh from Azkaban
What the hell's their plan?

Malfoy with his wand out,
The prophecies on shelves
And he said, we need you to grab one of these
'Cause we can't trust house elves.
Then the Order broke in,
And brought him to defeat.
But not before ol' Ron got brained
And Neville's legs were beat!

Last thing I remember
I was lying on the floor
The Dark Lord tried to end my life
But I was saved by Dumbledore
Relax, said the Minister,
This is an easy thing to fix.
Harry Potter you are off the hook
Until we start BOOK SIX!

This is super - I thought the lines "The Death-Eaters were waiting/Sweet irony/I was there to save Sirius,/He was there to save me." were perfect. And a great ending, too.

Damn, this is good! I wrote a similar parody a while ago.. didn't post it on Amiright though... based around Harry's first visit to the Ministry. I really like what you've done here. Phil picked my favourite lines! Well done.
