The Lyrics

This one is my 8th and final HP parody of a song from "Invisible Touch." It took me a long time to come up with the entire parody of the instrumental song. "/" means a synth, "-" means no hesitation between the synths, and no "-" means a hesitation. The synths on top of the words would help anyone sing out the instrumental.
/ /----/ /-------/ /
Last fall at Hogwarts school,
/ /------/ /---/ /
I flew right to the sky
/ /----/ /----/ /
Then I was falling down
/ /---/ /----/ /
I thought I was gonna die

/------------/-----/---/-------/-------/ /----/
Cause the lightning struck my Nimbus
/---/----/-----/--/------/ /----/
It suddenly blasted to bits
/----/---/----/-------/----------/ /------/
It was a broom I thought was worth it
/------/---/----/------/----/ /------------/
Now I think it's just a piece of shit

/---------/---/--/ /--/-----/--------/
Well, now I got a new broomstick
/------/---/---/ /--------/--/----/
It's really the most expensive
/---/---/---/ /---/----/-----/
I got it from my godfather
/------/-------/---/ /-----/-------/----/
He knew it was just worth to give
/-----/-----/----/ /----/------/---/
To me because it goes so fast
/--------/---------/--------/ /------/-/---/
This broomstick's called the Firebolt

/---/---/
Firebolt
/---/---/
Firebolt
/---/---/
Firebolt
/---/---/
Firebolt
/---/---/
Firebolt

/--------/--------/ /------/-------/
Next school year, this broomstick
/----------/-------/-----/----/--------/-------/
Might make me Hogwarts champion
/-----/-----/ /---/---/
Of next year's tournament
/-----/------/---------/--------/-----/--------/
Against Durmstrang and Beaubatons
/----------/---/------/-----/---/----/--------/---/-----/----/---/-----/
Though I know that I am under the age of seventeen

//----/-----/ //------/------/
If I ever win this tournament
/---/-----/---/---/---------/
I will win a grand prize
/---------/---/ /--------/-----/---/ /-----/
Which is one thousand Galleon coins

(Instrumental music)

/---/-------/ /--/--/
I hope the Firebolt
/----------/--------/-----/-------/--------/----/
Would make me Hogwarts champion
/-----/-----/ /---/---/
Of next year's tournament
/-----/------/-------/----------/-----/------/
Against Durmstrang and Beaubatons
/----------/---/------/-----/---/----/---/---/----/------/---/-------/
Though I know that I am under the age of seventeen

(More instrumental music)

/---/-------/ /--/--/
I hope the Firebolt
/----------/--------/-----/-------/--------/----/
Would make me Hogwarts champion
/-----/-----/ /---/---/
Of next year's tournament
/-----/------/-------/----------/-----/------/
Against Durmstrang and Beaubatons
/----------/---/------/-----/---/----/---/---/----/------/---/-------/
Though I know that I am under the age of seventeen

/---/------/ /--/--/
I hope the Firebolt
/----------/-----/-----/----/--------/----/
Would make me Hogwarts champion
/-----/-----/ /---/---/
Of next year's tournament
/-----/------/-------/------/-----/------/
Against Durmstrang and Beaubatons
/----------/---/-------/----/--/-/ /----/----/----/-----/---/-------/
Though I know that I am under the age of seventeen
/----------/---/-------/----/--/-/ /----/----/----/-----/---/-------/
Though I know that I am under the age of seventeen

/---/-----/ /--/--/
I hope the Firebolt
/----------/-----/-----/----/--------/----/
Would make me Hogwarts champion
/-----/-----/ /---/---/
Of next year's tournament
/-----/------/-------/------/-----/------/
Against Durmstrang and Beaubatons

(Then the music fades away)
Finally, I got my second HP parody album done! Though the synths might be a bit messed up.

Congratulations on getting it done. I usually have frowned on the practice of adding lyrics to an instrumental and calling it a "parody" per se, but hey...you put a lot of work into it. Maybe we can get Phil Collins to sing it, eh?
Now, are you going to work on rewriting Lamb Lies Down On Broadway after HP & The Deathly Hallows is released? :)

Thank you, Agrimorfee, for your regards to this parody! It would be cool if Phil Collins sang it at his Genesis Reunion concert. And yes, I will come up with "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" about HP & tDH. I have not yet listened to the entire album. However, as soon as I have listen to the entire album so many times and read the seventh and final HP book this year, I will come up with the HP parody album between Fall 2007 and next year.

Good luck on that! I have not heard the album, but it's my understanding that it's denser than a James Joyce novel...
