The Lyrics

This is my 3rd Harry Potter parody of a combination of two songs from Genesis' '83 album. Most of "Second Home by the Sea" is instrumental, but the last part of it has Phil Collins singing. In the future, i would tweak the combination of the instrumental versions of the two songs into one instrumental version. That is so I would sing my written lyrics to the combined instrumental version. Anyways, this parody is about when McGonagall puts Harry and Ron in detention for flying a car and crashing it into the Whipping Willow Tree. The parody is a view from Harry.
***Parody of "Home By The Sea"***:

Crashed on the tree
Crashed on the tree
Crashed on the tree
Crashed on the tree

We just made to school, with the flying car
And crashed on that tree this night
Snape got pissed at us, then McGonagall came
And gave us detention tonight
Cause we scared some people, with the flying car
When we do not have a right

In two hours, we'll be leavin' here
Out of this office so we can rest
Though we crashed the car on the tree

What will the Weasleys say when they have to send
Some complaint letters tomorrow?
They'll get so mad like it's the end of the world
Our dumb fears are startin' to grow
We know we got detention, but it would unfair
If we got kicked out tomorrow

In two hours, we'll be leavin' here
Out of detention so we'd have time
To think out how we'll be free
From this worse trouble
For decidin' to fly a car
And then crash it right on the tree

We're screwed, we're screwed
we're screwed, we're screwed, we're screwed
But we'll soon have revenge on Lord You-Know-Who

We hope that tomorrow, won't be like tonight
But we will go on with our lives
My mother and father, died of such a doom
You-Know-Who ended their lives
My uncle, aunt and cousin, put me in shame
Because Dobby ruined my life

In two hours, we'll be leavin' here
Out of detention so we'd have time
To think out how we'll be free
From this worse trouble
For decidin' to fly a car
And then crash it right on the tree

We're screwed, we're screwed
We're screwed, we're screwed, we're screwed, we're screwed
But we'll soon have revenge on Lord You-Know-Who
Yes, we'll soon have revenge on Lord You-Know-Who

We're screwed, we're screwed, we're screwed
Dobby's been in my way
The wall's ruined our day
We flew the car all day, we're screwed
But we'll soon have revenge on Lord You-Know-Who
Yes, we'll soon have revenge on Lord You-Know-Who, f**k yeah

(Then, somehow. it would get tweaked to the last part, which would be a parody of the last part of "Second Home by the Sea," where Phil Collins sings.)

***Parody of the last part of "Second Home by the Sea"***:

We hope that tomorrow
All things will turn out right
So we'd live some magical lives

Every single summer
Turns out really bad
Those Dursleys always trouble my life

And that stupid Dobby
Keeps puttin' me in shame
But I must go on with my life

We will soon have revenge
On Lord You-Know-Who

This is kinda like one that I wrote way back when (but it wasn't about Harry Potter). Good stuff! 5's

I definitely saw that parody you wrote, but honestly, I'd never plagerize you or anyone else. Anyways, thank you for the comment!

Yeah, I heart Harry Potter, especially Chamber of Secrets, which I'm guessing this satire of yours is based upon! The crashing car is the most unforgettable scene! As sung by Harry Potter himself! Great job raddog and 5's. More Harry satires of you to read and respond soon!
