The Lyrics

I'm at badave.com
Aaaah
Wand out
I am far beyond clever
Float strangely
Steve's head still talks though severed
I'm a war-lock most de-spise
Pranking at your house

Your sight
Confused by my endeavors
That's right
Can even change the weather
You had best get out my way
Turn you into a mouse!

I'll turn riches into rags
Make disasters when I'm bored
It Doesn't matter if it's fair
I laugh loud just like Jafar
Difference is I'm living large
No animation required

Best yet
I never need a scape-goat
Cops frown
Can't recall what my face looked like
My mind has no lim-its you'll see
Don't bother with doubts

Witchcraft movies put to shame
Hocus Pocus on the shelf
No frog tongues in my game
Voldemort-that silly jerk
I dream of Genie - just a flirt
Exists only in name

Levitate my couch!

My house
It is more like a mansion
That's right
Looks like the Adams family's
Charming I can have anyone I want for keeps
I could make a spouse

No need for spells to retort
I just think it-and then it's set
magical potions-never
I hope you don't get upset
Turned you into my new pet
Cause its what I desired

Puurrrrrrr!

Fun parody!

Pretty magical, a bit clunky here and there but still a spellbinder.

Good parody. A good tribute to all of the magical world including David Blaine, Harry Potter and Gandalf!

(Artistry) One of my favorite TH songs. I also used that song to write about magic as well called "Turning To A Mouse", which is from the movie "The Witches" from 1990. It's about 3 coven of witches who turn children into a mouse. Great work and casting 555 spells for this satire!

(Artistry) I get the feeling there's more references in this parody than I'm catching. Fun concept, this is probably the first time Voledmort's been called "silly".

(Artistry) A few extra syllables here and there ( particularly in the line "Charming I can have anyone I want for keeps", which is, like, three more than necessary), but otherwise this was pretty good. I agree with Rex in that there's probably some references I'm missing, but that's not out of the ordinary for me. 444

(Artistry) Some pacing stumbles, but still so funny!
