The Lyrics

This is the 11th and final Harry Potter parody of a song from "Ghost In The Machine." This is about when Harry takes the train back home.
Here I am on the train sittin' on my own seat
I do not miss the Dursleys' smelly muggle street
I wish I never left school this morning
Time with the Dursleys is so boring

The Dursleys laughed when I was chased in a park
By a dog who repeatedly barked
The Dursleys are horrible
I will miss
Hogwarts school
And all my friends

At home, I have to wear old Muggle clothes
Dudley always punches me in the nose
I wish I never left school this morning
Time with the Dursleys is so boring

I'd rather meet with my friends to get off my street
Than get kicked around by Dudley's big smelly feet
I wish I never left school this morning
Time with the Dursleys is so boring
This parody is similar to "Weird Al"'s "You Don't Love Me Anymore." For example, "The Dursleys laughed when I was chased in a park By a dog who repeatedly barked" is similar to "I remember the way that you laughed, when you pushed me off the elevator shaft." One day when I record "Goin' Back Home To The Dursleys," don't expect me to make a weird sound after the end of that song, similar to what "Weird Al" did like a few minutes after the end of "You Don't Love Me Anymore." Anyways, this Harry Potter album is completed. So it's three HP albums down and four more to go! The next HP album I will work on will be about "The Deathly Hallows," and that album will be a parody of Genesis' "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway." It is definitely longer than Green Day's "American Idiot." I will also work on a Freddy Krueger album, which is a parody of The Alan Parson's Project's "Eye In The Sky." It is kind of a follow-up to "Burn Of The Freddy Guy." I already wrote song parodies of "Eye In The Sky" and "Psychobabble." I have like 7 or 8 more parodies to complete the FK album. It will focus very much on the Dream Warriors. I did come up with this one other subject to parody the album "Eye In The Sky" and I told my friend about it. Right now, that is a rumor but I'm not gonna tell you people about that other subject. I figured that Freddy Krueger would be the best subject to fit because the mood of the "Eye In The Sky" would fit the parody album. Anyways, I will get those next parody albums done, maybe before I get my Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (which means that I'm gonna major as a teacher) sometime in 2010.

I had to look up Youtube because I didn't remember this song. Pacing was a bit off for me, but the subject matter matched well with this boring song. Once again, another book/album done! Good job, Raddog!!
I heard that the movie adaptation of HP&tDH will be a 2-part movie--the fact you will parody "Lamb", which was originally a 2-LP album, is rather fitting. Good luck!
