House Songs
« on: August 16, 2003, 11:40:39 PM »

Well, there used to be something like this, way back in the day, I think. It was in Flourish and Blotts. Pretty much, you can just create a song about your house, and post it up! HOUSE PRIDE everyone!!!!! Well, go ahead, create and enjoy!! Something Panthre said reminded me of this...

Aarg *racks brains out*

Well, this is all I came up with. Hopefully I'll find better:

Ahem.

(It goes to Jingle Bells)

Hufflepuffs, Hufflepuffs, we're the greatest!
Us patient Hufflepuffs are true, and unafraid of toil, hey!

Hufflepuffs, Hufflepuffs, we're the greatest!
Us patient Hufflepuffs are true, and unafraid of toil...

Walking through Hogsmeade, with a smile upon our face,
Chewing Bertie Bott's Every - Flavour Beans, helping all the way! HELP! HELP! HELP! ;)

Dodging Slytherins, reading good books,
Talking to our loyal friends and having great fun...

Oh! Hufflepuffs, Hufflepuffs, we're the greatest!
Us patient Hufflepuffs are true, and unafraid of toil... HEY!


Hmm.. well, what do you guys think?  ;D

*solemnly places a hand over her heart*

(to the tune of Amazing Grace - no disrespect intended)

Oh, Gryffindor!  The noble house
Where live the true and brave!
Our common room would heaven be
If Shelly would behave.

Our parties last from dusk to dawn
With butter beer and treats,
And Sirius turns into things
With every one he eats.

AZ and he invent the stuff
That daunts our wish to chew,
But if their treats disturb your peace,
They'll give you one that's blue.

Our band, it has a funky sound.
Rehearsals are a kick,
And you will feel the groove within
When Cho rips out rock licks.

Our Lauren, she's our artist, too,
Her buttons win us points.
And Cho will tell you how to spell
Passé words like "Aroit."

Oh Gryffindor, the noble house
Where live the brave and true!
High fly our flag of red and gold!
Long roar our lion, too!

*Blink*  *Blink blink blink* *Cough*

Wow.

My only problem with it is that I wasn't the one noted to not behave... Looks like I'm slipping.  :(

No, no really Mad, that was awesome. Thanks for the bit about the treats, you know I'm about ready to go into selling of them again, my stocks are almost back up again. I've never been able to write stuff to a tune, because I always get a new tune in my head. Amazing. Really. And everything you said was personalized, just superb. IF I was a prefect you'd be getting some points for that one!!  ;D

*Runs off to the Common Room to create some disturbances, and perhaps challenge Shelly*

*blushing Gryffindor red*  Erm, thank you.

Cerebus, your's was good, too.  In fact, I think it deserves points.  How about five?  (I especially liked the "Help" part.  ;) )

Alright, here's one I've written about Ravenclaw ;D. It's to the tune of "Rocking around the Christmas tree".

*steps forward*

Studying with the Ravenclaws
Is more fun than it may seem
Homework gets done and it's time for fun
And the party's are supreme

Studying with the Ravenclaws
They're a charismatic team
Later they'll have some cauldron cakes
And they'll hatch a Quidditch scheme

They're house pride is really such a feeling
And you'll hear, voices singing "We're fantastic"
Plus, we're so enthusiastic...

Studying with the Ravenclaws
Is a time you shouldn't miss
Like eagles they fly, and you can't deny
They're the greatest house at this

*saxaphone solo*

They're house pride is really such a feeling
And you'll hear, voices singing "we're fantastic"
Plus, we're so enthusiatic...

Studying with the Ravenclaws
Is the way to get work done
Bronze and Blue pens, and some witty friends
It's all. about. the. FUUUUUUUNNNNNN!!!!!!!!

Superb, PG!! It rivals with Mad's... however you seem to have written one about the wrong house or something... you see the best songs are BOUND to be those for Gryffindor!! ;)

No really though it was really great. I still can't write to someone else's tune :(

*blushes* gosh, thanks everyone.
Cerberus, feel free to call me PG. Everyone else does!

I still have "Rocking around the Christmas tree" stuck in my head because I kept listening to it while I was writing my song. I hate having Christmas songs in my head when it's so far from Christmas. It's kind of depressing  :P

*carefully puts her eyes back in, rolling them to make sure they still work properly*  ;)  (Oh, by the way, Cerebus, I charmed you for actually spelling my name correctly.  *grins*  Thank you!)

I know what you mean, PG, but for some reason Christmas cheer is starting absurdly early with me this year.  I'm already thinking about what presents I'm going to get my family.  I intend to knit a few things, so I probably better start soon anyway.  *hands PG a sprig of mistletoe and five points*

....  Don't eat the mistletoe.  (And your song was great!)

I'm really bad at writing songs. If I did it would probably be along the lines of : LaLaLa Hufflepuff, LaLaLa Hufflepuff ...etc.. So I'm not even gonna try. My voice is horrible too so I'd get it all wrong. :-[

*Screams*

Ahh! Mad, that is so freaking good! *wipes tears from eyes*

Sorry, Sirius. I guess you'll just never be as good... err... bad as me.  ;D

OK, I'll give it a shot. (songwriting, that is)
Prepare your rotten tomatoes!

To the tune of the Oscar Mayer Bologna song:

Oh, my house it has a first name:
It's G-R-Y-F-F

Oh, my house it has a second name
It's I-N-D-O-R

Oh I love to go there every day and if you ask me why I'll saaaaayyyyY...

Cause Gryffindors, we have to be
Causing T-R-O-U-B-L-E





And also:

To the tune of Hilary Duff's "So Yesterday"

You can shout real loud
If you wanna
You can throw parties
If you wanna
If you lose some points
Well, thats the way it goes
But I'm gonna keep playing
Cause I wanna
And have lots of fun
Cause its one for all
And all for one!

And that's every day
Every day
Every day, Cause

Red and Gold, we're the best,
Though we don't do well on tests
We're Gryffindor, We're Gryffindor
Haven’t you heard that we're brave to the core?
Madeleine, our brand new mum and
Sirius, the resident bum
We're Gryffindor, We're Gryffindor
Saving the day is what we're here for.

You can earn some points
If you wanna
You can sell some treats
If you wanna
If you mess with Snape
Just admit defeat
I'll bet Cho will help
you to find a spell
When it comes to that
She is really swell

And that's every day
Every day
Every day

Red and Gold, we're the best,
Though we don't do well on tests
We're Gryffindor, We're Gryffindor
Haven’t you heard that we're brave to the core?
Madeleine, our brand new mum and
Sirius, the resident bum
We're Gryffindor, We're Gryffindor
Saving the day is what we're here for.

If you want some help you shouldn't look to us
Unless it's for cursing some Slytherin butts [OOC: J/K…sorta ;)]
But we’re always there if you need a friend
Though afterwards you may need some time to mend
Don’t mess with us, unless you want to lose
Cause the house cup we always choose

And that’s every day
Every day
Every day

Red and Gold, we're the best,
Though we don't do well on tests
We're Gryffindor, We're Gryffindor
Havent you heard that we're brave to the core?
Madeleine, our brand new mum and
Sirius, the resident bum
We're Gryffindor, We're Gryffindor
Saving the day is what we're here for.


Red and Gold, we're the best,

*Puffs out chest proudly*

Well, I'd have to say that is my second mentioning, in another GREAT song! I don't even know that tune, and I still enjoyed it.

Also, you know everyone, treats may be a little limited this time around, but still, I'll be letting you know when they're ready...

And it looks like 5 should go to Mad!  Great song, even though it's the wrong house.


Oh no Mad.

 I didn't mean it.

Please don't cry.

//grabs hanky

Here honey!

//looks frantically for a Gryffindor

Oh... It was a great song!  And yes, Mad, Gryffindor is a *wonderful* house!

Well, since we're all in the Christmas spirit around here, here's one to the tune of O Tannenbaum:

O Gryffindor!  O Gryffindor!
The noble house of honor.
O Gryffindor!  O Gryffindor!
My glorious alma mater.

All houses, heed
the lion’s roar,
for lions are
the king of all.

O Gryffindor!  O Gryffindor!
The noble house of honor.


[Okay, I know it's a bit weak, but it was all I could think of on the spur of the moment.  I used to have a long ballad on the old site, but it might be long gone by now.  I'll have to see if I can find it....]
