#FridayFilk : A Wizard’s Bread And Butter

What the hell, it’s cold outside, the days are dark here so I thought I’d bring back the old Friday Filk posts for a while – a series of silly songs perfect for getting you kicked out of your local pub, library, place of worship or geography lesson. Mostly old stuff, just for a laugh, but maybe some new things will raise their heads as well, let’s see.

Not sure what Filk is? Well, thanks to a typo in a magazine waaaaaayyyyyy back, ‘Filk Music’ is the folk music of the geek community. It started at a con with WGGL (We’re Going to Get Lynched for doing this!) and now has spread world wide. There are many respected Filk artists from Leslie Fish and Heather Alexander to Not Literally and Random Encounters.

October is the month for witch and wizardry for sure so here’s a Harry Potter song for you (you can sing it to the tune of ‘My Old Man’s A Dustman’ or you can make up your own tune UTY 😀 )

 

A WIZARD’S BREAD AND BUTTER:

 

Oh there’s nothing wrong with Lumos

If you need a bit of light

But Lumos just won’t cut it

If you’re looking for a fight

 

Oh there’s nothing wrong with Bat Bogies

If you’re squabbling at school

But you’ll look pretty infantile

If you try it in a duel

 

Oh there’s nothing wrong with a disarm spell

If it’s a duel you’ve found

But a disarm spell won’t serve you well

When there’s Death Eaters around

 

Oh there’s nothing wrong with Confringo

It will blow them all away

But Confringo will have to go

When the Dark lord comes to play

 

Oh there’s nothing wrong with all these spells

But when these spells won’t do…

Just try ‘AVADA KEDAVRA!’ 

It’s the spell to get you through!
