Friday Filk: Harry Potter’s Alphabet Aerobics! (I found it at last!!!)

HAPPY FRIIIIIIIDAYYYYYY! I’m a bit excited (can you tell? XD ) I was thumbing through an old dropbox account I’d totally forgotten I had aaaaand – kapow! – I found the Harry Potter version of Blackalicious’ incredibly amazing Alphabet Aerobics! 😀 So although strictly speaking I was only doing the Friday Filk posts through December I couldn’t resist squeezing this one in 😀

If you don’t know the original (shame on you! XD 😉 xxx ) you can find it here:


But it was seeing Daniel Radcliffe do it in this next clip that made me think, tsk, he should have done a Harry Potter version… so I wrote one, just for larks XD


So with merry peels of wicked naughty laughter, here’s my HP version… XD

“Harry Potter’s Alphabet Aerobics”
(Alright then everybody, listen up! Welcome to the room of requirement, now it’s time for our warm up
Let’s give it everything we’ve got
Ready? Begin)

Azkaban escape artists, aren’t all animagi
Auras ought to Aquire an Axminster to fly by

Bertie Botts Beans behave bombastically believe
My bludger beaten butter beer bashed brain I don’t deceive
Chasing chambers chocolate frogs n cleansweeps cause calamities
Centaurs can’t cope with comets, causing catastrophies

Divination dunces done dealin with dementors
Deletritate the Dark Lord’s devious defenders

Ever ready with expelliarmus to evade
Any extra expiration eaters to erase

Frightful fire drakes within the forest forbidden
Feedin flubberworms, consider flirebolts ridden

Goblins guarding galleons in Gringots vaults are grim
Go Go Gryffindors and grab the golden snitch to win

Hangin with Hermione at honey dukes down in Hogsmead
With Hagrid and his Hippogriff at Hogwarts then its home for tea

I spell impervious, imperious, incendio,
Impedimenta, imperturbable, incantato

Jellylegs in jest can be a jolly good jape
But jumbling your jinxes is a big mistake

Keepin’ with my crew I am a Quidditch sensation
Or kickin’ back with Kingsley down at Kings Cross station

Leviosa, lumos, elementary I learned the lot
With professor lupin and his loopy lupine lycanthrope

Mudbluds live in mortal fear of Morsmordre the mark is dark
And murdered muggles will appear if the ministry can’t stop this lark

We never nag Nagini never let a gnargle niggle us
Like Nigelus or A nimbus, two thousand when it’s nicked from us

Owls dropping orders from the ministry
It’s plain to see, that Olivander’s out of it and only we can set him free

Padfoot please at platform nine and three quarters be there on time
I’ll pronounce in parcel tongue and postulate what’s to be done

Queerly catching quaffles in a quidditch match game
Quickly Quote the quibbler mutter ‘quietus’ when they claim that you’re insane

Spell reducio, Ridikuulus, relashio,
Rikktusempra, Renervate, Repello, Reducto

Severus and Scabbers have scars they’d rather hide
But Scrimgeour and the secret seven wear their scars with pride

Toyohashi Tengu, Thundelarra Thunderers,
Tarapoto Tree Skimmers, Tchamba Charmers

Can you unfogg the future make a vow that is unbreakable
Curse Umbridge unforgivably make Uric unmistakable

Veritaserum is verily reviled
By volunteers Lord Voldemort has beguiled

When you want to wreak havoc or skive off sick
Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes will do the trick

Xenophilius is exemplary at anti-xenophobia
except when executioners are threatening his daughter

Will you go with Yaxley to the Yule Ball?
You know who will be there and he’ll shock them all.

Zod off with a sack of Zonko’s tricks trailing a zombie
Or just relax and catch some zees with Zaire, Zeller, Zipes, Zamojski, Zograf and Zambini

Phew – I’m Zonked.

Ok everyone that wasn’t too bad, now let me hear you sing it when faced with a dementor…
