Lyrics

Part 1

Harry:
Underneath these stairs
I hear the sneers and feel glares of
my cousin, my uncle, and my aunt.

Can't believe how cruel they are
and it stings my lighting scar
to know that they'll never ever give me what I want.

I know I don't deserve these
stupid rules made by the Dursleys
here on Privet Drive.

Can't take all of these Muggles,
but despite all of my struggles,
I'm still alive.

I'm sick of summer and this waiting around.
Man, it's September, so I'm skipping this town.
Hey, it's no mystery,
there's nothing here for me now.

I gotta get back to Hogwarts,
I gotta get back to school.
Gotta get myself to Hogwarts,
where everybody knows I'm cool.

Back to witches and wizards and magical beasts,
to goblins and ghosts and to magical feasts.
It's all that I love, and it's all that I need,
At Hogwarts, Hogwarts, I think I'm going back!

I'll see my friends, gonna laugh 'til we cry.
Take my Firebolt, gonna take to the sky.
No way this year anyone's gonna die,
and it's gonna be totally awesome!

I'll cast some spells with a flick of my wand.
Defeat the dark arts, yeah, bring it on!
And do it all with my best friend Ron, 'cause together we're totally awesome.

Ron:
Yeah, and it's gonna be totally awesome!

[ dialogue ]

Ron:
It's been so long, but we're going back.
Don't go for work, don't go there for class.

Harry:
As long as were together—

Ron:
—gonna kick some ass!

Harry & Ron:
And it's gonna be totally awesome!

This year we'll take everybody by storm,
stay up all night, sneak out of our dorm.

Hermione:
But let's not forget that we need to perform well in class,
if we want to pass our O.W.L.s!

[ dialogue ]

Hermione:
I may be frumpy, but I'm super smart.
Check out my grades, they're A's for a start!
What I lack in looks, well, I make up in heart,
And well, guys, yeah, that's totally awesome!

This year, I plan to study a lot!

Ron:
That would be cool if you were actually hot.

Harry:
Hey Ron, come on, we're the only friends that she's got!

Ron:
And that's cool!

Hermione:
And that's totally awesome!

Harry, Ron, & Hermione:
Yeah, it's so cool, and it's totally awesome!

We're sick of summer and this waiting around.
It's like we're sitting in the lost and found.
Don't take no sorcery,
for anyone to see how.

We gotta get back to Hogwarts,
we gotta get back to school.
We gotta get back to Hogwarts,
where everything is magic-cool!

Everyone:
Back to witches and wizards and magical beasts,
to goblins and ghosts and to magical feasts.
It's all that I love, and it's all that I need at
Hogwarts, Hogwarts!

Harry, Ron, & Hermione:
I think we're going back!

Part 2

[ dialogue ]

Cho's Posse:
Cho Chang!
Domo arigato, Cho Chang!
Gung Hey Fat Choy, Chang!
Happy, happy New Year, Cho Chang!

[ dialogue ]

Cedric:
Oh, Cho Chang!
I am so in love with Cho Chang,
from Bangkok to Ding Dang!
I sing my love aloud for Cho Chang!

[ dialogue ]

Malfoy:
This year you bet I'm gonna get outta here
The reign of Malfoy is drawing near,
I'll have the greatest wizard career,
and it's gonna be totally awesome!

Look out world, for the dawn of the day
When everyone will do whatever I say!
And that Potter won't be in my way, and then
I'll be the one who is totally awesome!

Goyle:
Yeah, you'll be the one who is totally awesome.

Hermione:
Come on guys! We're gonna miss the train!

Ensemble:
Who knows how fast this year's gonna go?
Hand me a glass, let the butterbeer flow.

HARRY:
Maybe at last, I'll talk to Cho!

Ron:
Oh no, that'd be way too awesome!

Ensemble:
We're back to learn everything that we can
It's great to come back to where we began
And here we are, and alakazam!
Here we go, this is totally awesome!

Come on and teach us everything you know
The summer's over and we're itchin' to go
I think were ready for—

Neville:
Albus Dumbledore!

Dumbledore:
Welcome—!
all of you to Hogwarts
I welcome back all of you to school.
Did you know that here at Hogwarts,
we've got a hidden swimming pool?

Welcome, welcome, welcome, Hogwarts,
welcome, all you hotties, nerds, and tools.
Now that I've got you here at Hogwarts,
I'd like to go over just a couple of rules.

[ dialogue ]

Ensemble:
Back to witches and wizards and magical beasts,
to goblins and ghosts and to magical feasts.
It's all that I love, and all that I need
At Hogwarts, Hogwarts!

Back to spells and enchantments, potions and friends.
To Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slytherin!
Back to the place where our story begins
At Hogwarts, Hogwarts!

Dumbledore:
I'm sorry, what's its name?

Ensemble:
Hogwarts, Hogwarts!

Dumbledore:
I didn't hear you kids!

Ensemble:
Hogwarts, Hogwarts!

Harry:
Man, I'm glad I'm back!
