Lyrics: The Wand That’s Made of Holly

December 24, 2011

THE WAND THAT’S MADE OF HOLLY

Words by WeenyOwl, to the tune of ‘The Holly Bears a Berry’, also known as ‘The Sans Day Carol’ (trad.)
(You can listen to the song here.)

 

 

Oh the leaves of the holly, their praises we sing
For they’re green in the winter as they are in the spring
So green in the winter, they bring us jollity
And the wand that chose Harry it was the holly
Holly, holly
And the wand that chose Harry it was the holly

Oh the holly bears a berry as red as the blood
And to cast spells to defend you there’s no finer wood
To cast spells to defend you, your friends and family
And the wand that chose Harry it was the holly
Holly, holly
And the wand that chose Harry it was the holly

Oh the holly bears a prickle as sharp as the thorn
And it stings like the wind on a midwinter’s morn
Like the keen Sword of Gryffindor that slew Nagini
And the wand that chose Harry it was the holly
Holly, holly
And the wand that chose Harry it was the holly

Oh the wand that’s made of holly, renownèd in lore
For the fateful connection of its Phoenix-tail core
That fateful connection cost the Dark Lord victory
And the wand that chose Harry it was the holly
Holly, holly
And the wand that chose Harry it was the holly
