Snape as Potions Master

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SEVERUS SNAPE, POTIONS MASTER

(words by Valeria-Johanna,
to the tune of ‘Sam Hall’, a traditional ballad )

(You can listen to the song here.)

Oh my name is Severus Snape,
Potions master, potions master,
Oh my name is Severus Snape,
Potions master.
My name is Severus Snape
And my fate I can’t escape,
For the Dark Lord I must face
Ere I die, ere I die,
The Dark Lord I must face
Ere I die.

Pride and folly brought my fall
(I was young, I was young),
Pride and folly brought my fall
(I was young);
Pride and folly brought my fall
Into the Dark Lord’s thrall—
But no doubt I’ll pay for all
Ere I’m done, ere I’m done,
But no doubt I’ll pay for all
Ere I’m done.

They all thought that he was gone,
But not I, but not I,
They all thought that he was gone,
But not I;
They all thought that he was gone,
But I knew he must return
And I’d feel the Dark Mark burn
Once again, once again,
And I’d feel the Dark Mark burn
Once again.

Now he’s killed the Diggory boy
Half in sport, half in sport,
Now he’s killed the Diggory boy
Half in sport.
He’s killed the Diggory boy
And young Potter would destroy—
What chance then for a spy
With Voldemort, Voldemort?
What chance then for a spy
With Voldemort?

For my task is to deceive
If I can, if I can,
For my task is to deceive
If I can;
My task is to deceive
With the lies that I must weave,
And make him still believe
I’m his man, I’m his man,
And make him still believe
I’m his man.

To the graveyard I must go,
In a mask, in a mask,
To the graveyard I must go,
In a mask:
To the graveyard I must go
To meet our deadliest foe;
But what I then must do
Pray don’t ask, pray don’t ask,
No, what I then must do
Pray don’t ask.

Oh my name is Severus Snape,
Order spy, Order spy,
Oh my name is Severus Snape,
Order spy.
My name is Severus Snape
And my fate I can’t escape,
For the Dark Lord I must face
Ere I die, ere I die,
For the Dark Lord I must face
Ere I die.
