Lyrics: Rolling Home to Dear Old Hogwarts

September 18, 2014

ROLLING HOME TO DEAR OLD HOGWARTS

New words by WeenyOwl, to the tune of the traditional seafaring song ‘Rolling Home to Dear Old England/Caledonia/Old New England’ etc.

(You can listen to the song here.)

Lock up Hedwig’s cage securely
Load my trunk with magic gear
Bid good riddance to the Dursleys
No regrets, I’m out of here

Drop me off at Kings Cross Station
Let me board that scarlet train
For my summer’s no vacation
Life at Privet Drive’s a pain

Rolling home, rolling home,
Rolling home upon the track
Rolling home to dear old Hogwarts
Join the feast and welcome back!

No more sleeping in a cupboard
Underneath a flight of stairs
There’s no place to go but upward
Leave behind my Muggle cares

On the platform friends are greeting
Hear that engine whistle sound
Time for boarding, time for seating
Time to leave, we’re Hogwarts-bound

Rolling home, rolling home,
Rolling home upon the track
Rolling home to dear old Hogwarts
Join the feast and welcome back!

London town lies far behind us
Riding north through moor and glen
Mountains rising to remind us
Soon we’ll see her towers again

Ancient wisdom of our mentors
Lies in wait for our return
Classrooms beckon us to enter
So much magic left to learn

Rolling home, rolling home,
Rolling home upon the track
Rolling home to dear old Hogwarts
Join the feast and welcome back!
