The Lyrics

We all have our favourite characters. Sometimes, though, we confuse "liking" a character with "refusing to believe that they've done anything wrong"...a character. I didn't really arrange that sentence well.
Hmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm, yeah, yeah

Buddy, I know you're a fan, please
Of these Harry Potter tomes
Always love to natter
About your fav'rite character, he's a complex
Arsehole that you absolutely love, oh yeah-eah-eah

But look back on the things he's done
Mocking Weasley for being dumb
He shows no class in teaching Potions class
I need to show you that Snape was an arse

You claim he's dutiful, I'd say he's tyrannical
Shames Harry for not knowing lore, oh no
Inverse makes me madder
When he belittles Hermione for being
Eager to grasp all that he's taught

Just look back on the things he's done (review all the things he's done)
Still holds onto a childish grudge (a very childish grudge)
James did have smarm, punish his son? That's harsh (pretty harsh)
Still gotta show you that Snape was an arse

You border on obsession
He may be good at his core
Still got his bite and bark
Still must show you that Snape was an arse

Best to look back at what he's done
"Ends justify the means" won't stretch that far
Teaching skills under par (they're quite under par)
Dude, let me show you that Snape was an arse
Please look back at the things he's done
Called Lily, his crush, a mudblood (called his love a mudblood)
That's way too harsh, he crossed a line by far
I hate to show you that Snape was an arse (hurts me to show you the truth, Snape was an arse)
Looking back on the things he's done
There's a lot of good there, no bunk
But you still wash away all of his flaws
So let me show you that Snape was
Show you that Snape was an arse

Coulda been worse. Coulda been a Draco fanboy, the smug little ferret.
