The Lyrics

This is about J.K Rowling's constant changing of the Harry Potter franchise and her recent transphobic controversy. Inspired by Teddie Films "The Star Wars That I Used to Know".
[Verse 1: HP fans]
Now and then we think of when Harry Potter was loved
Like when he defeated Voldemort with just love
We said: “Potter is a gift to us”
But you messed up the continuity
And made up details like “Dumbledore is gay”

[Verse 2: HP fans]
You have disappointed us time and time again
Like when you expressed transphobic views
So when you tried to make your views make sense
Well, you told us your sufferings
But that doesn’t justify your behavior

[Chorus: HP fans]
But you didn't have to change it all
Make out like it was all a lie and the fans are nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you’re acting like Umbridge and that feels so rough
No, you didn't have to stoop so low
Confuse all of us and hope that it’ll turn out good
You think that you don’t need us though
What happened to the Potter that we used to know
What happened to the Potter that we used to know
What happened to the Potter that we used to know

[Verse 3: J.K. Rowling]
Now and then I think of all the times I screwed fans over
I thought they’d believe all the stuff I said about the characters
But Harry Potter belongs to me
I don’t care what they say about me
I think they should just let it go
‘Cause they won’t enjoy the Potter that they used to know

[Chorus: HP fans]
But you didn't have to change it all
To the point where we just can’t enjoy it for what it is (Ahhh)
And I don't even need your love (Oooh)
But you treating us like ghosts and that feels so rough (Ahhh)
No, you didn't have to be this way (Oooh)
Go against accepting others by being transphobic (Ahhh)
I guess that you won’t hear us though (Oooh)
What happened to the Potter that we used to know

[Outro: HP fans]
The movies (We used to know)
The books (What happened to the Potter that we used to know)
The movies (We used to know)
The books (What happened to the Potter that we used to know)
(We used to know)
(That we used to know)
(We used to know)
The books

As a long time HP fan (Hermione Granger is my alter ego), I absolutely loved this. Fives!
