The Lyrics

Harry
You’ve gone and run away.
You’re sitting on the curb
Just like a homeless stray.

Harry
Your folks, they treat you bad.
You’re just their problem child,
And you miss your Mom and Dad.

Ah, talk to me
‘Cause I can see
What’s going on.
You-Know-Who’s
After you,
But he ain’t here, not tonight.

Gonna be a sweet ride.
Step inside
Of the Knight Bus.
We’ll fly just like a cloud
Right through the Muggle crowd.
Gonna be a weird night,
Gonna see strange sights
On the Knight Bus.
We’ll take you far from home.
My boy, you’re not alone
On the Knight Bus.
We’ll take you far from home.
My boy, you’re not alone
On the Knight Bus.

Madgie
Why did you float away?
Hey, did that wizard boy
Object to what you say?

Madgie
Your tongue is acid fire.
You blew up like a tire.
The spell is lifting you
Higher and higher.

Float away
Till Harry’s safe
From your side.
You-Know-Who’s
Breaking through,
But he ain’t here, not tonight.

Gonna be a sweet ride,
Sudden glides
On the Knight Bus.
We’re flying like a cloud
Right through the Muggle crowd.
Gonna be a weird night,
Gonna see strange sights
On the Knight Bus.
We’ll take him far from home.
Our boy is not alone
On the Knight Bus.

Gonna hear some weird sounds.
Slide around
On the Knight Bus.
We’re flying like a cloud
Right through the Muggle crowd.
Gonna be a weird night,
Gonna see strange sights
On the Knight Bus.
We’ll take you far from home.
No one is all alone
On the Knight Bus.

Sir, take me on the ~Knight Bus~ to Havana, Quba. . . Viva la Cohiba !

Not a fan of the Harry Potter series, but I thought this was a good parody. DKTOS, but you deserve 5 wands, 5 owls, and 5 more HP series scandals. [Dumbledore is gay? WTF?]

(ABC) Clever use of OS...

HP is not my cup of tea either but the parody is written exceptionally well to a classic Commodores' OS. I like what you did with it so I won't judge it on HP having a lack of appeal to me. The parody DOES appeal to me. Nice write, Melanie.

(ABC) This parody cries out for a followup...who woulda thunk the Commodores' could be morphed onto a HP theme? Not bad.

(ABC5) I know next to nothing about the HP series, and I've never heard of the OS or the band that sings it. So, um...yeah, can't say much else.

Really? You've never heard of the Commodores?? Oh my, I'm starting to feel old, I may have only been in my single digits in age, but wow. . .you are in Australia though--maybe they weren't as big outside America. .

As an Australian, I can certainly vouch for the fact that The Commodores had a few hits here in the 70s and 80s - this being one of them.

ABC5(J/K) Flowed very well with the OS!!!...555!!!...Unfortunately, I'm not familiar enough with the Harry Potter stories to understand some of the references here.

Love Harry Potter! I can't wait to go and see the midnight showing of "Half Blood Prince" hopefully I can still get tickets!

I hate to say this Melanie. . .I enjoyed your piece as I usually do, but because I know you aren't going to be voting--it's hard to give it points because I know they will not count. . .it makes it hard to rate it fairly. . .I really wish you could find time to spread out your voting perhaps or some other way to ensure you don't keep getting disqualified because your work is unique and different, and while sometimes I love it, sometimes I'm neutral on it, it's always different. . .hope things work out. . .5s on this piece.

Not sure what this one was about.... I think HP, but I haven't seen them all.

Thanks for all the comments! Correction: I'd thought the character was Aunt Madge, but she is Aunt Marge, so I should've said "Margie". :)
