The Lyrics

A parody of "The Elements" which was written by Tom Lehrer in 1959 to include spells from the Harry Potter Series. Here is a link to the original song if you haven't heard it before or want to hear it again: Tom Lehrer's "The Elements" Please comment with your thoughts and vote! ***CAUTION*** the original song is quite a tongue-twister and this version is probably even moreso
There's densaugeo, diffindo, incendio, silencio,
And hurling hex and obscuro and oppugno and reducio
And portus, expelliarmus, incarcerous, impervius
And avis, impedimenta, riddikulus, deletrius,
Engorgio, legilimens, deprimo, geminio
And confundo and confringo and morsmordre and glisseo
And nox, serpensortia and ferula and stupefy
And reparo and sonorus and protego and scourgify.

There's reducto, rictusempra, obliviate, imperio
And langlock, mobiliarbus, orchideous, anapneo
And quietus and rennervate and trip jinx and relashio,
And duro, lumos, episkey, evanesco and tergeo.

There's erecto and expulso and descendo and accio
And hover charm and killing curse and point me and crucio
And hair loss curse and hot-air charm, furnunculus, aguamenti,
Dissendium and freezing charm and flying charm and flagrate
And pack, cave inimicum, and gripping charm, levicorpus,
Jelly-legs jinx, sectumsempra, muffliato, colloportus,
And babbling curse, bat-bogey hex, bubble-head charm, banishing charm,
And placement charm and stinging hex and gouging spell and cheering charm.

There's homenum revelio, locomotor, homorphus charm
And also alohomora, body-bind curse and patronus charm
And peskipiksi pesternomi, finite incantatem
And piertotum locomotor, and protego totalum.

These are quite a lot of the spells that were in the series,
And I could have added others, but my brain got very weary.

I got all of the spells from this website: Wikipedia: Spells In Harry Potter

One of those "I wish I'd thought of it" ideas - one or two places that pacing was a bit strained, but I'll blame JK Rowling for not making her spells scan correctly :-) Final couplet could be improved, IMO, but as I can't think of a suitable corny rhyme for "Hogwarts" I'm not going to dock any marks for it :-)

I have zero interest in Harry Potter but enjoyed this nonetheless.
