There's No Explaining Harry

 

Ron:
They ask me how he does it
And then they ask me why
That's like asking Hagrid
If a Skrewt would hurt a fly
You know he'll never say so
He doesn't think it's true
It's just the same with Harry
If he risks his life for you.

 

CHORUS:
Ron:            And if you say that you're not worth it
                    Or you tell him that he's cracked
                    Or that he'll get detention
                    Or that the deck is stacked
                    He'll avoid your eyes and shrug
                    With that funny look of his
                    There's no explaining Harry
                    It's just the way he is.

 

Hermione:
He started off by saving me
I couldn't have told you why
Ron said I was a nightmare
And I went off to cry
But Harry came to warn me
And protect me -- and defend
You can always count on Harry
He's the very best of friends.

 

CHORUS:
Ron:            And if you say that you're not worth it
                    Or you tell him that he's cracked
Hermione:   Or that he'll get detention
                    Or that the deck is stacked
Both:            He'll avoid your eyes and shrug
                    With that funny look of his
                    There's no explaining Harry
                    It's just the way he is.

 

Neville:
He won't try to make you worthless
He won't tell you that you're small
He'll stand up for a giant
Who's already eight feet tall
He'll stand up for centaur
For a Squib or ghost or elf
Harry will stand up for you
When you can't stand for yourself.

 

CHORUS:
Ron:            And if you say that you're not worth it
                    Or you tell him that he's cracked
Hermione:   Or that he'll get detention
Neville:        Or that the deck is stacked
All:               He'll avoid your eyes and shrug
                    With that funny look of his
                    There's no explaining Harry
                    It's just the way he is.

 

Ginny:
He'll follow you through fire
His face all pinched and grave
And if you tell him that he's noble
Or you tell him that he's brave
He'll shrug it off, embarrassed,
He doesn't think it's true
It's just this thing with Harry:
He'll risk his life for you.

 

CHORUS:
Ginny:         And if you say that you're not worth it
Ron:            Or you tell him that he's cracked
Hermione:   Or that he'll get detention
Neville:        Or that the deck is stacked
All:               He'll avoid your eyes and shrug
                    With that funny look of his
                    There's no explaining Harry
                    It's just the way he is.
