This is just a bit of (very) silliness that I wrote ages ago (and just now decided to polish up), inspired by morcherry’s Labour 5 over at the Anthology. I’d advise you all to go and read that before continuing this, because it’s an extremely funny piece of writing and also because otherwise my little song won’t make much sense to you. The song that I “used”, by the way, is ‘The Farmer in the Dell’ which I (like many other people!) used to sing when I was little…I use the “heigh-ho” spelling, but it can also be found as “hi-ho”.

Dedicated to Morcherry (hope you like it!) and the rest of the Anthology gang, especially Darwin’s Apprentice (who has done something like this himself) and St. Margarets.

Many thanks, as always, go to the wonderful Zsenya; I don’t know where I’d be without her!

 

All characters belong to JKR, not to me. I’m just playing around with them…
