Think, Harry!
A Song of Exasperation
from Hogwarts, A Musical

Hermione:
Think, Harry!
Think, Harry!
          Why don't you stop and think?
Think, Harry!
Think, Harry!
          When the world's on the brink
You find a cause you want to tout
And charge ahead without a doubt
But would you once just... wait it out --
          Think, Harry!
          Think, Harry!
          Think!

Ron:
Think, Harry!
Think, Harry!
          Have you gone 'round the bend?
Think, Harry!
Think, Harry!
          You're yelling at your friends
We listen to what you confide
We know the truth that they denied
You ought to know... we're on your side
          Think, Harry!
          Think, Harry!
          Think!

McGonagall:
Think, Harry!
Think, Harry!
          Why can't you keep it down?
Think, Harry!
Think, Harry!
          Don't look at me and frown
I'm quite aware that you are young
You know the people you're among
Why can't you just... bite your tongue?
          Think, Harry!
          Think, Harry!
          Think!

Snape:
Think, Harry!
Think, Harry!
          Is thinking such a strain?
Think, Harry!
Think, Harry!
          Does it cause you pain?
Something that you never tried?
Your father didn't, before he died
It works wonders ... when applied.
          Think, Harry!
          Think, Harry!
          Think!

Ginny:
Think, Harry!
Think, Harry!
          Why don't you stop and ask?
Think, Harry!
Think, Harry!
          You're too focused on the task
You wandered 'round without a clue
I spent a year with You-Know-Who
And you forgot... Well, lucky you!
          Think, Harry!
          Think, Harry!
          Think!

All:
Think, Harry!
Think, Harry!
          Why don't you think it through?
Think, Harry!
Think, Harry!
          Do you know what to do?
Your habits now are well-renowned
And you've got enemies around
But we all want you... safe and sound
Hermione:             Think, Harry!
Ron:                       Think, Harry!
McGonagall:         Think, Harry!
Snape:                    Think, Harry!
All:                         Think, Harry!
                                Think, Harry!
Ginny:                    Think!

NOTES: 
This is an excerpt from "Hogwarts, A Musical" -- a work in progress. (You poor, unfortunate people.) I did want to clear up a definition:: "Hogwarts, A Musical" is not a parody -- a parody is original lyrics written to fit pre-existing music. "Afterwards," "There's No Explaining Harry," "And They Claim You Learn Nothing at School," "I Just Can't Understand" and "Think, Harry" are original lyrics with original melodies. They are no more parody than "Piano Man" by Billy Joel is a parody.

Alas, I know nothing about music. Other than singing it.

Badly.

I am attempting to make a recording of me -- badly -- singing the verse-and-chorus of each song so someone, somewhere, can transcribe these songs into something recognizably music-like... we live in hope.
