clenched. Other prisoners lurk in the shadows, watching him. He lifts his head.
Sure, I was crazy when I came,
I was innocent, I’d been framed,
Yes, I was one of the Potters’ mourners!
And after all these years – the same old hell,
That dirty bed, that rancid smell,
Dementors lurking in the corners!!
Azkaban Prison, maze-like prison,
Secretive, so dark, and more than scary!
Azkaban Prison – nightmare prison,
Waiting here to swallow the unwary!
(Some prisoners step forward: the Lestranges are among
Dreams were not enough to win that war,
And we were always keeping score,
The Ministry had no idea!
SIRUS (glaring at them):
That, beneath the smiles, the cost was great,
A generation lost to hate, our whole world
Plunged in mindless fear!
Azkaban Prison – headline prison!
Getting here was only the beginning!
Azkaban Prison – lifetime prison!

They thought I’d sold out – Peter had sold out!
He’s still alive – and he’s enjoying

Now you’re in prison –
Clinging on grimly to my sanity!
(tossed over his shoulder to Bellatrix)
Well, I’m a Black!
(Bellatrix sneers and steps back into the shadows)
Our world’s hardly changed over the years
Since those great wizard pioneers
Founded their famous school of magic.
Seemed a great idea – but not for long,
Eventually it all went wrong,
No unity, it’s all so tragic!
Azkaban Prison, lifeless prison,
Devoid of any positive emotion
Azkaban Prison, brutal prison,
Hell on earth, surrounded by an ocean!
They placed my cousin next to me – what a joke!
It’s not like we have the slightest thing in common!
But now I can escape, cause they don’t know
That I’m a dog – he’s
I won’t let him hurt my godson…
Azkaban Prison, ruthless prison,
Destination for the stony-hearted;
Azkaban Prison, lethal prison!
I have not forgotten how this started!
Farewell to Azkaban!
