Here's a tale about a boy who lived.
Raised a Muggle, always struggling.
His parents died, he was left with a scar
By the the evil Lord Voldemort.

And all these years he's been wondering why
He's the one to make the sacrifice.
But when he sleeps at night he knows
That he can never go home.

He's the one they call Harry Potter.
Lightning scar and hair like his father's.
With a task that only he can do,
He'll keep fightin' till the fighting's through.

Years went by and he felt out of place,
Until the day he turned a certain age.
He was taken to a school where he
Would become a hero naturally.

And all these years he's been wondering why
He's the one to make the sacrifice.
But when he sleeps at night he knows
He can never go home.

He's the one they call Harry Potter.
Lightning scar and hair like his father's.
With a task that only he can do,
He'll keep fightin' till the fighting's through.

Aboard the train he met a boy named Ron.
He knew he'd met someone that he could count on.
There was Hermoine with all of her smarts.
They would discover mysteries of the Dark Arts.

And all these years he's been wondering why
He's the one to make the sacrifice.
But when he sleeps at night he knows
He can never go home.

He's the one they call Harry Potter.
Lightning scar and hair like his father's.
With a task that only he can do,
He'll keep fightin' till the fighting's through.
