Hank performs Esther's favorite song, "Accio Deathly Hallows," at the Project for Awesome 2010 Live Show.
Shay: Alright. Up next, my favorite Vlogbrother, can you have a favorite? I hope I’m not gonna get… Hank Green on the guitar everybody. Let’s hear it for DTFBA and the Project for Awesome. Hank Green everybody.

Hank: Hello and thank you. Thank you to Make a Wish, um, and thank you to Shay and, uh. As John was telling you, John and I had a pretty unique experience in that we, uh, we became good friends with, uh, a young lady named Esther Earl and, uh, through the Harry Potter fan community and the whole reason why, uh, Esther came into my life is because I write, I wrote this stupid song about, um, the last Harry Potter book the week before the last Harry Potter book came out. And for those of you who are giant nerds you, you must remember the pain and anguish that those, uh, that those, uh, final days really were after having heard so many, so much, so much media, so much hype and you didn’t have your Harry Potter book yet. And so I wrote this song and it’s the reason why, um, Esther became a part of my life and so I’m very thankful to this song. Um, and now the movies are coming out so it’s re-appropriate. Um.

"I'm gettin' kinda tired of this
Pre-publication media blitz
You've got all of muggle kind under your spell

Oh don't you know the whole world's already gone
And reserved a copy at Amazon
How many more books could you sell?
Now give me my book or go to hell!

Oh I need Harry Potter
Like a Grindylow needs water
And as that day approaches my need grows.

Oh Accio Deathly Hallows,
Incendio book sales embargoes;
It'll be like phoenix tears on a broken nose.
Yeah Accio Deathly Hallows.

I'm getting kinda petrified:
What would Ron do if Hermione died?
Or if Voldemort killed Hedwig just for yuks?
(I didn’t know that was going to happen)

I have no confidence
In theories about the half blood prince
And what if Harry's brain is a horcrux?
Oh Holy crap that would freakin' suck!

'Cause we need Harry Potter
Like a Grindylow needs water
And as that day approaches my need grows.

Oh Accio Deathly Hallows,
Incendio book sales embargoes;
It'll be like phoenix tears on a broken nose.
Yeah Accio Deathly Hallows.

Whatever's up the sleeves of J. K. Rowling,
I bet it has to do with Snape unbreakably vowing
To protect that pureblood pus-face Malfoy. 
But in the end I don't think it's gonna matter
If Snape's good or if he's bad
Because the weight of the world rests on our boy,
Yeah, the weight of the world rests on our boy.

'Cause we need Harry Potter
Like a Grindylow needs water
And as that day approaches my need grows.

Oh Accio Deathly Hallows,
Incendio book sales embargoes;
It'll be like phoenix tears on a broken nose.
Yeah Accio Deathly Hallows
Oh Accio Deathly Hallows

But mostly I'm just feelin' sad
I know this could end real bad but
I wish it didn't have to end at all,
Yeah, I wish it didn't have to end at all.

'Cause I couldn't care more about Harry Potter
If Hogwarts was my alma mater
And as that day approaches my need grows.

Oh Accio Deathly Hallows,
Incendio book sales embargoes
It'll feel like phoenix tears on a broken nose;
Yeah Accio Deathly Hallows
Oh Accio Deathly Hallows
Yeah Accio Deathly Hallows
Oh Accio Deathly Hallows"

Thank you to Make a Wish and thank you to Esther.
