A Bunny

I hate this place
I can barely keep the misery off my face

Yeah there's one place I'd much rather be
Taking Transfiguration and Arithmancy
And hanging with my friends in the Owlery

But instead I'm learning parts of speech
And trying not to fall asleep
And avoiding the only girl in school who might like me

It's so grotesque
When the guy sitting next to me drools all over his desk
And I almost raise my hand to complain
But then I realize that I wanna be doing the same
So I put my head down on my desk as well
And suddenly I'm learning a spell
To make my teacher's head swell
But then he wakes me up and I can't help but yell
"Engorgio!"

This isn't Hogwarts
This is a concrete box
And the pictures on the wall are never gonna talk
And the teachers don't care if the kids don't try
And the most magical thing we have is fluorescent lights
And they don't put you in Hufflepuff if you're not cool
Instead they sort you in the parking lot after school
And I think if I looked into the Mirror of Erised
I'd be wearing wizard robes with gold and red
I'm not saying I'm not proud to be a nerd
But public school ain't no place for a wizard
Yeah public school ain't no place for a wizard

You know what's gross
When the lunch meat looks like three day old soggy toast
But as I ate it anyway I overheard
This guy I hardly know calling me a nerd
So I cast Sectum Sempra on him inside my mind

I wish there were house elves making my food
And everything was perfectly spiced
And the only one being rude was the poltergeist

And here's what's true
I'd do pretty much anything to go to wizard school
I'd even call Dolores Umbridge my friend
If it meant I'd never have to go to gym again
But I look around at all of this crap that's part of my life
No ghosts stalking the halls or hanging in the bathroom stalls
And the stairs don't move 'cause there's no stairs at all

This isn't Hogwarts
This is a concrete box
And the pictures on the wall are never gonna talk
And the teachers don't care if the kids don't try
And the most magical thing we have is fluorescent lights
And they don't put you in Hufflepuff if you're not cool
Instead they sort you in the parking lot after school
And I think if I looked into the Mirror of Erised
I'd be wearing wizard robes with gold and red
I'm not saying I'm not proud to be a nerd
But public school ain't no place for a wizard
Yeah public school ain't no place for a wizard

You wanna just take that one?

That one was great! I wrote that song for three reasons. One, because I truly believe the school system in this country to be degrading quickly.

I think we could learn a few things from Hogwarts. Two, because today Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince came out, and three, because it is very nearly the third anniversary of "Accio (Akkio-Osh-Kosh-B'gockio) Deathly Hallows", the song that kicked the Vlogbrothers into the mainstream. Katherine and I went to the midnight showing of Half-Blood Prince last night and it was awesome.

I saw Nerdfighters there; thank you guys for hanging out, that was fun. And there are also other Harry Potter things going on today! There's a Harry Potter Truth or Fail so you can test your mental Harry Potter might - guest hosted by none other than Kristina Horner of the Parselmouths and the Five Awesome Girls.

And speaking of awesome girls and wizard wrock bands, also Lauren Fairweather from the Moaning Myrtles and I recorded a song together and we just did the video for that and I am now out of time so bye!
