Well, I know I’ll never get to see that enchanted sky
I know I’ll never get on my broomstick and fly
I know that I, I’m stuck here on my own Privet Drive
I’ve been waiting nearly ten years for my letter to arrive

But even Privet Drive, even Privet Drive
Even Privet Drive is magic with them by my side

From the letters from no one and the cupboard under the stairs
Sorting Hat, the dormitories and the Devil’s Snare
Three-headed dogs, midnight duels and Quidditch
The troll in the dungeons, the Golden Snitch
The Mirror of Erised and Beauxbatons
Diagon Alley, fire-breathing dragons
Extendable Ears, the Forbidden Forest
Fang the bloodhound, Mrs Norris
Hagrid’s rock cakes, Grindylows
The Magical Menagerie and The Burrow
Comet Three Sixties, lightning scars
The House Cup, the flying cars
Transfiguration, the greater good
The Chamber of Secrets and Oliver Wood
NEWTs and OWLs, travelling by Floo
Chocolate Frogs and You-Know-Who
Giant spiders, giant chess, giant snakes
The Room of Requirement, Severus Snape
Ollivanders Wand Shop, the witch and the trolley
The Ministry of Magic, Arthur and Molly
The Leaky Cauldron, Lumos and Nox
The Battle of Hogwarts and Dobby’s socks
The Standard Book of Spells
It’s real for us, always, and all was well

And even Privet Drive, and even Privet Drive
Even Privet Drive is magic with them by my side
Even Privet Drive, even Privet Drive
Even Privet Drive is magic with them by my side

Oh, the ring, the locket, the cup and the diary
The lost diadem, the snake and Harry
Goblins, pixies, the hospital wing
That time that Cedric found something
Werewolves, Pensieves, Metamorphmagi
The Whomping Willow, I must not tell lies
Weasleys’ Wizarding Wheezes, Azkaban
Crookshanks and Voldemort’s annual plan
Gilderoy Lockhart, all of my pride
Giant squid, Moody’s mad eye
The Deathly Hallows, the Dementor’s Kiss
Wait until my father hears about this
The House of Hufflepuff, the House of Gryffindor
The House of Slytherin, the House of Ravenclaw
And Occlumency lessons and Apparition
Platform nine-and-three-quarters at King’s Cross station
What is the function of a rubber duck?
Moaning Myrtle, liquid luck
Deluminators, unicorn blood
Polyjuice Potion, Cornelius Fudge
Triwizard Tournament, the DA
Patronus Charms, Dumbledore is gay
No, dragons are just misunderstood-stood
I solemnly swear that I am up to no good

And even Privet Drive, and even Privet Drive
Even Privet Drive is magic with them by my side
Even Privet Drive, even Privet Drive
Even Privet Drive is magic with them by my side

Even Privet Drive, even Privet Drive
Even Privet Drive is magic with them by my side
Even Privet Drive, even Privet Drive
Even Privet Drive is magic with them by my side

Even Privet Drive, even Privet Drive
Even Privet Drive is magic with them by my side
Even Privet Drive, even Privet Drive
Even Privet Drive is magic with them by my side
