Vote for Dumbledore's Army here

"'Yeah, the DA's good,' said Ginny. 'Only let's make it stand for Dumbledore's Army, because that's the Ministry's worst fear, isn't it?'
There was a good deal of appreciative murmuring and laughter at this.
'All in favour of the DA?' said Hermione bossily, kneeling up on her cushion to count. 'That's a majority - motion passed!'"

 - J K Rowling Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Dumbledore's Army - Commentary

Dumbledore’s Army is a song written in the boogie-woogie style of the bands of the 1930s/1940s, in particular the Andrews Sisters.  For those of you who don’t know them, the Andrews Sisters were particularly famous for their morale boosting music during World War II, always singing in close three part harmony together.  We decided to write Dumbledore’s Army in the style of the Andrews Sisters as their rabble rousing encouragement fitted perfectly with Hermione’s attempt to get people to join the DA.  

Not only do Ginny and the Weasleys happily welcome back Hermione in this song, we also have a new recruit; Luna Lovegood joins us for the very first time! (Fred and George don’t feature on this song as they needed more time to re-fill their stock of skiving snack-boxes.)  Ginny had great fun recording this with Luna, but unfortunately Hermione got a bit tired of constantly reminding her in which direction the microphone was.

Ginny, Hermione and Luna invite us to join Dumbledore’s Army, with a toe-tapping upbeat song, complete with some (rather unsuccessful) rhyming improvisation from the girls!  Look out for our long list of DA members, we had great fun trying to fit them all in!

 

Dumbledore's Army - Lyrics

All:     C’mon everybody gather around

The piano’s beatin' out a boogie sound

The trumpet's calling you to join toot toot
It goes tootdidliada tootdidliada toot toot toot

 

We got a meetin' and it’s all been planned

So grab a Butterbeer and make a stand
Oh honey don’t be scared it’s gonna be fun
So join together grab your wand and fight as one
 

We’re Dumbledore’s army

Oh won’t you join the army
We’re Dumbledore’s army
So come and join the army
 

There’s lots of Gryffindors it’s gonna be swell

Some Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws came as well
Zacharias, Michael, Katie and Dean
Susan, Colin, Dennis, Neville Fred George and Lee
 
Parvarti, Padma, Hannah and Lavender
Cho was dragging Marietta with her
Ernie, Justin, Terry, Anthony too
Alicia and Angelina make up the crew
We’re Dumbledore’s army
Oh won’t you join the army
We’re Dumbledore’s army
So come and join the army
                    Ginny:          Play it plink plank Percy
                    Luna:            Oh we forgot Seamus!
                    Hermione:    He hasn’t joined yet
                    Ginny:          Riff raff Ron, Chattanooga Charlie,

                                         And Boogie-woogie Bill!

Now listen Harry’s got something to say
All:     He says we’re gonna call ourselves the DA
He’s gonna teach Defence against the Dark Arts
And oh so much work to do so let’s make a start
Expelliarmus is the first thing to learn
So grab a partner and you’ll all get a turn
There’s jinxes we can use against you know who
And hopefully we’ll get an O in our exams too
We’re Dumbledore’s army
Oh won’t you join the army
We’re Dumbledore’s army
So come and join the army

                    Ginny:           Rhyme with me ladies! Come join the crowd.

                    Hermione:     Sing it out loud.

                    Luna:             That cloud looks like – oh no!

                    Hermione:     Shhh! It doesn’t matter.

All:     We’re Dumbledore’s army
Oh won’t you join the army
We’re Dumbledore’s army
So come and join the army
Oh won’t you join
Oh won’t you join
Oh won’t you join the army!
