"'I never really gave up on you,' she said. 'Not really. I always hoped...Hermione told me to get on with life, maybe go out with some other people, relax a bit around you, because I never used to be able to talk if you were in the room, remember? And she thought you might take a bit more notice if I was a bit more - myself.'

'Smart girl, that Hermione,' said Harry, trying to smile."

Hermione's Plan - Commentary

This is the first Ginny and the Weasleys song to feature Hermione Granger (who enjoyed organising everyoneís rehearsal schedules) along with a most impressive vocal line-up including: Ginny (of course), Ron (after much encouragement), Bill, Charlie, Percy, Fred and George and by special invitation, Dean, Neville and Seamus who joined the boys to complete ĎHermioneís Choirí!  Arthur consented to play the trumpet, while Molly stuck to making everyone endless bacon sandwiches and cups of tea.  Everyone had so much fun singing this song it was almost a shame Harry wasnít allowed to join in. 

Ginny was inspired to write this song after a conversation with Hermione during which Hermione suggested that the best way to win over Harry's affections would be for Ginny to just relax and be herself. We chose a Gospel style for this song because it fitted well with the two lead vocalists and we wanted a choir to echo and emphasise  Hermione's wonderful advice. (We also suspect that when it comes to musical style Hermione is a bit of a diva).

Fred and George insisted on wearing gospel robes for the recording session and they couldnít resist sewing Percyís sleeves together as a joke, poor Percy.

 

 Hermione's Plan - Lyrics

Ginny:  Iíve waited such a long long time
To be with him
Iím at the back of a long long line
To get close to him
How can I get him to notice me?
Maybe Iíll listen to Hermione
Coz sheís got a plan
Hermione:   Címon and listen to Hermione
Hermione:    Iíll tell you Ďbout my plan, to get your man
Just play it cool as ice, take my advice
It wonít take Harry long to catch on
That youíre his perfect girl
If you be yourself
Choir:    Be yourself, be yourself, be yourself
Hermione:   Then you canít go wrong
 
Ginny:   So if Iím just myself, go out with someone else
Choir:   Then you will get your man
Ginny:   That doesnít work for me, I just want Harry
Choir:   Gotta trust the plan
Ginny:   So whoís it gonna be?
Hermione:   Look around and youíll see
Ginny:   Thereís no-one else for me
Hermione:   Ginny listen to me
Ginny:   No other boy will do
Hermione:   But theyíre all after you
Choir:   Itís Hermioneís plan, Itís Hermioneís plan
Ginny:   She said
Hermione:   Listen to me I got a plan you see,
Címon and listen to Hermione
 
Chorus
Choir:   Who always gets full marks in every test? Hermione
Who knows the way to Harryís heart the best? Hermione
Whoís gonna make your daydreams all come true? Hermione
Whoís gonna make sure Harry falls for you? Hermione
Itís Hermioneís plan, Itís Hermioneís plan
Ginny:   She said
Hermione:   Listen to me I got a plan you see,
Címon and listen to Hermione
Chorus
Ginny:   So Iíll do what you say, I do it all your way
Choir:   You got it thatís the plan
Ginny:   Iíll put my trust in you, what have I got to lose
Choir:   Youíre gonna get your man
Ginny:   But Harryís so divine
Hermione:   Itís gonna take some time
Ginny:   Iíll put him out of my mind
Hermione:   Iím sure youíre gonna be fine
Ginny:   Youíve been such a good friend
Ginny & Hermione:   Itís gonna work in the end
Choir:   Itís Hermioneís plan, Itís Hermioneís plan
Ginny:   She said
Hermione:   Listen to me I got a plan you see,
Címon and listen to Hermione
