Part of the Team
(to the tune of “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid.)
Scene: McLaggen is trying out for position of Keeper, using his giant ego to try to persuade team captain, Harry, that he is worth the spot more than anybody, especially that Weasley kid.
Look at this skill
Isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t you think that my training’s complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the one, the Keeper with everything?
Look at that save,
How many great tricks can one guy unfold?
Looking at me here you’d think, “Sure, he’s got everything!”
I’ve done ducking and feinting a’ plenty
I’ve blocked incoming quaffles galore
Want dodging bludgers? I’ve dodged twenty.
But who cares?
No big deal!
I want more!
I wanna be where the players are
I wanna see, wanna see ‘em flying
Seeking around for the, What’s that word again? Oh. Snitch.
Watching the game you don’t get too far
Brooms are required for playing, winning
Victory laps ‘round that, What’s the word again? Oh. Pitch.
Up where they zoom
Up where they fly
Up where they soar around in the sky
I wanna be
Part of that team
What would I give
If I could live blocking the quaffle?
What would I pay
To spend a day saving those goals?
‘Cuz in the stands
It sure gets bland
If you must reprimand the keeper
Letting goals in, sick of playin’, ready to land
And ready to show what I’ve got to show
Flexing my muscles and making girls faint
Being keeper is for what I truly do yearn
When’s it my turn?
Wouldn’t I love,
Love to be blocking goals up above?
Just let me be
Part of that team!
