           G 
I hate this place, 
      C               D             G 
I can barely keep the misery off my face, 
             D                       C  
Yeah there's one place i much rather be, 
       D                   C 
Taking transfiguration and arithmancy, 
    G               C                  D 
And hanging with my friends in the owlery, 
    G                             C         
But instead i'm learning parts of speech, 
    D                  G 
And trying not to fall asleep, 
    C                         D                     G 
And avoiding the only girl in school who might like me, 

(Pause)     
           G 
It's so grotesque, 
         C                      D                   G 
When the guy sitting next to me drools all over his desk, 
      D                       C 
And i almost raise my hand to complain, 
           D                  C 
But then i realize i wanna be doin' the same, 
     G                C             D 
So i put my head down on my desk as well, 
    G                      C 
And suddenly im learning a spell, 
   D                      G 
To make my teacher's head swell, 
    C                  
But then he wakes me up, 
    D                G 
And i can't help but yell, 

Engorgio!! 

(Pause) 
           G                 C         G 
This isn't hogwarts this is a concrete box, 
        C                                    G 
And the pictures on the wall are never gonna talk, 
        C              G             C          G 
And the teachers don't care that the kids don't try, 
             C                                    G 
And the most magical thing we have is fluorescent lights, 
         C                                       D 
And they don't put you in hufflepuff if your not cool, 
  C                                            D 
Instead they sort you in the parking lot after school, 
      C                                       D 
And i think if i looked into the mirror of erised, 
       C                                D 
I'd be wearing wizard robes of gold and red, 
        C              D             G 
I'm not sayin' i'm not proud to be a nerd, 
           C               D          G 
But public school ain't no place for a wizard 
            C               D           G 
Yeah public school ain't no place for a wizard 

(Pause) 
             G 
Y'know whats gross, 
         C                     D                   G 
When the lunch meat looks like three day old soggy toast, 
         D               C 
But as i ate it anyway i overheard, 
     D                         C 
This guy i hardly know callin' me a nerd, 
     G                       C             D 
So i cast "sectum sempra" on him inside my mind, 
                  G                     C 
I wish there were house elves makin' my food, 
    D                        G 
And everything was perfectly spiced, 
        C              D            G 
And the only one being rude was the poltergeist, 

(Pause) 
                  G 
And here's what's true, 
       C              D                     G 
I'd do pretty much anything to go to wizard school, 
         D                        C 
I'd even call dolores umbridge my friend, 
      D                             C 
If it meant i'd never have to go to gym again, 
      G                          C                      D 
But i look around at all of this crap that's part of my life, 
   G                  C 
No ghost stalkin' the halls, 
   D                       G 
Or hangin' in the bathroom stalls, 
        C 
And the stairs don't move, 
      D                    G 
Cause there's no stairs at all. 

           G                 C         G 
This isn't hogwarts this is a concrete box, 
        C                                    G

        C              G             C          G 
And the teachers don't care that the kids don't try, 
             C                                    G 
And the most magical thing we have is fluorescent lights, 
         C                                       D
