I know I look like a hairy troll
but I am not around to be a fancy doll
you put me on your head when you are eleven
and I can bring you the next heaven
For I posses the knowledge you all seek
let me have a mind sneak peak
so put me on your hair
I am very easy to bare

I’ll search your inner mind
and if I deem you to be kind
I’ll know just what to do with such a heart
For Hufflepuff is where you will start

If courage is your fire
And bravery is what you desire
Then am sure you’ll shine
In Gryffindor just fine

Though if you seek the wise
And knowledge is what your prise
Then I know you’ll be excited
To be a Ravenclaw united

If I am to find some cunning wits in your genes
Then I’ll know you want to achieve your end by all means
So then it is mine to say and I know I am not wrong
That it is Slytherin you belong

So put me one, don’t be afraid
Am merely here to provide some aid
In the sorting of you all
Don’t let me fall
I know which house will be fine
For you to be part of its spine

I like how carefully you have chosen your words and the rhyming though a bit out but the lyrics is still creative. A very good effort!

Very creative - I like the first stanza! I would just try and make the rhythem more consistant, but overall, great song!

Your sorting hat song was very good, great riming, it was brilliant. the first verse was a little off, but it was funny about the hairy troll. Keep up the good work!

Some really nice choices of words and rhymes here. Figaro is right that it would come out very unusual as a song since all the verses are different lengths, but I think it could still work. You made a couple of spelling mistakes, and one or two of syntax. Overall good effort though.

#7Chinni Weasley's AvatarChinni Weasley (rated this 8)

great:) but as someone..Lera Kamerat said before me it might've been nice if you mentioned things from the series

#8Lera Kamerat's AvatarLera Kamerat (rated this 8)

I like it, but I was hoping that you might mention some of the past events.

#9Evelyn Wilson's AvatarEvelyn Wilson (rated this 5)

Not bad, but needs work. The structure is all over the place, so I'll only give it a five.

The writing is genious! but if you ever tried to sing it, it just wouldn't work. The syllables per line needs to be controlled, as it is just random.

Oh this is great. I love how well it rhymes and your descriptions of what personality a person needs to be put in each house.

Great work!

I think it's really great, but I was sort of hoping you might mention past events too. Fantastic though!
