Every year September 1st, I'm called to do my duty. To attend the Salem Welcome Feast And show you all my inner beauty. I know you think I'm worn and ugly And should be thrown away, But I hold the key to your future here Starting from today. I have no easy task before me For alone I must decide. By looking into your deepest thoughts I shall tell you which house to reside. There are four houses to choose from: Wolfhowl, Leopardblast, Badgerclaw and Gorgontail. Fantastic beasts of magic lore, Their characters do not fail. What Badgerclaws value most Is hard work, loyalty, and determination. And Leopardblasts believe Great knowledge should be their inspiration. Three words that describe Gorgontail, Are ambitious, sly, and cunning. They thought they should stop at nothing To get what they are craving. And finally there's Wolfhowl, Courageous, noble and brave. They preferred that their students Stay chivalrous to the grave. Four houses great and mighty, All excelling in their own way. Wolfhowl, Leopardblast, Badgerclaw and Gorgontail Would be proud if they were here today. So put me on upon your head, And let's get the sorting underway.
