about

Wizard rock band The Moaning Myrtles reunite on a recording for the first time since 2009 for a song about Myrtle's scene in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, as well as the reveal of her full name.

lyrics

Hey there! It's been a while.
You missed a lot, so listen here
Ghost hasn't gone out of style
But I could've sworn it's been nineteen years

Oh this must be my lucky day
Who stumbled in but a couple of boys
Now I am so happy to say
I snagged a Potter and a Malfoy!

Wuh oh wuh oh I've got a reputation
Wuh oh and it's no cause for celebration
So I'm saying hello to the next generation
You can call me Myrtle Elizabeth Warren
Myrtle Elizabeth Warren
Myrtle Elizabeth Warren

My job has changed since we last met
I advocate for human rights
Remotely taking on each threat
So call your reps and join the fight

When people tried to silence me
I stood my ground and I resisted
Because we need equality
And nevertheless, I persisted

Wuh oh wuh oh I've got a reputation
Wuh oh and yeah it's cause for celebration
So I'm standing up for the next generation
You can call me Myrtle Elizabeth Warren
Myrtle Elizabeth Warren
Myrtle Elizabeth Warren

Nevertheless, I persisted (repeat)

You can call me Myrtle Elizabeth Warren
Myrtle Elizabeth Warren
Myrtle Elizabeth Warren.
