These Beasts Are Fantastic!

about

The first of hopefully many "Fantastic Beasts" songs, as well as the first single from our upcoming record. We'd like to think that this is a sort of theme song for Newt.

lyrics

Did you know you should never cuddle a Sphinx?
And if you ever meet a werewolf
Know there’s a human there underneath
It might not surprise you Yetis really like snow
And nifflers will try to commandeer all your gold

But I swear,

These beasts are fantastic
Zoology’s the bomb
I could write about it until dawn
These beasts are fantastic
Menageries of awe
Just watch out for their teeth and claws
I just want to write
A book that just might
Let people know they’re not bad
Man, these critters are rad

Did you know that cats and kneazles can interbreed?
And if you ever eat some murtlap...
...tentacles, you might just repel jinxes
And I don't know why flobberworms are a bore
They’re nothing compared to the grand unicorn

And I swear,

These beasts are fantastic
Zoology’s the best
I can’t deny it; I’m obsessed
These beasts are fantastic
Menageries of awe
But watch out for their poison claws!
I just want to write
A book that just might
Let people know they’re not bad
Man, these critters are rad

I’m travelin’ with my suitcase
And New York seems to be a cool place
Oh dang it, my critters escaped
And now this movie is a big chase

I just want to write

And I swear,
I swear,

These beasts are fantastic
Zoology’s the bomb
I could write about it until dawn
These beasts are fantastic
Menageries of awe
Just watch out for their poison claws!
I just want to write
A book that just might
Let people know they’re not bad
Man, these critters are rad

I just want to write
I just want to write
I just want to write
I just want to write
