Oh you may not think me pretty, But don't judge on what you see, I'll eat myself if you can find A smarter hat than me. You can keep your bowlers black, Your top hats sleek and tall, For I'm the Hogwarts Sorting Hat And I can cap them all. There's nothing hidden in your head The Sorting Hat can't see, So try me on and I will tell you Where you ought to be.
GRYFFINDOR You might belong in Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart. Their daring, nerve, and chivalry set Gryffindors apart.
The Gryffindor house, founded by Godric Gryffindor, values courage, daring, nerve and chivalry above all else. Its mascot is the lion, and its colours are red and gold. Keep in mind, that though Gryffindor is commonly regarded as the 'good' house, not all Gryffindors are 'good'.
HUFFLEPUFF You might belong in Hufflepuff, where they are just and loyal. Those patient Hufflepuffs are true, and unafraid of toil.
Hufflepuff, founded by Helga Hufflepuff, is the most inclusive among the four houses, valuing hard work, patience, friendship and fair play rather than a particular aptitude in its members. Its emblematic animal is the badger, and yellow and black are its colours.
SLYTHERIN Or perhaps in Slytherin, you'll make your real friends. Those cunning folks use any means to achieve their ends.
Slytherin was founded by Salazar Slytherin, and has the characteristics of cunning, ambitious, and hungry for power. Its house mascot is a serpent, and the colours of the house are dark green and sliver.
RAVENCLAW Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw, if you've a ready mind. Where those of wit and learning will always find their kind.
The house of Ravenclaw was founded by Rowena Ravenclaw. This house vales creativity, cleverness, wittiness, intelligence, and knowledge. The animal that calls this house home is the eagle, and the colours are navy blue and bronze (except in the movies where it is navy blue and silver).
