  • Once there was a wicked witch in the lovely land of Oz
    And a wickeder, wickeder, wickeder witch there never, never was
    She filled the folks in Munchkin land with terror and with dread
    'Till one fine day from Kansas way a cyclone caught a house
    That brought the wicked, wicked witch her doom
    As she was flying on her broom
    For the house fell on her head and the coroner pronounced her dead
    And thru the town the joyous news was spread

    Ding-dong, the witch is dead! Which old witch? The wicked witch
    Ding-dong, the wicked witch is dead
    Wake up, you sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed
    Wake up, the wicked witch is dead!
    She's gone where the goblins go below, below, below, yo ho
    Let's open up and sing, and ring the bells out
    Ding-dong! the merry-o sing it high, sing it low
    Let them know the wicked witch is dead

    Ding-dong, the witch is dead! Which old witch? The wicked witch
    Ding-dong, the wicked witch is dead
    Wake up, you sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed
    Wake up, the wicked witch is dead!
    She's gone where the goblins go below, below, below, yo ho
    Let's open up and sing, and ring the bells out
    Ding-dong! the merry-o sing it high, sing it low
    Let them know the wicked witch is dead
