    As Coroner I must aver,
    I thoroughly examined her.
    And she’s not only merely dead,
    she’s really most sincerely dead.

    Then this is a day of Independence For all the Munchkins and their descendants

    If any.

    Yes, let the joyous news be spread
    The wicked Old Witch at last is dead!

    there was a wicked witch
    In the lovely land of OZ
    And a wickeder, wickeder,
    Wickeder witch that never, ever was
    She filled the folks in Munchkin Land
    With terror and with dread
    Till one fine day from Kansas
    A house fell on her head
    And the coroner pronounced her: DEAD
    And through the town the joyous news went running
    The joyous news that the wicked old witch
    Was finally done in
    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 that bed
    Wake up! The wicked old witch is dead!
    She’s gone where the goblins go
    Below, below, below – yo-ho!
    Let’s open up and sing
    And ring those bells out…
    Sing the news out!
    Ding-Dong! The merry-o
    Sing it high and sing it low
    Let them know the wicked old witch is dead
    Why everyone’s glad
    She took such a crownin’
    Bein’ hit by a house
    Is even worse than drownin’
    Let ’em know the wicked old witch is dead!!!
