Something for the weekend. For some unfathomable reason, this weekend seemed the time for the song Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead.
The video of the beginning of the post is of course a version of Ella Fitzgerald’s, a songstress of endless talent.
Here we have the original recording:
Finally, Barbara Streisand tries her hand:
Ding Dong! The Witch is dead. Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch!
Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead.
Wake up – 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-oh, sing it high, sing it low.
Let them know
The Wicked Witch is dead!
