Music: Ding Dong the Wicked Witch is dead

For our Year 3 performance we will all be singing 'Ding Dong the Wicked Witch is Dead!'

It's very hard to find a good version with clear lyrics for the students to sing, mainly because the movie is now so old! (But still so good...)

I like this version because the lyrics are subtitles, making it easy to learn the song:

A much faster version here (with moderate sound quality) is here:

And finally, terrible quality, but the real version from the film:

The Lyrics:
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!
