Good news! She's dead!
The Witch of the West is dead!
The wickedest witch there ever was
The enemy of all of us here in Oz
Is dead!
Good news!
Good news!
Verse 2
Look! It's Glinda!
Verse 3
Fellow Ozians:
Let us be glad
Let us be grateful
Let us rejoicify that goodness could subdue
The wicked workings of you-know-who
Isn't it nice to know
That good will conquer evil?
The truth we all believe'll by and by
Outlive a lie
For you and
Verse 4
No one mourns the wicked
Verse 5
No one cries "They won't return!"
Verse 6
No one lays a lily on their grave
Verse 7
The good man scorns the wicked!
Verse 8
Through their lives, our children learn
Verse 9
What we miss, when we misbehave:
Verse 10
And Goodness knows
The wicked's lives are lonely
Goodness knows
The wicked die alone
It just shows when you're wicked
You're left only
On your own
Verse 11
Yes, Goodness knows
The wicked's lives are lonely
Goodness knows
The wicked cry alone
Nothing grows for the wicked
They reap only
What they've sown
Verse 12
Are people born wicked? Or do they have
Wickedness thrust upon them? After all, she had
A father. She had a mother, as so many do:

How I hate to go and leave you lonely
Verse 14
That's alright, it's only just one night
Verse 15
But know that you're here in my heart
While I'm out of your sight
Verse 16
And like every family, they had their secrets
Verse 17
Have another drink, my dark-eyed beauty
I've got one more night left, here in town
So have another drink of green elixir
And we'll have ourselves a little mixer
Have another little swallow, little lady,
And follow me down
Verse 18
And of course, from the moment she was born,
She was, well, different
Verse 19
It's coming
Now?
Verse 20
The baby's coming
Verse 21
And how!

I see a nose
I see a curl
It's a healthy, perfect,
Lovely, little
Verse 23
Sweet Oz!
Verse 24
What is it? What's wrong?
Verse 25
How can it be?
Verse 26
What does it mean?
Verse 27
It's atrocious
Verse 28
It's obscene!
Verse 29
Like a froggy, ferny cabbage
The baby is unnaturally
Green!
Verse 30
Take it away, take it away!
Verse 31
So you see, it couldn't have been easy!

No one mourns the wicked!
Now at last, she's dead and gone!
Now at last, there's joy throughout the land
And goodness knows
We know what goodness is
Goodness knows
The wicked die alone
Verse 33
She died alone
Verse 34
Woe to those
Who spurn what goodness is
They are shown
No one mourns the wicked
Verse 35
Good news!
Verse 36
No one mourns the wicked!
Verse 37
Good news!
Verse 38
No one mourns the wicked!
Wicked!
Wicked!
