Last Midnight Lyrics


It's the last midnight
It's the last wish
It's the last midnight
Soon it will be boom
Told a little lie
Stole a little gold
Broke a little vow
Did you?

Had to get your prince
Had to get your cow
And to get your wish
Doesn't matter how
Anyway, it doesn't matter now

It's the last midnight
It's the boom
Nothing but a vast midnight
Everybody smashed flat!

Nothing we can do
Not exactly true
We could always give her the boy

No, of course what really matters is the blame
Someone you can blame
Fine, if that's the thing you enjoy
Placing the blame
If that's the aim
Give me the blame
Just give me the boy

No! (No)

You're so nice
You're not good
You're not bad
You're just nice
I'm not good
I'm not nice
I'm just right
I'm the witch
You're the world

I'm a hitch
I'm what no one believes
I'm the witch
You're all liars and thieves
Like his father
Like his son will be, too
Oh, why bother?
You'll just do what you do

It's the last midnight
So, goodbye all
Coming at you fast, midnight
Soon you'll see the sky fall
Here, you want a bean?
Have another bean
Beans were made for making you rich!
Plant them and they soar
Here, you want some more?
Listen to the roar
Giants by the score!
Well, you can blame another witch

It's the last midnight
It's the last verse
Now, before it's past midnight
I'm leaving you my last curse

I'm leaving you alone
You can tend the garden, it's yours
Separate and alone
Everybody down on all fours

All right, mother, when?
Lost the beans again!
Punish me the way you did then!
Give me claws and a hunch
Just away from this bunch
And the gloom
And the doom
And the boom

Last Midnight Meanings

In Grimm's Fairy Tales most characters experience their journey 3 times. Cinderella goes to the ball three times, Little Red Riding Hood visits her grandmother 3 times ( and steps off the path and into her sexual awakening), Rapunzel lets down her hair three times and Jack climbs the beanstalk three times. The last midnight is the characters last chance to either have a happy ending or face the consequences of their wish which is typically linked to cheating, greed, theft and other lessons that humans try to teach their children about. In this song, the witch tells the cast that there's no more time, no more wishes it's the last midnight. Pull it together or you won't have your happy ending. Work together to defeat the giants in their midst.
