Ding-dong the witch is dead.Yeah, the munchkins had cause to celebrate, but even they wanted to know:
Which old witch? The wicked witch.
Ding-dong the wicked witch is dead.
Wake up you sleepyhead.
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!
But we've got to verify it legallyIn Oz, the munchkins get their proof:

Undeniably and reliably dead.
As Coroner, I thoroughly examined herNow, I'm not questioning that he's dead (though dumping the body in the ocean so quickly is a little strange). I'm just saying the whole "morally, ethically, spiritually" part is the problem, rather than the "physically" part. It's not as if the guy didn't have a whole lot of overzealous followers.

She's really most sincerely dead.
But, why should we worry about that? That would require thought and sincere consideration of foreign policy that isn't exactly causally innocent.
Don't you agree it's more fun to sing? Sing it with me again, friends, one more time:
Ding dong, the witch is dead.Even though, as I listen as I type, NPR reports, "The threat could be higher now that he's dead."
Shot in the head,
He's good and dead...
