As mayor of the Munchkin City
In the County of the Land of Oz
I welcome you mostly regally
(But we’ve got to verify if legally)
To see …
If she …
Is morally, ethically, spiritually, physically, positively, absolutely, undeniably DEAD
As Coroner, I must aver, I’ve thoroughly examined her
And she is not merely dead, she’s really most sincerely dead.
So this is a day of independence for all the munchkins and their descendantsWith eternal gratitude to Harold Arlen (music) and Yip Harburg (lyric),
Let the joyous news be spread, the wicked old witch at last is dead.
