Ding-dong the witch is dead

I watched the Wizard of Oz twice last night, and can’t get this hypnotic tune out of my head:

Ding-dong the witch is dead 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

Wicked Witch of the WestNot sure why I like this tune so much. The rhymes? Cleverness? Passion? Humanity? Triumphant? Reminiscent? Triumph over evil? Jubilation of justice? Whatever the case, I hum this tune frequently. I wonder if she was green, too?
