Ding Dong the Witch is Dead MP3 

Ding Dong the Witch is Dead
Performer: Munchkins

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 

Ring Round Rosey MP3

Ring Round Rosey
Performers: Group of Children

Ring around a Rosey
Ring around a Rosey, pocketful o' posies
Light bread, sweet bread, squat!
Guess who she told me, tralalalala 
Mr. Red was her lover, tralalalala 
If you love him, hug him! 
If you hate him, stomp!
