Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead

Something for the weekend.  For some unfathomable reason, this weekend seemed the time for the song Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead.

The video of the beginning of the post is of course a version of Ella Fitzgerald’s, a songstress of endless talent.

Here we have the original recording:

Finally, Barbara Streisand tries her hand:

Ding Dong! The Witch is dead. Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch!
Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead.
Wake up – sleepy head, 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!

    If one is referring to nancy pelosi she is not ‘dead’ but has resuscitated herself and will now be the minority leader in Congress…she decapitated all her loyal followers and while they lost, she grasps what power is left to her. This ‘Catholic’ has been the strongest advocate for abortion on demand here and abroad and yet our Bishops continue to consider her a Catholic in good standing and permit her to receive the Eucharist…who is more at fault here – Pelosi believes that this is a matter of personal opinion among the bishops and that she is indeed a Catholic in good standing…Archbishop Burke has been clear and consistent about this – those who publicly stand against the teachings of the Church, in particular regarding the killing of unborn human babies, must not receive Holy Communion…but many Bishops disagree with him and with Church teaching…and so Catholics continue to be confused and lost…shame

    Florin, I am aware that the Lying Worthless Political Hack, as I affectionately refer to soon to be EX-Speaker of the House Pelosi, has such a lust for power that she is going to be minority leader. This of course will keep her in the public eye during the next Congress. As a Republican I can only respond to that news in this manner:

    Would you believe, in my home town earlier this year, the song “Ding dong, the witch is dead” was used at a funeral for some woman unknown to me.
    Fortunately, it was a secular service at a non-denominational crematorium chapel.

    They used to say, “Only in America…..”

    I’m beginning to wonder.

    Well Don, I’d say the gal in question was either crazy or had a great sense of humor, or perhaps her relatives were sadistic!
