Last Midnight

WITCH:
Shhhhhhhhhh!

It's the last midnight
It's the last wish
It's the last midnight
Soon it will be boom...
Squish!
Told a little lie,
Stole a little gold,
Broke a little vow,
Did you?
Had to get your Prince,
Had to get your cow,
Have to get your wish,
Doesn't matter how--
Anyway, it doesn't matter now

It's the last midnight,
It's the boom...
Splat!
Nothing but a vast midnight,
Everybody smashed flat!

Nothing we can do
Not exactly true:
We can always give her the boy...
No?
No, of course what really matters
Is the blame,
Somebody to blame
Fine, if that's the thing you enjoy,
Placing the blame,
If that's the aim,
Give me the blame...
Just give me the boy

THE OTHERS:
No!

WITCH:
No?

You're so nice
You're not good,
You're not bad,
You're just nice
I'm not good,
I'm not nice,
I'm just right
I'm the Witch
You're the world

I'm the hitch
I'm what no one believes,
I'm the Witch
You're all liars and thieves,
Like his father,
Like his son will be too--
Oh, why bother?
You'll just do what you do

It's the last midnight,
So goodbye, all,
Coming at you fast, midnight--
Soon you'll see the sky fall

Here, you want a bean?
Have another bean
Beans were made for making you rich!
Plant them and they soar--
Here, you want some more?
Listen to the roar...
Giants by the score--!
Oh well, you can blame another witch

It's the last midnight,
It's the last verse
Now, before it's past midnight,
I'm leaving you my last curse:

I'm leaving you alone
You can tend the garden, it's yours
Separate and alone,
Everybody down on all fours

All right, Mother, when?
Lost the beans again!
Punish me the way you did then!
Give me claws and a hunch,
Just away from this bunch
And the gloom
And the doom
And the boom...
Cruuuunch!
