lyrics

You call me a villain you whisper my name
Just because I don’t play that wizard’s game
I deal in magic, not illusion and trick
Til a house fell on the road of yellow brick

Those ruby slippers were meant to be mine
But a child was thrown in my way
I would not be denied
So I cursed her with pride
The dark would win this day!

Sweet little child, you’re not my concern
You’re not from around here, but you will soon learn
I will not be jilted, I’ll have what is mine
But take cover when the monkeys fly

That wizard is one wicked mister
Shed not a tear when I lost my sister
A farm house fell out of the sky
But the white opportunist came fly-ing!

A bubble of white just to show her might
Stole from my sister, once gone
Her plan unrolled, lion and scarecrow
And a tin man before the day was done!

Those ruby slippers were meant to be mine
But a child was thrown in my way
I would not be denied
So I cursed her with pride
The dark would win this day!

Sweet little child, you’re not my concern
You’re not from around here, but you will soon learn
I will not be jilted, I’ll have what is mine
But take cover when the monkeys fly

I know what I am
I am sin with a hat
Everyone loves a good witch
But it’s so good to be bad

Emerald tears still melt my heart
But a gambit was headed my way
So I’ll warn you, she’ll drop a house on you, too!
If Glinda thinks theres something to gain

Beauty and danger go hand in hand
The north wind is not what she seems
She was the one to win in the end
No witches, no wizard, just she!

Those ruby slippers were meant to be mine
But a child was thrown in my way
I would not be denied
So I cursed her with pride
The dark would win this day!

Sweet little child, you’re not my concern
You’re not from around here, but you’ll soon learn
I will not be jilted, I’ll have what is mine
But take cover when the monkeys fly
Yes take cover when the monkeys fly
