Five wicked witches

Five wicked witches

(download lyrics in pdf) 

It’s full moon night, and the witches are flying!

Five wicked witches jumping on the broom

One fell off and bumped her head

Mama called the doctor,

And the doctor said

No more witches jumping on the broom

Four wicked witches jumping on the broom

One fell off and bumped her head

Mama called the doctor,

And the doctor said

No more witches jumping on the broom

Three wicked witches jumping on the broom

One fell off and bumped her head

Mama called the doctor,

And the doctor said

No more witches jumping on the broom

Two wicked witches jumping on the broom

One fell off and bumped her head

Mama called the doctor,

And the doctor said

No more witches jumping on the broom

One wicked witch jumping on the broom

She fell off and bumped her head

Mama called the witch doctor

And the witch doctor said,

Put those witches right to bed.
