The most persistent earworm of all time?

| | Comments (4)

Is the one currently playing EVERY SINGLE DAY at my house. From what is called the "Dorofy movie":

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!

There, I hope I've transmitted it on to you, leaving room in my head for the 2nd most persistent earworm:

Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-do
I have another puzzle for you
Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-da-dee
If you are wise, you'll listen to me

Help me, help me!!!!!


Those are some serious earworms. I couldn't get "Mr. Sandman" out of my head after writing a parody "Mr. Spamman".

Forgive me for I know not what I bestow upon the Blogosphere:

It's a world of laughter
A world of tears
It's a world of hopes
And a world of fears
There's so much that we share
That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all

There is just one moon
And one golden sun
And a smile means
Friendship to ev'ryone
Though the mountains divide
And the oceans are wide
It's a small world after all

It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world

What?! No "Oh ee oh, eeoh um, oh ee oh, eeoh um!"

When we were little we thought they were singing:

Oreo. Oh yum. Oreo. Oh yum.

Wishful thinking?
