The Lyrics

It's a bitch being a wicked witch, ain't it?
Ovens in me lair, baking smells and making noise
Ovens in me lair, cooking girls and little boys
And I don't know if I’m being ghoulish, maybe I'm just a bitch
But I'm typecast as somebody evil
And it's all 'cause I'm a wicked witch

Ovens in me lair, and they're where I bake the roof
Ovens in me lair, gingerbread ain't waterproof
But with windows made out of thin sugar, and a candy-cane drain
There is always a draught in bad weather
And it's always damp here when it rains

Ovens in me lair, Ovens in me lair, oh no

Ovens in me lair, good for cooking, hot and slow
Ovens in me lair, Set for Gretel and her bro'
And I'm waiting for Hansel to fatten, but still he hasn't grown
Does he think I'm so dumb to believe him
That his finger is that chicken bone

Ovens in me lair, Damn! That Gretel pushed me in
Ovens in me lair, Damn! In here, it's hot as sin
And I know that they're finding my treasure, and now they know that they're rich
But unless very soon I am leaving
Then they'll also be eating roast witch

Ovens in me lair, Ovens in me lair, ooh ow
(Repeat 'till done: at 40mins per kilo, approx 20hrs, gas mark 6)
