about

The wicked witch in the tale of Hansel & Gretel exults in her cleverness at getting young lost children to work for just desserts.

lyrics

For chores and such I've little time
To toil and fuss of grit and grime,
I'm quite content to sit and relax
While others break their backs.

For labour at a tiny price
I've found a source that will suffice,
Those kiddies are cheap as they get
Like Marie Antoinette -

"Just let them eat cake."
Enough so they'd burst,
When they finish the work
They'll get their just desserts.

Gretel, do ya think that she'll settle?
I've been working all day without pay
Will I slave to the grave
On the roads that I'll pave
Oh won't somebody save me!

Hansel, do ya think that she'll cancel?
I'm all out of hustle so call in the muscle,
The deal was a meal but I think she's renegging
Oh somebody help me I'm down on my knees here begging.

Groveling, griping, sniveling squirts,
You'll get your just desserts.

"Just let them eat cake."
Enough so they'd burst,
When they finish the work
They'll get their just desserts.
They'll get their just desserts.
