Welcome to the Kingdom of Ralph Wah-Wah
The year is 4918652
Here in Wah-Wah Kingdom, there is just one rule
Wishing is the only thing that you can’t do
It’s a dangerous hobby and it’s illegal!

Lord Ralph Wah-Wah had decided long ago
That wishing will make you break out in tears
So His Highness brought about the Wishing Law
Now Wishing has become our most dreaded fear
It’s a dangerous hobby and it’s illegal!

The road to hell, is paved with empty wishing wells
The pearly gates are closed forever so we wait
But we’re not sad, for the wishing fad
In fact we’re glad, that we are not ever bad

‘Cos if you're bad and if you make a wish
You’ll meet he Wisher Washer down the road
He doesn’t care if you are wool or perma-pressed
He takes your mind and washes it in the next load
It drip dries through your eyes

The road to hell, is paved with empty wishing wells
The pearly gates are closed forever so we wait
But we’re not sad, for the wishing fad
In fact we’re glad, that we are not ever bad

Wishing is the only thing that you can’t do
It’s a dangerous hobby and it’s illegal!
Dangerous hobby and it’s so illegal!
Dangerous hobby, it’s illegal!
