We’re Off to See the Wizard song lyrics

We’re Off to See the Wizard song lyrics, from The Wizard of Oz

Also known as Follow the Yellow Brick Road, We’re Off to See the Wizard was sung three times during The Wizard of Oz — €”as a duet between Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland) and the Scarecrow (Ray Bolger), as a trio between Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland), the Scarecrow (Ray Bolger) and the Tin Man (Buddy Ebsen), and as a quartet with Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland), the Scarecrow (Ray Bolger), the Tin Man (Buddy Ebsen), and the Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr).

For those who don’t realize it, Buddy Ebsen was originally cast as the Tin Man, and it’s his voice that’€™s heard in the song.  He was replaced by Jack Haley in the role when he developed a severe allergy to the aluminum-based original makeup for the Tin Man, and had to be hospitalized, but the song had already been recorded.

If ever oh ever a Wiz! there was The Wizard of Oz is one because,
Because, because, because, because, because.
Because of the wonderful things he does.
