Last Midnight is a song written by Stephen Sondheim for the musical Into the Woods and is sung in the 2015 adaption by Meryl Streep.


The Witch: Shhhhhhhhhhhhh!

It's the last midnight.
It's the last wish.
It's the last midnight,
Soon it will be boom-
Told a little lie,
Stole a little gold,
Broke a little vow,
Did you?

Had to get your Prince,
Had to get your cow,
Had to get your wish,
Doesn't matter how-
Anyway, it doesn't matter now.

It's the last midnight,
It's the boom-
Nothing but a vast midnight.
Everybody smashed flat!

Nothing we can do.
Not exactly true:
We could always give her the boy...

No, of course what really matters
Is the blame,
Someone you can blame.
Fine, if that's the thing you enjoy,
Placing the blame,
If that's the aim,
Give me the blame-
Just give me the boy.

The Baker, Jack, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood: No!

The Witch: No?

You're so nice.
You're not good,
You're not bad,
You're just nice.
I'm not good,
I'm not nice,
I'm just right.
I'm the Witch.
You're the world.

I'm the hitch.
I'm what no one believes,
I'm the Witch.
You're all liars and thieves,
Like his father,
Like his son will be, too-
Oh, why bother?
You'll just do what you do.

It's the last midnight,
So, goodbye all.
Coming at you fast, midnight-
Soon you'll see the sky fall.

Here, you want a bean?

Have another bean.
Beans were made for making you rich!
Plant them and they soar-
Here, you want some more?
Listen to the roar...
Giants by the score-!
Oh well, you can blame another witch.

It's the last midnight.
It's the last verse.
Now, before it's past midnight,
I'm leaving you my last curse:

I'm leaving you alone.
You can tend the garden, it's yours.
Separate and alone,
Everybody down on all fours.

All right, mother, when?
Lost the beans again!
Punish me the way you did then!
Give me claws and a hunch,
Just away from this bunch
And the gloom
And the doom
And the boom
