"Purgatory, Here We Come" is a song from "Hot, Bothered and Bedeviled." It is a parody of "California, Here I Come" from the musical Bombo.

Lyrics[]

Yakko, Wakko, and Dot:
Purgatory, here we come
So long, Hades, and devil scum
Yakko:
Where fires will spire into the night
Wakko and Dot:
Where boulders will smolder
Yakko, Wakko, and Dot:
Sizzling bright!
Yakko:
The afterlife's cruel politics
Charon:
Sends us on the River Styx
Yakko:
At our feet, flames take their licks,
Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and Charon:
Oh, Purgatory, here we come!

Trivia[]

  • This is actually the censored version of the song. According to Tom Reugger, starting at Yakko's second solo line, the original lyrics were:
Yakko:
God and his cruel politics,
Charon:
Sends us to the River Styx
Yakko:
Flames will be our crucifix.
