When I meet the Wizard
Once I prove my worth
And when I meet the Wizard
What I’ve waited for since- since birth!
And with all his Wizard wisdom
By my looks, he won’t be blinded
Do you think the Wizard is dumb?
Or, like Munchkins, so small-minded?
He’ll say to me, “I see who you truly are –
A girl on whom I can rely!”
And that’s how we’ll begin
The Wizard and I
Once I’m with the Wizard
My whole life will change
Cause once you’re with the Wizard
No one thinks you’re strange!
No father is not proud of you
No sister acts ashamed
And all of Oz has to love you
When by the Wizard, you’re acclaimed
And this gift or this curse I have inside
Maybe at last, I’ll know why
When we are hand in hand
The Wizard and I..
And one day, he’ll say to me
“Elphaba, a girl who is so superior
Shouldn’t a girl who’s so good inside
Have a matching exterior?
And since folks here to an absurd degree
Seem fixated on your verdigris
Would it be all right by you
If I de-greenify you?”
And though of course, that’s not important to me
“All right, why not?” I’ll reply
Oh, what a pair we’ll be The Wizard and I
Yes, what a pair we’ll be The Wizard and-
My future is unlimited
And I’ve just had a vision
Almost like a prophecy, I know
It sounds truly crazy
And true, the vision’s hazy
But I swear, someday there’ll be
A celebration throughout Oz
That’s all to do with me!
And I’ll stand there with the Wizard
Feeling things I’ve never felt
And though I’d never show it
I’ll be so happy, I could melt!
And so it will be
For the rest of my life
And I’ll want nothing else till I die
Held in such high esteem
When people see me, they will scream
For half of Oz’s favorite team
The Wizard and I
