Madame Morrible: Oh, Elphaba--Many years have I waitedFor a gift like yours to appearWhy, I predict the WizardCould make you hisMagic Grand Vizier!My dear, my dearI'll write at once to the WizardTell him of you in advanceWith a talent like yours, dearThere is a defin-ish chanceIf you work as you shouldYou'll be making good
Idina Menzel (Elphaba): Did that really just happen?Have I actually understood?This weird quirk I've triedTo suppress or hideIs a talent that couldHelp me meet the WizardIf I make goodSo I'll make good
When I meet the WizardOnce I prove my worthAnd then I meet the WizardWhat I've waited for since--since birth!And with all his Wizard wisdomBy my looks he won't be blindedDo you think the Wizard is dumb?Or like Munchkins, so small-minded?No! He'll say to me,"I see who you truly are--A girl on whom I can rely!"And that's how we'll beginThe Wizard and I
Once I'm with the WizardMy whole life will changeCause once you're with the WizardNo one thinks you're strange!No father is not proud of youNo sister acts ashamedAnd all of Oz has to love youWhen by the Wizard you're acclaimed!And this gift or this curseI have insideMaybe at last I'll know whyWhen we are hand in handThe Wizard and I!
And one day, he'll say to me, "Elphaba--A girl who is so superiorShouldn't a girl who's so good insideHave a matching exterior?And since folks here to an absurd degreeSeem fixated on your verdigrisWould it be all right by youIf I de-greenify you?"And though of course, that's not important to me"All right, why not?" I'll replyOh, what a pair we'll beThe Wizard and IYes, what a pair we'll beThe Wizard and
UnlimitedMy future is unlimitedAnd I've just had a visionAlmost like a prophecyI know--it sounds truly crazyAnd true, the vision's hazyBut I swear, someday there'll beA celebration throughout OzThat's all to do with me!
And I'll stand there with the WizardFeeling things I've never feltAnd though I'd never show itI'd be so happy I could melt!And so it will beFor the rest of my lifeAnd I'll want nothing else till I dieHeld in such high esteemWhen people see me, they will screamFor half of Oz's favorite team!The WizardAnd I!
