What we miss when we misbehave. When by the Wizard, you‟re acclaimed.
And goodness knows the wicked‟s lives are lonely. And this gift or this curse I have inside,
Goodness knows the wicked die alone. Maybe at last I‟ll know why,
It just shows; when you‟re wicked, As we work hand in hand, the Wizard and I!
You‟re left only on your own.
Yes, goodness knows, we know what goodness is! And I‟ll stand there with the Wizard,
Goodness knows, the wicked die alone. Feeling things I‟ve never felt.
Sop Woe to those And though I‟d never show it,
Alto Woe to those I‟ll be so happy, I could melt!
All Who spurn what goodnesses they are shown. And so it will be for the rest of my life,
No one mourns the wicked! And I‟ll want nothing else „til I die!
No one mourns the wicked! Held in such high esteem,
No one mourns the wicked! When people see me, they will scream
Wicked! For half of Oz‟s fav‟rite team:
Wicked! The Wizard and I!
The Wizard and I One Short Day

For Good Losing love I guess I‟ve lost.
All It well may be that we will never meet again in this lifetime. Well, if that‟s love,
So let me say before we part: It comes at much too high a cost.
So much of me is made of what I learned from you,
You‟ll be with me like a handprint on my heart. I‟d sooner buy defying gravity
And now whatever way our stories end, Kiss me goodbye, I‟m defying gravity,
I know you have rewritten mine by being my friend. And you can‟t pull me down.
Like a ship blown from its mooring by a wind off the sea. So if you care to find me, look to the western sky.
Like a seed dropped by a skybird in a distant wood. As someone told me lately,
Who can say if I‟ve been changed for the better? Ev‟ryone deserves the chance to fly!
I do believe I have been changed for the better. And if I‟m flying solo, at least I‟m flying free.
