					Wicked                                                     Alto   Once I‟m with the Wizard,
No One Mourns the Wicked                                   Sop    Once I‟m with the Wizard,
Sop    No one mourns the wicked!                           Alto   My whole life will change.
Alto   No one cries, “They won‟t return!”                  Sop    My whole life will change.
All    No one lays a lily on their grave!                  All    „Cause once you‟re with the Wizard,
Alto   The good man scorns the wicked!                            No one thinks you‟re strange.
Sop    The good man scorns the wicked!                            No father is not proud of you.
Alto   Through their lives,                                       No sister acts ashamed.
All    Our children learn:                                        And all of Oz has to love you,
       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
All   When I meet the Wizard;                              All   One short day in the Emerald City,
      Once I prove my worth.                                     One short day full of so much to do,
      And then I meet the Wizard,                                Ev‟ry way that you look in this city,
      What I‟ve waited for since birth.                          There‟s something exquisite
      And with all his Wizard wisdom,                            You‟ll want to visit
      By my looks, he won‟t be blinded.                          Before the day‟s through!
Sop   Do you think the Wizard is dumb?
Alto  Or like Munchkins, so small minded? (No!)            Sop    There are buildings tall as quoxwood trees,
All   He‟ll say to me, “I see who you truly are:                  Dress salons, and libraries,
      The one on whom I can rely!”                         Alto   Palaces, museums, a hundred strong.
      And that‟s how we‟ll begin, the Wizard and I.        Sop    There are wonders like I‟ve never seen!
       It‟s all grand!                                                  Alto   Because I knew you,
Alto   And it‟s all green!                                              Sop    Because I knew you,
All    I think we‟ve found the place where we belong!                   All    Because I knew you,
       I wanna be in this hoi polloi.                                          I have been changed for good.
Sop    So I‟ll be back for good someday
Alto   To make my life and make my way,                                 Defying Gravity
All    But for today, we‟ll wander and enjoy                            All    Something has changed within me.
                                                                               Something is not the same.
       One short day in the Emerald City,                                      I‟m through with playing by
       One short day to have a lifetime of fun.                                The rules of someone else‟s game.
       One short day, and we‟re warning the city;
       Now that we‟re in here,                                                 Too late for second guessing.
       You‟ll know we‟ve been here before we are done!                         Too late to go back to sleep.
                                                                               It‟s time to trust my instincts,
Sop                              Alto                                          Close my eyes and leap.
One short day                    Who‟s the mage whose major                    It‟s time to try defying gravity.
In the Emerald City.             Itinerary is making all Oz merrier?           I think I‟ll try defying gravity,
One short day                    Who‟s the sage who sagely                     And you can‟t pull me down.
To have a lifetime of fun.       sailed in to save our posteriers.
All     What a way to be seeing the city                                       I‟m through accepting limits
Alto    Where so many roam to.                                                 „Cause someone says they‟re so.
Sop     We‟ll call it home, too.                                               Some things I cannot change,
All     Sharing one wonderful, one short day!                                  But „til I try, I‟ll never know.
                                                                               Too long I‟ve been afraid of
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.
Sop 1                                        Sop 2 and Alto                     Solo    What? Working with who?
To those who ground me,                      Ah                                 Solo                                                    All
Take a message back from me.                 From me.                           Hey, remember when we spent spring break                Ah
                                                                                In the hot tub ev‟ry night?                             Ev‟ry night.
All    Tell them how I am defying gravity.                                      We said nothing else could ever feel so right.
       I‟m flying high, defying gravity,                                        Well, this might!
       And soon I‟ll match them in renown.                                      All     Snap!
Sop 1                                        Sop 2 and Alto

No Wizard that there is or was               Oo                                 Seeing my name up on that list,                  Oo, on that list.

All    The Wicked! Wicked! Wicked!

So Much Better                                                                  All    I feel so much better

Solo   All of this time I planned I‟d be patient and you would love me again.   All    Yes, she‟s so much better than before.
       You‟d come to respect my mind, and at last you‟d find                           Yes, she‟s so much better than before.
       You could love me again.
       And I have turned my whole world upside down trying not to let you go.   Solo   Maybe she‟s what you prefer, but hey, last year I was her.
       Watching you walk away is like a fatal blow.                                    Maybe you will change your mind, but you might look up to find!
       Whoa! Is that my name up on that list?                                          I‟ve gone on to better things, better jobs or bigger rings.
       Does someone know that I exist?                                                 I don‟t have the time to cry. I‟m too busy lovin‟ my

Solo   Oh, Warner?                                                                     Your daughter‟s doing something
       Sorry I‟ve been a pest, but I guess my best was not working with you.    Alto   right.
       But looks like I‟ve found a cure,                                        Sop    Something right.

Solo    No, no, I can‟t wait!                                        Show me a reason and I‟ll soon show you a rhyme.

All     Ah, Oh, oh!                                                  Why do I feel I don‟t fit in anywhere I go?

        I‟ll even dress in black and white.                   All    Rivers belong where they can ramble,
        See, I have not begun to fight!                              Eagles belong where they can fly;
Solo    And you‟ll go                                         Sop 1                                                   Sop 2 and Alto

Solo    I am so much better.                                         Rain comes after thunder, Winter comes after fall.
All     I am so much better.                                         Sometimes I think I‟m not after anything at all.
Solo    I am so much better.
All     I am so much,                                         All    Rivers belong where they can ramble,
