(spoken dialogue over intro)
Elphaba, why couldn't you stay calm for once?
Instead of flying off the handle?
I hope you're happy!
I hope you're happy, now!
I hope your happy how you hurt your cause forever;
I hope you think you're clever!
I hope you're happy!
I hope you're happy, too...
I hope you're proud how you
Would gravel in submission to feed your own ambition!
So though I can't imagine how...
I hope you're happy, right now
Elphie, listen to me, just say you're sorry...
You can still be with the wizard,
What you've worked and waited for
You can have all you ever wanted
But I dont want it.
No, I can't want it
Something has changed within me
something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
of someone else's game
Too late for second guessing
To late to go back to sleep
Is time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes...
It's time to try defying gravity
I think i'll try defying gravity
and you can't pull me down
Can't I make you understand?
Yo're having delusions of grandeur...
I'm through accepting limits
Cause someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till i try i'll never know
Too long i've been afraid of
Losing love, i guess i lost
Well if thats love,
It comes at much too high a cost!
I'd sooner try defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye i'm defying gravity
And you can pull me down!
Glinda, come with me...
Think of what we could do... together.
Together we're unlimited
Together well be the greatest team
There's ever been,
Glinda, dreams the way we planned 'em
if we work intandum...
there's no fight we cannot win
just you and I defying gravity
with you and I defying gravity
they'll never bring us down!
Well, are you coming?
I hope your happy, now that your choosing this..
I hope it brings you bliss
I really hope you get it
And you dont live to regret it
I hope you're happy in the end......
I hope you're happy, my friend...
So if you care to find me,
Look to the western sky!
As someone told me lately
"Everyone deserves a chance to fly!"
And if I'm flying solo
At least I'm flying free.
To those who'd ground me,
Take a message back from me:
Tell them how I am defying gravity
I'm flying high -- defying gravity
And soon I'll them in renown
And nobody in all of Oz,
No wizard that there is or was,
Is ever gonna bring me down!
I hope you're happy...
(Go get her, shes wicked, get her!)
Bring me down!
(No one mourns the wicked)
(So we've got to bring her... down!)
Oh ah, ah, ah!
