The Wizard And I

Idina Menzel

Oh, Miss elphaba...

many years I have waited

for a gift like yours to appear

why, I predict the wizard

could make you his

magic grand vizier!

my Dear, My Dear

I'll write at once to the Wizard

Tell him of you in advance

with a talent like yours, dear

there is a defin-ish chance

if you work as you should...

you'll be making good

did that really just happen?

have I actually understood?

this weird quirk I've tried

to supress or hide

is a talent that could

help me meet the wizard

if I make good

So i'll make good...

When I meet the wizard

once I prove my worth

And then 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?

No! he'll say to me:

" I see who you truely 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

'cuz 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 soo 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
