GALINDA:
(spoken) Dearest darlingest Momsie and Popsicle:

E

ELPHABA:
(spoken) My dear Father:

BOTH:
There’s been some confusion
Over rooming here at Shiz:

ELPHABA:
But of course, I’ll care for Nessa:

GALINDA:
But of course, I’ll rise above it:

BOTH:
For I know that’s how you’d want me to respond
(Spoken:) Yes
There’s been some confusion
For you see, my roommate is:

GALINDA:
Unusually and exceedingly peculiar
And altogether quite impossible to describe:

ELPHABA:
Blonde.

GALINDA:
What is this feeling,
So sudden and new?

ELPHABA:
I felt the moment
I laid eyes on you;

GALINDA:
My pulse is rushing;

ELPHABA:
My head is reeling;

GALINDA:
My face is flushing;

BOTH:
What is this feeling?
Fervid as a flame,
Does it have a name?
Yes! Loathing
Unadulterated loathing

GALINDA:
For your face;

ELPHABA:
Your voice;

GALINDA:
Your clothing;

BOTH:
Let’s just say – I loathe it all
Ev’ry little trait, however small
Makes my very flesh begin to crawl
With simple utter loathing
There’s a strange exhilaration
In such total detestation
It’s so pure, so strong!
Though I do admit it came on fast
Still I do believe that it can last
And I will be loathing
Loathing you
My whole life long!

STUDENTS:
Dear Galinda, you are just too good
How do you stand it? I don’t think I could!
She’s a terror! She’s a Tartar!
We don’t mean to show a bias,
But Galinda, you’re a martyr!

GALINDA:
Well; these things are sent to try us!

STUDENTS:
Poor Galinda, forced to reside
With someone so disgusticified
We just want to tell you:
We’re all on your side!
We share your;

BOTH:
What is this feeling
So sudden and new?
I felt the moment I laid eyes on you
My pulse is rushing
My head is reeling
Oh, what is this feeling?
Does it have a name?
Yes
Ahhh

STUDENTS (BACKGROUND):
Loathing Unadulterated loathing
For her face, her voice, her clothing
let’s just say – we loathe it all
ev’ry little trait however small
makes our very flesh being to crawl
AHHH!

ALL:
Loathing!

STUDENTS:
loathing

BOTH:
There’s a strange exhilaration

STUDENTS:
loathing

BOTH:
In such total detestation

STUDENTS:
loathing

BOTH:
It’s so pure, so strong

STUDENTS:
So strong!

BOTH:
Though I do admit it came on fast
Still I do believe that it can last
And I will be…

STUDENS (BACKGROUND):
loathing…

BOTH:
loathing
For forever…

STUDENTS (BACKGROUND):
loathing…

BOTH:
loathing,
Truly deeply loathing you
loathing you
My whole Life long!

STUDENTS:
Loathing
Unadulterated loathing

ELPHABA:
Boo!

GALINDA:
AH!

(Elphaba):

I’m limited
Just look at me – I’m limited
And just look at you
You can do all I couldn’t do, Glinda
So now it’s up to you
For both of us – now it’s up to you…

(Glinda):
I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you…

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

(Elphaba):
It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend…

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you

(Glinda):
Because I knew you

(Both):
I have been changed for good

(Elphaba):
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I’ve done you blame me for

(Glinda):
But then, I guess we know
There’s blame to share

(Both):
And none of it seems to matter anymore

(Glinda):
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood

(Elphaba):
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a bird in the wood

(Both):
Who can say if I’ve been
Changed for the better?
I do believe I have been
Changed for the better

(Glinda):
And because I knew you…

(Elphaba):
Because I knew you…

(Both):
Because I knew you…
I have been changed for good…

I’m not afraid to fall
It means I climbed up high
To fall is not to fail
You fail when you dont try
I’m not afraid to fall
I might just learn to fly
And I will spread these wings of mine

If I get up I might fall back down again
so lets get up C’mon
If I get up I might fall back down again
We get up anyway
If I get up I might fall back down again
so lets get up C’mon
If Iget up I might fall back down again
And I might fall back down again
And well just jump and see
Even if its the 20th time
We’ll just jump and see if we can fly

I’m not afraid to fall
And here I told you so
Don’t want to rock the boat
But I just had to know
Just a greener side
Or can I touch the sky
But either way I will try

If I get up I might fall abck down again
So lets get up C’mon
If I get up I might fall back down again
We get up anyway
If I get up I might fall back down again
so lets get up C’mon
If I get up I might fall back down again
and I might fall abck down again
And we’ll just jump and see
Even if its the 30th time
We’ll just jump and see if we can fly

I’m not afraid to fall
I’ve fallen many times
They laughed when I fell down
But I dared to climb
I’m not afraid to fall
I know i’ll fall again
But I can win this in the end

If I get up I might fall back down again
So lets get up C’mon
If I get up I might fall back down again
We get up anyway
If I get up I might fall back down again
So lets get up C’mon
If I get up I might fall back down again
and we’ll just jump and see
Even if its the 40th time
We’ll just jump and see if we can fly

If I get up I might fall back down again
so lets get up C’mon
If I get up I might fall abck down again
We get up anyway
If I get up I might fall back down again
So lets get up C’mon
If I get up I might fall down again
And I might fall back down again
