idina menzel – the wizard and i lyrics


madame morrible:
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 defint-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 suppress 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,
(spoken: since birth!)
and with all his wizard wisdom,
by my looks, he won’t be blinded.
do you think the wizard is (spoken: dumb?)
or, like munchkins, so small-minded?
(spoken: no!) he’ll say to me,
“i see who you truly are –
a girl of 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 so 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 unlimited
and i’ve just had a vision
almost like a prophecy
i know – it sounds truly crazy
and true, the vision’s hazy
but i swear, someday there’ll be
a celebration throughout oz
that’s all to do with me!

and i’ll stand there with the wizard,
feeling things i’ve never felt.
and though i’d never show it,
i’ll be so happy, i could melt!
and so it will be
for the rest of my life,
and i’ll want nothing else
till i die.
held in such high esteem.
when people see me, they will scream
for half of oz’s favorite team;
the wizard
and i!!!!
