Elphaba (Spoken):
"Come with me, to the Emerald City"

Tourists:
One short day
In the Emerald city

Glinda (Spoken):
"Oh, I've always wanted to see the Emerald City"

Tourists:
One short day
In the Emerald City

One short day
In the Emerald City
One short day
Full of so much to do
Ev'ry way that you look in the city
There's something exquisite
That you'll want to visit
Before the days through

Elphaba:
There are buildings as tall as Quoxwood trees

Glinda:
Dress salons

Elphaba:
And libraries

Glinda:
Palaces

Elphaba:
Museums

Both:
A hundred strong
There are wonders like I've never seen

Glinda:
It's all grand

Elphaba:
And it's all green

Both:
I think we've found the place where we belong!
I wanna be
In this hoi polloi

Elphaba:
So I'll be back for good someday!

Both:
To make my life and make my way
But for today, we'll wander and enjoy

Tourists:
One short day
In the Emerald City
One short day
To have a lifetime of fun
One short day

Glinda and Elphaba:
And were warning the city
Now that we're in here
You'll know we've been here

All:
Before we are done!

Glinda (Spoken):
"Elphie-come on-we'll be late for Wizomania!"

Wizomania Chorus:
Who's the mage
Whose major itinerary
Is making all Oz merrier?
Who's the sage
Who's sagely sailed in to save our posteriors?
Whose enthuse for hot air ballooning
Has all of Oz honeymooning?
Woo - oo -oo
Wizn't he wonderful?
(Our wonderful Wizard!)

Audience: Wizomania Chorus:
One short day Who's the mage
In the Emerald City Whose major itinerary
One short day Is making all Oz merrier
To have a lifetime Whose the sage who
Of fun Sagely sailed in to save
What a way Our posteriors
To be seeing the city

Elphaba and Glinda:
Where so many roam to
We'll call it home too
And then just like now we can say,
Were just two friends

Elphaba:
Two good friends

Glinda:
Two best friends

All:
Sharing one wonderful
One short...

Guard (Spoken):
"The wizard will see you now!"

All:
... Day!
