Doctor Dillamond:
Spoken:
Oh, Miss Elphaba - The things one hears these days. Dreadful things...

Sung:
I've heard of an ox
A professor from Quox
No longer permitted to teach
Who has lost all powers of speech
And an owl in Munchkin Rock
A vicar with a thriving flock
Forbidden to preach
Now he can only screech
Only rumors -- but still --
Enough to give pause
To anyone with paws
Something bad is happening in Oz...

Elphaba:
Something bad? Happening in Oz... ?

Dillamond:
Under the surface
Behind the scenes
Something baaaaaad

Spoken:
Sorry... "Bad"...

Elphaba:
Spoken:
Doctor Dillamond
If something ad is happening to the Animals, someone's got to tell the Wizard.
That's why we have a Wizard.

Sung:
So nothing bad...

Dillamond Spoken:
I hope you're right

Both:
Nothing all that bad...

Dillamond:
Nothing truly baaaaaaaad

Spoken:
Sorry... "Bad"...

Elphaba:
It couldn't happen here
In Oz...
