Wicked – Thank Goodness lyrics

Citizens of oz:
Ev'ry day, more wicked
Ev'ry day, the terror grows
All of Oz is ever on alert
That's the way with Wicked -
Spreading fear where e'er she goes
Seeking out new victims she can hurt

A hysterical woman:
Like some terrible green blizzard
Throughout the land she flies:

An outraged man:
Defaming our poor Wizard
With her calamies and lies

All:
She lies
Save us from the Wicked
Shield us so we won't be hexed
Give us warning:
Where will she strike next?
Where will she strike next?
Where will she strike next?

Glinda:
(Spoken) Fellow Ozians - as terrifying as terror is, let us put
Aside our panic for this one day: and celebrate!
(Sung) Oh what a celebration
We'll have today

Crowd:
Thank Goodness!

Glinda:
Let's have a celebration
The Glinda way!

Crowd:
Thank Goodness!

Morrible:
Fin'lly a day that's
Totally Wicked-Witch free!

Crowd:
We couldn't be happier
Thank Goodness!

Glinda:
Yes -
We couldn't be happier,
Right, dear?
Couldn't be happier
Right here
Look what we've got
A fairy-tale plot
Our very own happy ending
Where we couldn't be happier -
True, dear?
Couldn't be happier
And we're happy to share
Our ending vicariously
With all of you
He couldn't look handsomer
I couldn't feel humbler
We couldn't be happier
Because happy is what happens
When all your dreams come true!

Morrible:
(Spoken) And Glinda dear, we're happy for you! As Press
Secretary, I have striven to ensure that all of Oz
Knows the story of your braverism:

(Sung) The day you were first summoned
To an audience with Oz
And although he would not tell you why initially
When you bowed before his throne
He decreed you'd hence be known
As Glinda the Good - officially!

Then with a jealous squeal
The Wicked Witch burst from concealment
Where she had been lurking -surrpetitially!

Persons in crowd:
I hear she has an extra eye
That always remains awake
I hear that she can she'd her skin
As easily as a snake!
I hear some rebel Animals
Are giving her food and shelter!
I hear her soul is so unclean
Pure water can melt her!

Fiyero:
What! ?

Crowd:
Melt her! ?
Please - somebody go and melt her!

Fiyero:
(Spoken) Do you hear that - water will melt her! People
Are so empty-headed, they'll believe anything!

Glinda:
(Spoken) Fiyero! Oh - yes, thanks plenty, dearest! He's gone to
Fetch me a refreshment. He's so thoughtful that way!

(Sung) That's why I couldn't be happier
No, I couldn't be happier
Though it is, I admit
The tiniest bit
Unlike I anticipated
But I couldn't be happier
Simply couldn't be happier
(Spoken) Well - not "simply":
(Sung) 'Cause getting your dreams
It's strange, but it seems
A little - well - complicated
There's a kind of a sort of: cost
There's a couple of things get: lost
There are bridges you cross
You didn't know you crossed
Until you've crossed
And if that joy, that thrill
Doesn't thrill you like you think it will
Still -
With this perfect finale
The cheers in the valley
Who- Who?
Wouldn't be happier?
So I couldn't be happier
Because happy is what happens
When all your dreams come true
Well, isn't it?
Happy is what happens
When all your dreams come true!

Crowd:
We love you, Glinda, if we may be so frank

Glinda:
Thank Goodness!

Crowd:
For all this joy, we know who we've got to thank:
Thank Goodness!
That means the Wizard, Glinda:

Glinda:
And fiance!

Crowd:
They couldn't be goodlier
She couldn't be lovelier
We couldn't be luckier

Glinda:
I couldn't be happier

Crowd:
Thank Goodness:

Glinda and crowd:
Today!
Thank Goodness for today!
