Idina Menzel – The Wizard And I lyrics
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 definish 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, since birth
And with all his Wizard wisdom
By my looks, he won't be blinded
Do you think the Wizard is dumb?
Or like Munchkins so small-minded?
No, he'll say to me I see who you truly are
A girl on 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
'Cause 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?"

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

Unlimited
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'd be so happy, I could melt
And so it will be for the rest of my life
And I'll want nothing else 'til 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
