Thank Goodness Lyrics

Thank Goodness - Kristin Chenoweth/Carole Shelley

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

 

Like some terrible green blizzard

Throughout the land she flies

 

Defaming our poor Wizard

With her calumnies and lies

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

 

Fellow Ozians

 

As terrifying as terror is let us put

Aside our panic

For this one day and celebrate

 

Oh what a celebration

We'll have today

Thank Goodness

Let's have a celebration

The Glinda way

Thank Goodness

Fin'lly a day that's

Totally Wicked-Witch free

 

We couldn't be happier

Thank Goodness

 

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

 

Oh 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

 

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

 

I hear she has an extra eye

 

I hear some rebel Animals

Are giving her food and shelter

 

I hear her soul is so unclean

Pure water can melt her

What

Melt her

 

Please somebody go

And melt her

Do you hear that

Water will melt her People

Are so empty-headed

They'll believe anything

 

Fiyero Oh yes

Thanks plenty dearest He's gone to

Fetch me a refreshment

 

He's so thoughtful that way

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

 

Well not "simply"

 

'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 like you think it will

Still

With this perfect finale

The cheers and the ballyhoo

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 your dreams come Aaah

True We love you Glinda

If we may be so frank

Thank Goodness

 

For all this joy

We know who we've got to thank

Thank Goodness

 

That means the Wizard Glinda

 

And fiance

They couldn't be goodlier

 

She couldn't be lovelier

We couldn't be luckier

I couldn't be happier

Thank Goodness:

Today

 

Thank Goodness for today
