The Wizard And I Lyrics

The Wizard And I - Carole Shelley

Written by:Stephen Sch

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 defin-ish 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



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



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
