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

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
