Wonderful
WIZARDI never asked for thisOr planned it in advanceI was merely blown hereBy the winds of chanceI never saw myself As a Solomon or SocratesI knew who I was:One of your dime a dozenMediocrities Then suddenly I'm hereRespected - worshipped, even Just because the folks in OzNeeded someone to believe inDoes it surprise youI got hooked, and all too soon?What can I say?I got carried awayAnd not just by balloon:Wonderful They called me "Wonderful"So I said "Wonderful" - if you insistI will be "Wonderful"And they said "Wonderful"Believe me, it's hard to resist'Cause it feels wonderful They think I'm wonderfulHey, look who's wonderful - This corn-fed hickWho said: "It might be keen To build a town of greenAnd a wonderful road of yellow brick!"See - I never had a family of my own. So, Iguess I just - wanted to give the citizens of Oz everything.ELPHABA
 
So you lied to them.WIZARDElphaba, where I'm from, we believe all sorts of things that aren't true. We call it "history."A man's called a traitor - or liberatorA rich man's a thief - or philanthropistIs one a crusader - or ruthless invader?It's all in which labelIs able to persist There are precious few at easeWith moral ambiguitiesSo we act as though they don't exist They call me "Wonderful"So I am wonderfulIn fact - it's so much who I amIt's part of my nameAnd with my help, you can be the sameAt long, long last receive your dueLong overdueElphaba The most celebratedAre the rehabilitated There'll be such a - whoop-de-dooA celebration throughout Oz That's all to do - with youWonderful They'll call you wonderfulELPHABAIt does sound wonderfulWIZARD Trust me, it's funBOTHWhen you are wonderfulIt would be wonderful?Wonderful, wonderful
