Paroles de Popular


(spoken) Elphie - now that we're friends, I've decided to

make you my new project.


(spoken) You really don't have to do that


(spoken) I know. That's what makes me so nice!

(sung) Whenever I see someone

Less fortunate than I

(And let's face it - who isn't

Less fortunate than I?)
And when someone needs a makeover

I simply have to take over

I know I know exactly what they need

And even in your case

Tho' it's the toughest case I've yet to face

Don't worry - I'm determined to succeed

Follow my lead

And yes, indeed

You will be:


You're gonna be popular!

I'll teach you the proper ploys

When you talk to boys

Little ways to flirt and flounce

I'll show you what shoes to wear

How to fix your hair

Everything that really counts

To be popular

I'll help you be popular!

You'll hang with the right cohorts

You'll be good at sports

Know the slang you've got to know

So let's start

'Cause you've got an awfully long way to go:

Don't be offended by my frank analysis

Think of it as personality dialysis

Now that I've chosen to be come a pal, a

Sister and adviser

There's nobody wiser

Not when it comes to popular -

I know about popular

And with an assist from me

To be who you'll bee

Instead of dreary who-you-were: are:

There's nothing that can stop you

From becoming popu-

Ler: lar:

La la la la

We're gonna make

You popular

When I see depressing creatures

With unprepossessing features

I remind them on their own behalf

To think of

Celebrated heads of state or

Specially great communicators

Did they have brains or knowledge?

Don't make me laugh!

They were popular! Please -

It's all about popular!

It's not about aptitude

It's the way you're viewed

So it's very shrewd to be

Very very popular

Like me!

(spoken) Why, Miss Elphaba, look at you. You're beautiful.

ELPHABA(spoken) I - I have to go:


(spoken) You're welcome!

(sung) And though you protest

Your disinterest

I know clandestinely

You're gonna grin and bear it

Your new found popularity

La la la la

You'll be popular -

Just not as quite as popular

As me!
