Paroles de The Wizard And I


(spoken) Oh, Miss Elphaba:

(sung) 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

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

'Cuz 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 and 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?"

And though 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'll be so happy, I could melt!

And so it will be

For the rest of my life

And I'll want nothing else

Till I die

Held in such high esteem

When people see me, they will scream

For half of Oz's fav'rite team:

The Wizard

And I!
