GLINDA (spoken) Elphaba - why couldn't you have stayed calm for Once, instead of flying off the handle! I hope you're happy! (sung) I hope you're happy now I hope you're happy how you Hurt your cause forever I hope you think you're clever!
ELPHABA I hope you're happy I hope you're happy, too I hope you're proud how you Would grovel in submission To feed your own ambition
BOTH So though I can't imagine how I hope you're happy right now
GLINDA (spoken) Elphie, listen to me. Just say you're sorry: (sung) You can still be with the Wizard What you've worked and waited for You can have all you ever wanted:
ELPHABA (spoken) I know: (sung) But I don't want it - No - I can't want it Anymore:
Something has changed within me Something is not the same I'm through with playing by the rules Of someone else's game Too late for second-guessing Too late to go back to sleep It's time to trust my instincts Close my eyes: and leap!
It's time to try Defying gravity I think I'll try Defying gravity And you can't pull me down!
GLINDA Can't I make you understand? You're having delusions of grandeur:
ELPHABA I'm through accepting limits ''cause someone says they're so Some things I cannot change But till I try, I'll never know! Too long I've been afraid of Losing love I guess I've lost Well, if that's love It comes at much too high a cost! I'd sooner buy Defying gravity Kiss me goodbye I'm defying gravity And you can't pull me down: (spoken) Glinda - come with me. Think of what we could Do: together.
(sung) Unlimited Together we're unlimited Together we'll be the greatest team There's ever been Glinda - Dreams, the way we planned 'em
GLINDA If we work in tandem:
BOTH There's no fight we cannot win Just you and I Defying gravity With you and I Defying gravity
ELPHABA They'll never bring us down! (spoken) Well? Are you coming?
GLINDA I hope you're happy Now that you're choosing this
ELPHABA (spoken) You too (sung) I hope it brings you bliss
BOTH I really hope you get it And you don't live to regret it I hope you're happy in the end I hope you're happy, my friend:
ELPHABA So if you care to find me Look to the western sky! As someone told me lately: "Ev'ryone deserves the chance to fly!" And if I'm flying solo At least I'm flying free To those who'd ground me Take a message back from me Tell them how I am Defying gravity I'm flying high Defying gravity And soon I'll match them in renown And nobody in all of Oz No Wizard that there is or was Is ever gonna bring me down!
GLINDA I hope you're happy!
CITIZENS OF OZ Look at her, she's wicked! Get her!
ELPHABA :Bring me down!
CITIZENS OF OZ No one mourns the wicked So we've got to bring her
