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
